Fornthe first time ever, an NFL playoff game will take place on a Monday night, which will feature the Arizona Cardinals going to SoFi Stadium to play their division rivals, the Los Angeles Rams.

The Tennessee Titans and Green Bay Packers were each conference’s number one seed, so they have a bye week.

The defending Super Bowl Champions, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, will host the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.
