The NFL regular season is in the rearview mirror, playoff matchups have been set, and wild-card weekend is on the horizon.
The Ravens, behind likely MVP quarterback Lamar Jackson, will enter as the No. 1 seed in the AFC and the favorites to win Super Bowl 54. The defending champion Patriots’ Week 17 loss to the Dolphins pushed them to the No. 3 seed and allowed the Chiefs to enjoy a first-round bye.
The NFC picture is more crowded. The 49ers are the No. 1 seed, but they won’t be favored too significantly over the Saints, Packers, Vikings and Seahawks.
Here’s everything you need to know about what’s sure to be an exciting month of postseason football.
