The 2020 NFL playoff bracket is settled, and the wild card round is a mere six days away. The AFC side was settled by the end of the 4:25 p.m. games, while we had to until near midnight for the NFC side of the playoff picture. It was a wild day, but it sets up what should be a fun playoff bracket.

AFC playoff bracket

The Patriots blew a chance at the No. 2 seed and now have to play in the wild card round. They face a dangerous Titans squad that has Derrick Henry rolling and Ryan Tannehill playing the best football of his career. Meanwhile, the Texans host the Bills after both teams had what are effectively mini-byes in Week 17.

Tennessee Titans (6) @ New England Patriots (3) — Saturday, January 4, 8:15 p.m. CBS
Buffalo Bills (5) @ Houston Texans (4): Saturday, January 4, 4:35 p.m. ESPN

Divisional round
