Seedings, dates and times for wild-card weekend

If the Chargers and Raiders tie, the Patriots will remain the fifth seed and play the Bengals. The Chargers are a 3.5-point favorite. A Chargers-Raiders tie would also mean the Steelers are eliminated from the playoffs and both teams on Sunday night would be in the playoffs.

Here’s a rundown of the NFL playoff schedule as we know it now, plus key dates for the remainder of the postseason.
