NFL releases wild-card playoff schedule

The NFL dropped its wild-card playoff schedule late Sunday night, with six games slated for next Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

The Tennessee Titans (12-5) earned the top seed in the AFC and thus, a first-round bye and home-field advantage in the conference. In the NFC, the Green Bay Packers (13-4) secured the No. 1 seed, first-round bye and home-field advantage.

While all three NFC wild-card matchups are set, the pairings in the AFC depended on the outcome of Week 18's "Sunday Night Football" game between the Las Vegas Raiders and Los Angeles Chargers.

The Raiders won the game, 35-32, in overtime.

With the Raiders' win, the Patriots will take on the Bills, the Bengals will host Las Vegas and the Steelers will face the Chiefs.
