NFL Adds Monday Night Playoff Game To Wild Card Weekend
BOSTON (CBS) — A major change is coming to the NFL postseason.
The league announced that a Monday night game has been added to Wild Card Weekend, expanding upon what was deemed “Super Wild Card Weekend” a year ago.
Last year, the new format included three wild card teams in each conference, with just one team getting a first-round bye. That setup led to three games being played on Saturday and three games being played on Sunday of Wild Card Weekend.
Now, Saturday will feature two games (4:35 p.m. ET and 8:15 p.m.), Sunday will still have three games (1:05 p.m., 4:40 p.m., 8:15 p.m.), and Monday will have the night game at 8:15 p.m. to close out the weekend.
The setup and the broadcasting networks for each game remain yet to be deterined.
