NFL Playoffs Schedule, Tickets and TV Channels 2023

After eighteen weeks of wild NFL matchups, the 2022-2023 regular season has ended, meaning it’s time for the long-awaited playoffs.

How do the NFL playoffs work?

There are two conferences in the NFL – the American Football Conference (AFC) and the National Football Conference (NFC). The NFL postseason includes seven teams from each conference for a total of 14 teams, including four division winners in each conference and three wild cards. The adjustment from a 12 to 14-team playoff began before the 2020 season and allows one extra wild-card game to take place between the No. 2 and No.7 seeds. 

The NFL playoffs feature two brackets with seven teams on each side. The bracket is strategically formulated to lead into the Super Bowl. There are six wildcard games, four divisional and two conference championship games that contribute to determining which teams will face off at the Super Bowl for the championship title. 

Here’s a breakdown of the 2023 NFL playoff schedule:

  • Wild Card Round: January 14th – January 16th, 2023

  • Divisional Round: January 21st and January 22nd, 2023

  • Conference Championships: January 29th, 2023

  • Super Bowl: February 12th, 2023

How much do NFL Playoff tickets cost?

NFL playoff game tickets range in price, but on average, are around $270.00. A number of factors determine the price of NFL playoff game tickets, including the location of the game, the teams playing the game, and the weather.

For example, championship games, whether they be AFC or NFC, are likely to be more expensive than Wild Card round games.

How to get NFL Playoff tickets?

The home team’s season ticket holders receive the majority of NFL Playoff tickets, much like the regular season. The exception, of course, being the Super Bowl. Unfortunately, for football fanatics that are not season ticket holders, this makes attending the more exciting games of the season more challenging.

Thankfully, fans have the opportunity to purchase seats for NFL playoffs through the secondary ticket market. SeatGeek is a great place to find NFL playoff tickets.
