NFL Playoff schedule 2023: Dates, times, teams

We hope you’re ready for some NFL playoff football! The 2023 Super Bowl, officially called Super Bowl LVII (or Super Bowl 57 for those who can’t stand Roman numerals), pits Jalen Hurts’s Philadelphia Eagles against Patrick Mahomes’s Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, February 12. The Eagles are chasing their second Super Bowl victory, while the Chiefs hope to add a third Lombardi Trophy to their collection. 

Below you will find the entire 2023 NFL playoff schedule, complete with details on how to safely and securely stream every game with ExpressVPN.

When do the 2023 NFL playoffs start?

The 2023 NFL playoffs began on Saturday, January 14, when Christian McCaffrey and the NFC West-winning San Francisco 49ers defeated Geno Smith and the Seattle Seahawks.

Super Bowl LVII

To watch the entire 2022-23 NFL season (including the Super Bowl and NFL Draft), we recommend purchasing International Game Pass when logged into a server in Bolivia for approximately 23 USD through July 2023. That is the cheapest Game Pass option available, and will give you EVERY game you want for the duration of the season, and includes the U.S. Super Bowl feed with Super Bowl commercials. It also includes a 7-day free trial.

Eagles (NFC champions) vs. Chiefs (AFC champions): It all comes down to this. The Eagles and Chiefs have each won Super Bowls in the last five years, and both are hungry to enjoy another championship parade. Although Eagles QB Jalen Hurts (shoulder) and Chiefs gunslinger Patrick Mahomes (ankle) have been hobbled in recent weeks, both are expected to be fully ready for the Super Bowl, and we’re amped to see how this year’s Big Game turns out. We not only believe the experienced Chiefs will earn a 28-21 victory, but that Kansas City tight end Travis Kelce will earn Super Bowl MVP honors along the way (much to the chagrin of his brother, Eagles center and fellow All-Pro Jason Kelce).

Super Bowl LVII schedule

Super Bowl Sunday is always a busy day! Here’s a rough outline of when football fans should expect every meaningful event during Super Bowl LVII.

When does the Super Bowl pregame show start?

Fox will officially begin its pregame coverage at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday, February 13.

When will the national anthem be played?

Country music superstar and eight-time Grammy Award winner Chris Stapleton will sing the national anthem at Super Bowl 57, and 12-time Grammy Award winner Babyface will sing “America the Beautiful.” Emmy-award-winning actress, Sheryl Lee Ralph, will sing “Lift Every Voice and Sing.” As the game is slated to kick off shortly after 6:30 p.m. ET, football fans should expect to hear all three songs shortly after 6 p.m.

When does Super Bowl LVII begin?

Although Super Bowl LVII officially has a 6:30 p.m. ET kickoff time, the game likely won’t start until roughly 6:35 because of commercials.

When is the Super Bowl LVII halftime show?

The Super Bowl LVII halftime show does not have a set start or end time. Rihanna will take the stage shortly after the first half ends. However, barring any lengthy delays, the halftime show will likely begin sometime around 8:15 p.m. ET.

When is the Super Bowl LVII trophy presentation?

Barring any lengthy delays or the game going to overtime, Super Bowl LVII will likely end sometime around 10 p.m. ET. Expect the trophy presentation to begin shortly thereafter.

49ers (NFC West champions) vs. Seahawks (Wild Card): 49ers rookie quarterback Brock Purdy totaled four touchdowns (three passing, one rushing) in a 41-23 home victory over the rival Seahawks. San Francisco outscored Seattle 25-6 in the second half.

Vikings (NFC North champions) vs. Giants (Wild Card): Giants quarterback Daniel Jones played arguably the best game of his four-year NFL career, totaling 379 all-purpose yards (301 passing, 78 rushing) and scoring twice in a 31-24 road upset over the Vikings. New York won its first playoff game since defeating the New England Patriots in Super Bowl 46 over a decade ago.

Buccaneers (NFC South champions) vs. Cowboys (Wild Card): Dak Prescott accounted for five touchdowns, including four in the air, and the Cowboys dominated Tom Brady’s Buccaneers to end Super Wild Card Weekend. Dallas shut Tampa Bay out in the first half en route to a commanding 31-14 win.

Jaguars (AFC South champions) vs. Chargers (Wild Card): No lead is safe when the Los Angeles Chargers are involved. Despite trailing 27-0 in the second quarter, the Jaguars rallied and walked away with a thrilling 31-30 victory over the Bolts. Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence threw four touchdowns and three touchdowns in the club’s first playoff victory since January 2018.

Bills (AFC East champions) vs. Dolphins (Wild Card): Things looked over when the reeling, injury-plagued Dolphins went down 17-0 in the second quarter. However, rookie quarterback Skylar Thompson teamed up with a hungry defense to keep Miami in the hunt against the heavily-favored Bills. Nonetheless, Josh Allen and the Bills escaped with a 34-31 victory over their AFC East rivals.

Bengals (AFC North champions) vs. Ravens (Wild Card): Momentum favored the fading Ravens, who had an opportunity to take the lead in the fourth quarter. However, Baltimore quarterback Tyler Huntley fumbled at the goal line, and Bengals defensive end Sam Hubbard took the ball 98 yards for a touchdown and a 24-17 lead. Cincinnati held on and knocked their AFC North rivals out of the playoffs.

49ers (NFC West Champions) vs. Cowboys (Wild Card): A stingy 49ers defense picked off Dak Prescott twice and kept the Cowboys in check all game. San Francisco rode a Christian McCaffrey touchdown and four Robbie Gould field goals to a 19-12 win.

Chiefs (AFC West champions) vs. Jaguars (AFC South champions): All hail Chad Henne! Although Patrick Mahomes threw two touchdowns in the Chiefs’ 27-20 victory over the Jaguars, the true story was Henne, the 37-year-old backup who led a 98-yard scoring drive when Mahomes left with an ankle injury. Kansas City remained undefeated in the Divisional Round with Mahomes as the starter (5-0).

Bills (AFC East champions) vs. Bengals (AFC North champions): Josh Allen vs. Joe Burrow is the playoff quarterback matchup we deserved, and Burrow showed out in his latest road playoff game. The LSU product threw two touchdowns in a 27-10 road upset over the Bills. Meanwhile, Allen threw an interception and fell short of the AFC Championship Game for the second straight year.
