The NFL playoffs start with two AFC matchups on Saturday. The fifth seed, 11-6 Cleveland Browns, travel to the fourth seed, 10-7 AFC South Champion Houston Texans, for the 4:30 ET game. These two teams are closely linked through the DeShaun Watson trade; Watson is injured, and veteran QB Joe Flacco will face star rookie CJ Stroud.

The two teams squared off in Week 16 on Christmas Eve, and the Browns earned the road victory by a score of 36-22. Stroud did not play in the game. Here is the injury report for the first game:

The 8:15 ET game is the 11-6 AFC West Champion Kansas City Chiefs hosting the sixth-seed 11-6 Miami Dolphins, who lost their Sunday Night Football matchup for the AFC East title - and the second-seed in the conference - 21-14 last week. 21-14 was also the score of these team’s Week 9 game, where Miami fell in Kansas City to Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs.

The Saturday night game will be exclusively shown on Peacock - which is a subscription service - unless you’re located in the Kansas City or Miami market, where they will broadcast the games on their respective NBC stations.

This is the first NFL playoff game to be broadcast exclusively on a streaming service
