The Los Angeles Rams head to sunny Tampa to take on the Buccaneers at 3 p.m. while the Buffalo Bills travel to Arrowhead Stadium Sunday to take on the Kansas City Chiefs at 6:40 p.m. on for the NFL’s Divisional Round Sunday slate.

Let’s take a dive into what you need to know for each game.

Rams at Buccaneers

NFL: NFC Wild Card Playoffs-Philadelphia Eagles at Tampa Bay Buccaneers Nathan Ray Seebeck-USA TODAY Sports

Arguably the star attraction of the weekend, the high flying Rams offense take on the similarly strong Buccaneers team on Sunday’s first matchup. Both teams had little trouble defeating their opponents en route to their game. Tampa Bay took out Philadelphia 31-15 while the Rams ended the Cardinals season with a 34-11 defeat.

The last time the Rams and Bucs played each other was in Week 3. It will have been four months since that game, when the Rams beat the Buccaneers 34-24 in Los Angeles.

Bills at Chiefs

NFL: Buffalo Bills at Kansas City Chiefs Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills head to Kansas City to take on the Chiefs after both teams easily took out their opponents during Wild Card weekend. The Bills hammered the Patriots 47-17 in Western New York while the Chiefs disposed of the Steelers 42-21 at Arrowhead.

In the Wild Card round, the quarterback duo of Josh Allen and Patrick Mahomes combined for 712 passing yards and 10 passing touchdowns. It’s slated to be a fireworks show, just like the Rams - Bucs game before it. Buffalo clinched the AFC East for a second consecutive season and made the postseason for fourth time in past five years. That comes off about two decades of never making the playoffs.

The Chiefs, meanwhile clinched the AFC West for the sixth consecutive season. They’ll aim to become the fourth team to advance to four straight AFC Championship games since 1970.
