The NFL has officially released it's playoff schedule, and the Patriots are scheduled to play their divisional game at 4:30 PM ET on Sunday, January 16th. Their opponent will either be the Jets, Chiefs, or Ravens.
Should the Jets, the six seed, beat the Colts on Saturday night, the Patriots will be facing New York, as they will automatically be the lowest remaining seed in the AFC. However, should the Colts win their home match, the Patriots would then play the winner of the Ravens-Chiefs game, which is slated for 1:00 PM on Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium.
Should the Patriots win their divisional playoff game, they would host the winner of the other divisional game on Sunday, January 23rd at 6:30 PM ET.
