The Pittsburgh Steelers joined a host of teams that were bounced from the NFL Playoffs during Super Wild Card Weekend. After the Steelers vs. Bills game was moved to Monday afternoon due to extreme weather conditions, Mike Tomlin's squad ended up trailing by multiple scores early and couldn't bounce back.
Joining the Steelers this past weekend were the Browns, Dolphins, Cowboys, Rams, and Eagles. Each of these six teams will now enter off-season mode as they look for ways to improve and not stall out early in 2024.
Surprisingly, there was only one game during the Wild Card round that came down to the wire (the Rams vs. Lions game). The rest were essentially blowouts, but several underdogs like the Packers, Buccaneers, and Texans rose to the occasion.
Now we are getting set to head into a highly-anticipated Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs that should have every football fan salivating. Here are the remaining teams, dates, and full TV and streaming schedule for the Divisional Round games on Saturday and Sunday this week.
