The final weekend of the NFL regular season begins Saturday with two games that will somehow affect the playoff picture.

Saturday’s doubleheader leads into a full slate of Sunday games that will wrap up the regular season.

What time are NFL games on Saturday?

Saturday’s slate of games is an ESPN doubleheader, with games also airing on ABC. Cord cutters can stream the games on fuboTV, which offers a free trial.

Chiefs vs. Raiders

  • To start up: 4:30 p.m. ET
  • Television (national): ESPN, ABC
  • Direct: ESPN app, fuboTV

The Chiefs might be able to secure the AFC No. 1 seed and a first-round bye with a victory over the Raiders on Saturday. If the suspended Week 17 game between the Bills and Bengals is entirely erased from the schedule, Kansas City would enter Week 18 leading Buffalo by a half game.

A first-round bye would mean the Chiefs would be just one divisional round victory away from hosting the AFC Championship game for the fifth consecutive year.

The Raiders are knocked out of the playoffs but showed a serious fight in an overtime loss to the 49ers in Week 17 with Jarrett Stidham under center.

Titans vs. Jaguars

  • To start up: 8:15 p.m. ET
  • Television (national): ESPN, ABC
  • Direct: ESPN app, fuboTV

The Titans and Jaguars are set to play for the AFC South crown on Saturday night.

The two teams couldn’t be headed in more different directions, as Tennessee has lost six straight and is up to Josh Dobbs at quarterback. Jacksonville, meanwhile, looked like a team that can win a playoff game.

The Jaguars climbed to the top of the division behind Trevor Lawrence’s breakout season and can seal their first playoff spot since 2017 with a home win in the spotlight.
