Patriots Playoff Times Announced, Patriots Will Next Play On Prime TimeDavid Butler III - USA TODAY Sports

There won’t be any football played next weekend at Gilette Stadium, but after a crazy weekend, we do have a time and date of when the Patriots will play next.

According to ESPN’s Mike Reiss, the Patriots will play their first playoff game on Saturday, January 13th at 8:15pm ET in the AFC Divisional round, beginning their playoff journey in prime time in a Saturday night game at Gillette Stadium.  The Patriots and Steelers are on a bye next week, which will see two big battles between four teams vying for an opportunity to face them.

Squaring off in the AFC next weekend will be the Bills and Jaguars, with Buffalo getting in thanks to a loss by the Ravens on Sunday.  The Bills will head to Jacksonville to take on the 3rd seed Jaguars, while the 5th seed Titans will head to Kansas City to take on the 4th seed Chiefs.

The Patriots will face the lowest remaining seed from that round, while the 2nd seed Steelers will have a home game and will face the top surviving seed from each of those games.

Should New England advance, the AFC Championship game is scheduled for Sunday, January 21st at 3:05pm ET and would take place at Gillette Stadium.
