It’s business as usual for the NFL. The league’s owners announced that starting next season there will be more playoff action and a slight change in its playoff format.
Only one team in each conference will now receive a bye, meaning Wild Card Weekend will feature six games in total: three on Saturday and three on Sunday.
Wild-Card Weekend for the 2020 season will consist of three games on Saturday, Jan. 9, and three games on Sunday, Jan. 10, 2021. CBS will broadcast one additional Wild-Card game on Jan. 10 with kickoff at approximately 4:40 p.m. ET.
