The Baltimore Ravens will host the Tennessee Titans in the Divisional Round. The Titans pulled off the upset of the Patriots at Foxborough. The Titans-Ravens kickoff on Saturday, January 11th at 8:15 p.m. Eastern on CBS – the first day of the Divisional Round.
A Patriots victory would have meant the Ravens would face the Texans in the Divisional Round. The NFL bracket reseeds after the Wild Card round to ensure the top seed plays the highest remaining seed, which is a fancy way of saying the postseason is designed so the No. 1 seeds get the most favorable matchups in the Divisional Round.
Heading into Wild Card Weekend, the Ravens’ possible opponents included the Bills, Texans and Titans. Baltimore faced Buffalo on December 8 and came away with a 24-17 victory, but the Texans eliminated the Bills from the postseason. Baltimore dominated the Texans 41-7 back in November.

“That game still motivates me,” Jackson said, per ESPN. “I still haven’t played my second playoff game yet. … That game is over with. We’ve been having a great year this year. We just got to keep it going. I want a Super Bowl. I’m not worried about that. That was my rookie season.”
