Written By Matt Burke on January 14, 2022

The Buffalo Bills are playing postseason football for the third straight season. After losing to the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC title game last year, the next step for Josh Allen and company is to get the Bills back to the Super Bowl for the first time in 28 years. This year’s Bills playoff journey will once again begin during Super Wild Card weekend. Games are slated for Saturday and Sunday. In addition, there will be one Monday night Wild Card game played for the first time in league history. Here we will answer the question as to what time does the Bills Wild Card playoff game start, as soon as the schedule is announced.

What time does Bills Wild Card playoff game start, end?

Searching for what time does the Bills Wild Card playoff game start? Well, you have come to the right place as Buffalo will host the New England Patriots on Saturday, January 15 at 8:15 p.m. ET.
