The Los Angeles Rams’ playoff journey begins on Monday night when they host the division-rival Arizona Cardinals in the wild card round.
This marks the first Monday Night Football playoff game in NFL history, but with the Rams having to wait until now to play, all of the other wild card games have been decided.
On the NFC side of things, the No. 2 seed Tampa Bay Buccaneers took care of business against the Philadelphia Eagles, while the No. 6 seed San Francisco 49ers upset the No. 3 seed Dallas Cowboys.
With all of the games being decided expect Rams-Cardinals, the NFL has already released the full schedule for the divisional round, via Adam Schefter of ESPN:

If the Rams are able to advance then they will travel to take on the Buccaneers on Sunday at 12 p.m. PT, while the 49ers will travel to take on the Green Bay Packers on Saturday night in the other matchup.
The Rams have already played the Buccaneers this season, hosting them all the way back in Week 3 and coming away with one of their biggest wins of the season.
As has been the case for the last 20-plus years though, Tom Brady is taking things to another level in the postseason, so playing the Buccaneers on the road with a chance to make the NFC Championship Game will be no easy task.
The Rams cannot get ahead of themselves though as they must first take care of business against the Cardinals or else their season will come to a disappointing end on Monday night.
