Sunday Ravens-Bengals update: The Bengals beat the Ravens on Sunday to finalize the AFC playoff bracket in the Divisional Round. The Jaguars will travel to play the Chiefs next weekend.

Sunday Bills-Dolphins update: The Bills won a wild one over the Dolphins 34-31 to advance to the Divisional Round. This means that the Jaguars will either play the Chiefs or the Bills this coming weekend. If the Bengals beat the Ravens, Jacksonville will travel to Kansas City. If the Ravens beat the Bengals, Jacksonville will travel to Buffalo.


The Jacksonville Jaguars were able to pull off one of the biggest comebacks in NFL playoff history to defeat the Los Angeles Chargers 31-30 at home on Saturday night to advance to the Divisional Round of the postseason. After having perhaps the worst first half in playoff history, QB Trevor Lawrence ended up throwing for three TDs in the second half to lead the charge. He had thrown four INTs in the first half. Let’s look at who the Jags will face in the second round next weekend.

The Jaguars are the 4-seed so the most likely scenario is that they will face the Kansas City Chiefs in the second round. The No. 2 Buffalo Bills face the No. 7 Miami Dolphins while the No. 3 Cincinnati Bengals take on the No. 6 Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. If the Bills and Bengals both win, the Jags face the Chiefs. If the Ravens or Dolphins pull off upsets, the Jaguars would avoid facing the Chiefs and would face the Bengals or Bills.
