After the wildest season in NFL history, we have finally reached the end of the first-ever NFL Super Wildcard Weekend. Sunday’s slate of three games will be covered on a plethora of networks and services that gives cord cutters more options than ever to watch all of the action on the gridiron.
Find out how to watch all of Sunday’s Super Wildcard Weekend games on the road to Super Bowl LV below.
The Games – Start Times and Channel
|Game||Kickoff Time||TV Channel|
|Baltimore Ravens at Tennessee Titans||1:05 p.m. ET||ESPN/ABC|
|Chicago Bears at New Orleans Saints||4:40 p.m. ET||CBS, Nickelodeon, Amazon Prime|
|Cleveland Browns at Pittsburgh Steelers||8:15 p.m. ET||NBC, Telemundo, Peacock|
The early game will be an AFC showdown when two 11-5 teams come head-to-head in this 2020 playoff rematch at 1:05 p.m. ET on ESPN and ABC. The AFC South Champions No. 4 Tennessee Titans welcome No. 5 Baltimore Ravens to Nissan Stadium. Ravens QB Lamar Jackson is looking for his first playoff win after being routed by the Titans 28-12 last postseason. The Titans are led by 2,000-yard rusher Derrick Henry in what is sure to be a physical game.
The second game of the day is a Week 8 rematch between the NFC South Champions No. 2 New Orleans Saints (12-4) and No. 7 Chicago Bears (8-8) at 4:40 p.m. ET on CBS, Amazon Prime, and for the first time ever, a kid-friendly “slime-filled” broadcast on Nickelodeon. Unlike their Week 8 matchup where the Saints were victorious in overtime 26-23, the Bears will be traveling to New Orleans this time around where 3,000 fans will be in attendance.
Sunday’s main event is an AFC North rubber match, as the AFC North Champions No. 3 Pittsburgh Steelers (12-4) welcome the No. 6 Cleveland Browns to Heinz Field at 8:15 p.m. ET on NBC, Telemundo, and Peacock. After defeating the Steelers this past Sunday and clenching their first playoff berth in 18 years, the Browns practiced for the first time this week on Friday heading into this game due to COVID-19 protocols.

Predictions: Wildcard Weekend will end with wildcards winning.
Sunday will be former NFL MVP Lamar Jackson’s first playoff victory. Expect a physical game between the Titans and Ravens with Titans RB Derrick Henry having a big day. His big day will be for naught as the Ravens are going to march in and out of Nissan Stadium with a 37-30 victory behind the arms and legs of Lamar Jackson.
Nickelodeon broadcasting an NFL Playoff game will be fun to watch with the kids and the family. Mitchell Tribusky defeating Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints at the Mercedes Benz Superdome in what may be Brees’ last game would be the slime on top. Khalil Mack and the Bears’ defense will make it hard for Brees, and if the Bears’ offense can manage to keep the Saints off the field then they will avenge their Week 8 loss with a 24-20 playoff victory.
After waiting 18 years, the Cleveland faithful and the Dawg Pound can finally watch their Browns in a playoff game. In 2002, they lost to the Steelers in the Wildcard Round 36-33 at Heinz Field. Although the Browns have only started practicing 48 hours before kickoff and their head coach will not be at the game due to COVID-19 protocols, the Browns are going to shock the world in an upset. The Steelers 12-4 record isn’t as impressive as it suggests, and the Browns are going to prove the naysayers wrong with a 23-17 win.
