SB Nation 2014 NFL Playoff Coverage

Besides the NFL playoff schedule itself, the big news to note in 2014 is that CBS and NBC are both offering a free live stream of each of their playoff games. NBC will stream both of its Wild Card match ups and CBS will stream all four of its playoff games. The lone FOX game this weekend will also be streamed by Fox Sports Go but you'll need to log in with your cable provider information.

The three teams who had trouble selling out their home playoff game (Green Bay Packers, Indianapolis Colts and Cincinnati Bengals) did sell enough tickets so those games will be televised in those local markets.

You can find all of our Chiefs-Colts coverage right here. All the nuts and bolts on how to watch the game are right here.
