Texans vs. Chiefs, NFL playoffs: How to watch, start time, live stream, TV info and more

The Kansas City Chiefs are rested and ready to host the Houston Texans in the Divisional Round of the NFL playoffs. Here’s everything you need to know.

The Houston Texans are coming into their 18th game of the season, including a game that almost went an extra quarter last week against the Buffalo Bills in an overtime win in the Wild Card round. The Chiefs spent that same day resting on a bye week handed to them by the Miami Dolphins after knocking the New England Patriots from the No. 2 spot in the AFC. Now these two teams will meet on Sunday for a chance to advance to the AFC Championship.

For the Texans, it’s going to require overcoming the long list of injuries and fatigue that have set in given the rigors of such a long season. For the Chiefs, they’ll have to shake off any rust and hope they can change the narrative from the last time these teams played. Houston bested Kansas City back in October, but the Chiefs were hardly healthy at the time.

If you’re missing any angles, we’ve got you covered, from weather to odds to storylines to follow. Check out the links below and read on for relevant information on how to watch or listen to Sunday’s broadcast.
