“We are thrilled to be a part of the NFL’s international initiatives once again, and we are excited to face the Rams at historic Estadio Azteca this fall,” Chiefs chairman and CEO Clark Hunt said in January’s statement. “The support for the NFL in Mexico has grown significantly since our initial trip in 1996. We look forward to returning to Mexico and connecting with a new generation of fans this season.”

The announcement comes after last week’s unveiling of the 2018 preseason schedule.

Panthers preseason schedule 2018

The Panthers will host the New England Patriots and the Miami Dolphins and will travel to the Steelers, marking the 21st time Carolina has faced a team in the regular season after facing the same team in the preseason.

The Carolina Panthers will travel to Pittsburgh in the regular season for the Steelers and the Buffalo Bills at the Ralph Wilson Stadium for their first preseason game, as three of the four preseason games are versus teams that made the NFL playoffs last season. The AFC as the Panthers open at Buffalo (Aug. 9-13) before hosting Miami (Aug. 16-20) then New England (Aug. 23-26), then wrapping up the preseason at Pittsburgh Thursday, Aug. 30.

The Carolina Panthers are 45-48 all-time in preseason games in NFL history, finishing at least .500 in the preseason in each of the franchise’s eight playoff seasons. The Panthers have gone at least .500 every preseason since 2012.

AFC & NFC Conference Championship Schedule 2018, Time, Date

The New England Patriots are only one win away in the seventh consecutive AFC Championship game from playing in Super Bowl 52 at U.S. Bank Stadium, Minnesota.

The Philadelphia Eagles are in the NFC Conference Championship game for the first time since the 2008 season where they will most likely be underdogs again. The Philadelphia will be playing in the 2018 NFC Championship game between the winner of today’s Vikings vs Saints matchup.

In the AFC, the Jacksonville Jaguars are eliminating the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night by 45-42 and will be playing in their AFC Championship game next Sunday at Gillette Stadium.

The long-suffering Minnesota will take advantage of their home field and defeated the Saints by Vikings 29, Saints 24 in the divisional playoff round and will beat the Eagles in the NFC Championship Game at Lincoln Financial Field next Sunday, January 21, to earn their chance to play the Super Bowl on their home field.

This time, it’s the Minnesota Vikings with the better defense, and that unit coupled with the Minnesota’s home-field advantage, will lead the way to the franchise’s first Super Bowl victory.

Here’s the complete schedule for the upcoming AFC & NFC Conference Championship weekend.

NFL Playoffs 2018: AFC, NFC Schedule time, date and TV info

The end of Week 17 in the NFL closed out the remaining playoff spots, and the first round byes and the first round pairing is now set. Here is the overall picture and how each team earned their playoff berth.

AFC playoff picture

Top Seed – New England clinched the home field advantage throughout the playoffs by beating the Jets 26 – 6.

2nd Seed – The Steelers earned a first round bye in handing Cleveland their 16th consecutive loss of the season, 28 – 24.

When the Patriots overcame the Steelers in Week 15 to win, the tiebreaker advantage (head to head record) went to New England, so should the two meet in the AFC Championship game it will be played in New England.

3rd Seed – Jacksonville grabbed the 3rd spot having already won the AFC South division in Week 15 by trouncing the Texans 45 – 3 and the Titans losing 25 – 23 to the 49ers.

4th Seed – Kansas City won the AFC West two weeks ago with a 30-13 defeat of rival San Diego and the Raiders losing to the Cowboys in Week 15.

5th Seed – The Tennessee Titans earned one of the two remaining AFC playoff spots by rolling over rival Jacksonville in Week 17, 15 – 10. All they had to do to secure a playoff spot was to win because they had the better conference record between Buffalo, Baltimore, and the Chargers.

6th Seed – The Buffalo Bills make their first playoff appearance since 1999. They needed some help from Cincinnati who faced the Ravens. If the Ravens win, they were in. But the Bengals thumped Baltimore in the last minute, winning 31 – 27. Combined with Buffalo’s 22 – 16 victory over Miami, they move in based on the tiebreaker of common opponent.

NFC playoff picture

Top Seed – The Philadelphia Eagles secured the top seed and the NFC East when defeating the Oakland Raiders on Christmas Day, 19 – 10.

2nd Seed – Minnesota was challenging for the Top Seed but locked up the second spot and a first round bye by winning its last 3 games. They lost on the head-to-head tiebreaker for the Top Seed by losing to the Panthers in Week 14.

3rd Seed – The Los Angeles Rams locked up the 3rd Seed by drubbing rival Seattle two weeks ago to win the NFC West.

4th Seed – With its Week 16 win over the Falcons, New Orleans locked up the NFC South over Carolina with a better conference record.

5th Seed – Carolina lost the division on tiebreakers with New Orleans, and though they had a tiebreaker advantage over the Rams, the fact that the Rams won their division pushed the Panthers into the 5 Seed.

6th Seed – The Atlanta Falcons edged into the playoffs with a 22 – 10 Week 17 victory over Carolina. Their playoff situation was the simplest of all the wild card teams – win and they’re in, having a one game advantage over the Detroit Lions.

If you’re looking for Super Bowl experience, there’s plenty of that, too. The playoffs will feature a total of four quarterbacks — Tom Brady, Ben Roethlisberger and Drew Brees — who have won at least one Super Bowl. Combined with Newton and Ryan, that means nearly half the teams in the playoffs will have a starting quarterback with Super Bowl experience.

Take a look at the NFL postseason schedule which you are looking for.
