The National Football League announced Sunday night the dates and times for the Divisional Round playoff games next weekend, and the Buffalo Bills will host the Baltimore Ravens on Saturday, Jan. 16 at 8:15 p.m. EST on NBC.
The Bills defeated the Indianapolis Colts, 27-24, on Saturday to win their first playoff game since the 1995 season advance to the second round. Buffalo will now host a Divisional Round playoff game in Orchard Park for the first time since the 1993 season, the last time the Bills made a run to the Super Bowl.
The Ravens will make the trip to Bills Stadium next weekend after defeating the Tennessee Titans on Sunday afternoon, 20-13 in Nashville. However, it was the late game on Sunday night that punched Baltimore's ticket to Buffalo after the sixth-seeded Cleveland Browns knocked off the three-seeded Pittsburgh Steelers, 48-37 at Heinz Field.
The Browns will next have a date with the Kansas City Chiefs, who hold on to the No. 1 seed in the AFC.
It will be the first time the Bills and Ravens have ever matched up against one another in the NFL Playoffs on Saturday.
The last time the Bills played the Ravens happened to be in the 2019 season in Orchard Park when Lamar Jackson and Baltimore grabbed a 24-17 win in Week 14. Buffalo has lost its last three games against the Ravens dating back to 2016, with the last win coming in the 2013 season.
Since entering the league in the 1996 season, the Ravens lead the all-time series against the Bills in nine games, 6-3.
The Bills-Ravens matchup will be the second game of the day on Saturday. The first playoff matchup will be the Los Angeles Rams taking on the No. 1 seed in the NFC, the Green Bay Packers. That contest will kick off on Saturday afternoon at 4:35 p.m. EST.
Sunday's action will see the Chiefs and Browns squaring off in Kansas City at 3:05 p.m. EST, followed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers taking on the New Orleans Saints for a third time in the 2020 season at 6:40 p.m. EST.
