2023 NFL Playoff Schedule Bracket: Date, Time, Live Stream, TV for Eagles vs. Chiefs in Super Bowl LVII

The Super Bowl is officially set: The Kansas City Chiefs will face off against the Philadelphia Eagles to see who will take home the Lombardi Trophy. One of those two teams will win their second Lombardi Trophy in the last six seasons.

The Chiefs punched their ticket to Arizona on Sunday by defeating the Bengals 23-20 in a thrilling AFC Championship game. The game wasn’t decided until Harrison Butker made a 45-yard field goal with just three seconds left. The Chiefs are now headed to the Super Bowl for the third time in four years.

The Chiefs will face an Eagles team that advanced to the Super Bowl after dominating the 49ers 31-7 in the NFC Championship Game. The Eagles didn’t even produce 300 yards of total offense against San Francisco, but they did force three turnovers that led to 14 points.

Super Bowl LVII will mark Philadelphia’s fourth trip to the big game. In 2017, the Eagles defeated the Patriots 41-33 in Super Bowl Super LII. They also played in Super Bowls XV and XXXIX, which were losses. This will be the fifth Super Bowl appearance for the Chiefs, who have gone 2-2 in their previous four appearances.

With that in mind, here’s a look at the entire postseason schedule and bracket.

Super Bowl LVII

February 12 (Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona)

Chiefs vs. Eagles, 6:30 p.m. ET (Fox, stream on fuboTV). This biggest early storyline in this game will revolve around Andy Reid. The Chiefs coach spent the first 14 seasons of his coaching career in Philadelphia before being fired in 2012. Reid was then hired by the Chiefs in 2013 and now, in his 10th season, will get the chance to avenge the his old team. Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce will also get a chance to face off against his brother, Eagles center Jason Kelce. The Eagles have been the best team in the NFL all season, but the Chiefs definitely have the talent to take them down.

Here’s a detailed look at how we got to Super Bowl LVII.

Super Wild Card weekend

Saturday, January 14

  • (2) 49ers 41-23 over (7) Seahawks. The 49ers got a brief scare from the Seahawks on a day when Seattle jumped out to a 17-16 halftime lead. But in the second half, San Francisco opened the game with a dominant performance. Brock Purdy threw for 332 yards while becoming the first rookie in NFL history to total four touchdowns in a playoff game. (Purdy finished with three passing touchdowns and one rushing score).
  • (4) Jaguars 31-30 over (5) Chargers. The Jaguars won that game, pulling off one of the greatest comebacks in NFL history. The Jags fell behind, 27-0, early in the game, in large part due to four interceptions by Trevor Lawrence, but they rebounded to pull off the stunning victory, thanks in large part to Lawrence, who threw four touchdown passes.

Sunday, January 15

  • (2) Bills 34-31 for (7) Dolphins. The Dolphins came into this game as the biggest underdog in wild card history (+14), and despite those odds, they still managed to put a big scare into the Bills. In the end, the Bills were able to avoid the upset thanks to Josh Allen (352 passing, three touchdowns) and a defense that came up with numerous big plays, including two turnovers, four sacks and a fourth down that iced the game with just 2:30 left.
  • (6) Giants 31-24 over (3) Vikings. New York was able to pull off the upset in Minnesota thanks to a historic performance by Daniel Jones, who became the FIRST QB in NFL playoff history to throw for at least 300 and two touchdowns while adding at least 70 yards on the ground. Not only did Jones throw for 301 yards, but he was the game’s leading rusher with 78 yards on 17 carries. The win over Minnesota marked the Giants’ first playoff win since beating the Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI in February 2012.
  • (3) Bengals 24-17 over (6) Ravens. The Ravens had Cincinnati on the ropes for most of that game, but the Bengals were able to run away with a win thanks to their defense, which led to one of the biggest plays in NFL postseason history. With the Ravens at the Cincinnati one-yard line, Tyler Huntley fumbled and Sam Hubbard returned that fumble 98 yards for what ended up being the game-winning touchdown.

Monday, January 16

  • (5) Cowboys 31-14 over (4) Pirates. The Cowboys dominated this game from start to finish and a big reason why that happened was because of Dak Prescott having a historic big night. The Cowboys QB set a franchise record with five total touchdowns (four passing, one punt) while throwing for 305 yards. The only Cowboys player who struggled in that game was kicker Brett Maher, who missed an NFL-record four extra points. The Cowboys will now have to decide if they want to hold him for Sunday’s game in San Francisco.

Divisional round

Saturday, January 21

  • (1) Chiefs 27-20 over (4) Jaguars. After leaving the game in the second quarter with a serious ankle injury, Patrick Mahomes returned in the second half to lead the Chiefs to victory. Playing on one leg didn’t seem to slow him down as he completed 10 of 15 passes for 107 yards after suffering the injury. The Chiefs defense also made two key turnovers in the fourth quarter to help Kansas City to its fifth straight AFC title game.
  • (1) Eagles 38-7 over (6) Giants. The Eagles jumped out to a 28-0 halftime lead and then cruised to victory from there. The Eagles were able to get the dominant victory thanks to a defense that racked up five sacks and a rushing attack that totaled 268 yards on the ground. Jalen Hurts also had a great night, and more importantly, his shoulder looked completely healthy as he totaled three touchdowns (two passing and one rushing).

Sunday, January 22

  • (3) Bengals 27-10 over (2) Billa. The Bengals offense put up some big numbers, but it was the defense that stole the show in this game. The Bengals limited the Bills to just 10 points, which was Buffalo’s lowest total of the season. Cincinnati’s offense also came up with a big game that included 242 yards and two touchdowns from Joe Burrow along with 105 yards rushing from Joe Mixon.
  • (2) 49ers 19-12 over (5) Cowboys. The 49ers earned their second straight trip to the NFC Championship by winning a defensive battle with the Cowboys. The 49ers beat Dak Prescott twice and got six points off those turnovers, and that proved to be the difference in the game. Robbie Gould proved to be a huge weapon for the 49ers, scoring 13 of their 19 points with four field goals and one extra point.

Championship Sunday

January 29

NFC Championship

  • (1) Eagles 31-7 over (2) 49ers. The 49ers were already on their third quarterback entering this game, then lost two more with Brock Purdy (elbow) and Josh Johnson (concussion), both out. Although Purdy would eventually return, he couldn’t throw the ball and that made this an easy win for the Eagles, who never looked back after jumping out to a 21-7 halftime lead.

AFC Championship

  • (1) Chiefs 23-20 over (3) Bengals. The Chiefs defense spent four quarters battling Joe Burrow. Not only was the Bengals quarterback sacked five times, but he also threw two interceptions. The Chiefs offense wasn’t flashy, but a limping Patrick Mahomes came through with a key 5-yard run in the final seconds that set up Harrison Butker’s game-winning field goal. The Chiefs jumped out to an early 6-0 lead and never trailed during their victory.
