NFL playoff schedule: The wild-card round is set; see the matchups

All but written off before the season, Pete Carroll and the Seahawks advanced to the playoffs as the NFC's No. 7 seed.Jane Gershovich/Getty

When the Packers fell to the Lions on Sunday night, it sent the Seahawks into the playoffs as the No. 7 seed in the NFC.

And with that, the 2023 NFL playoff schedule is set.

Sunday’s 1 p.m. NFL slate was packed with stakes in the AFC. The Patriots, Steelers, and Dolphins were all in position to snag No. 7 seed and the final playoff spot before Miami clinched its first postseason berth since 2016 on a 50-yard field goal in the final minute.

The wild-card round will feature games on Saturday (4:30 and 8:15), Sunday (1, 4, and 8:15), and Monday (8:15 p.m.). The Sunday night game will be on NBC/Peacock and the Monday night game will be on ESPN/ABC/ESPN+.
