NFL Playoff Schedule: AFC Teams Are Set

The NFL Playoff schedule for the AFC teams has been set. With the Baltimore Ravens win over the Kansas City Chiefs, the Ravens will face the Pittsburgh Steelers at 4:30PM at Heinz Field on Saturday, January 15. The two teams split their regular season match-ups - each winning on the road.

The other game is also a divisional matchup with the New York Jets traveling to Foxborough, MA to take on the New England Patriots on Sunday, January 16 at 4:30. Like the Steelers and Ravens, each team won their game at home. The Patriots got the last laugh, however, beating the Jets 45-3 just a few weeks to go.

Even though both AFC Wild Card games were won by the road team, there is little doubt that the four best teams in the AFC are playing for the right to go to the AFC Championship game.
