The second day of Divisional Playoff Weekend in the National Football League gets started in the AFC, and with the Baltimore Ravens having been eliminated last night by the Tennessee Titans, it has some added significance.

To start things off on this Sunday, we’re heading to Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, where the Houston Texans will travel to take on the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Chiefs are the #2 seed in the AFC playoffs, which means they’re coming off of their bye week and should be ready to go for this one. The Texans, on the other hand, had to work overtime last Saturday to take down the Buffalo Bills on Wild Card Weekend. The Texans found themselves down 13-0 to the Bills at halftime and 16-0 late in the third quarter, but Deshaun Watson led a huge comeback and helped to engineer a 22-19 victory.

As we know that the Titans have punched their ticket to the AFC Championship Game, whichever of these teams win this game will host the Titans in that AFC Championship Game in the early game next Sunday. The Titans are the #6 seed in the AFC, meaning that they’re the lowest seed in the AFC and that next Sunday’s AFC Championship Game will be held at either Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City or Reliant Stadium in Houston.

Kickoff for this one is scheduled for 2:05 PM Central time, and the game will be shown on CBS.
