It’s Wild Card Weekend! The Jacksonville Jaguars (9-8) host the Los Angeles Chargers (10-7) at TIAA Bank Field on Saturday night. Kickoff is set for 8:15 p.m. Eastern Time and the game will be broadcast on NBC/Peacock.

The Jaguars are the 2022 AFC South champions and earned the No. 4 seed in the AFC, while the Chargers are the No. 5 seed in the conference.

This is Jacksonville’s first playoff appearance since January 2018 after the team won the AFC South during the 2017 regular season. Of course, Jacksonville made a run all the way to the AFC Championship Game that season, and was minutes away from advancing to the franchise’s first-ever Super Bowl, but it was not meant to be.

For the Chargers, this is Los Angeles’ first playoff appearance since January 2019 after a 12-4 campaign during the 2018 season.

The winner of tonight’s game advances to the Divisional round in the NFL playoffs. The Chargers enter the game as 2.5-point favorites and the over/under for the game is set at 46.5.

The Jaguars defeated the Chargers 38-10 at SoFi Stadium on Sept. 25.
