NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - With the Saints missing the NFL playoffs for the first time since 2016, many Louisiana football fans are gravitating toward the Cincinnati Bengals, where former LSU stars Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase are maintaining their postseason interest.

Those dynamic young stars led Cincinnati to a 26-19 victory over the Las Vegas Raiders in a wild-card round nail-biter on Saturday afternoon. The victory snapped a 31-year drought since the franchise’s last playoff victory. And now the Bengals have again drawn the Saturday afternoon timeslot for next weekend in the league’s Divisional Round schedule announced late Sunday night.

Here are the games, kickoff times and networks for next weekend’s playoff games, pending the result of tonight’s Cardinals-Rams matchup in the first Monday Night Football wild-card game:
