It wasn’t easy, but the NFL managed to complete its regular season — with a few disruptions — during a devastating pandemic. Now it’s on to the playoffs.
The league has expanded the postseason to 14 games with one bye per conference, and the playoffs begin Saturday with what the NFL is calling “Super Wild-Card Weekend.”
Here’s a look at this weekend’s games, with capsules below.

The Colts vs Bills live stream features a much different Bills team than we have seen this millennium. Buffalo boasts a quarterback in the MVP conversation, a league leading wide receiver and an AFC East Championship.
After missing the playoffs last year, the Bills made one of the biggest splashes leading up to the 2020 season when they sent four draft picks to the Minnesota Vikings in exchange for WR Stefon Diggs. The move paid off in a huge way for Buffalo. Diggs went on to lead the NFL in receptions (127) and receiving yards (1,535) while setting franchise records in both categories in this season of NFL live streams.

The Bills’ receiver was not alone in rewriting the team’s record books this year. Quarterback Josh Allen threw for the most yards (4,544) and touchdowns (37) in team history, surpassing Hall of Famer Jim Kelly. Overall, Allen finished top 5 in the league in 5 major statistical categories including passer rating (107.3). Both Allen and Diggs will try to help the Bills to their first playoff victory since 1995. Diggs has been dealing with an oblique injury, but told reporters this week, “I’m fine.”
The Colts’ Jonathon Taylor finished his dominant rookie year in style last week rushing for 253 yards and two touchdowns in Indy’s playoff clinching win against the Jaguars. Taylor finished the season as the league’s 3rd leading rusher. If the Colts are going to stage an upset Saturday in Buffalo, they will need to give plenty of carries to Taylor who will be facing a bottom-tier Bills run defense that allows 4.6 yards per carry.
As Taylor makes his playoff debut, Colts quarterback, Phillip Rivers will be making his 12th postseason start. In his first year with the Colts, Rivers started every game, posting a passer rating of 97. Rivers is 5-6 in his playoff career. The (13-3) Bills are 6.5 point favorites against the (11-5) Colts. The Over/Under is set at 51.
