The Jacksonville Jaguars were down 27-0 to the Chargers before engineering an epic comeback in their Wild Card game last Saturday. They now must travel to Arrowhead Stadium and take on the Kansas City Chiefs, who enjoyed a first-round bye last weekend. Can Trevor Lawrence and the upstart Jaguars continue their playoff run against Patrick Mahomes and the high-flying Chiefs? This divisional round game kicks off in Kansas City on Saturday at 4:30 p.m. ET (3:30 p.m. CT, 1:30 p.m. PT) on NBC and Peacock.
