The NFL playoffs have arrived, and the objective is simple.

Win or go home.

Super Bowl 57 is on the horizon but only two teams will punch their ticket. It takes three wins to secure the exclusive invitation. This weekend, 12 teams begin their postseason slate during “Super Wild Card Weekend.”

Each team will face an opponent they have already played this season.

An NFC West rivalry was renewed on Saturday afternoon. The San Francisco 49ers beat the Seattle Seahawks for the third time this season, while the Jacksonville Jaguars pulled off the third-largest postseason comeback in NFL history against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Sunday will feature two other divisional matchups. The Buffalo Bills will host the Miami Dolphins in the early slate. Meanwhile, the Baltimore Ravens and Cincinnati Bengals are set to renew their AFC North rivalry in prime time.

The remaining matchups feature teams looking for retribution. The Dallas Cowboys and Baltimore Ravens hope to pull off a road upset. Can the Cowboys spoil another Tom Brady playoff run?

Brock Purdy led San Francisco’s high-powered offense with four total touchdowns and 332 passing yards. Christian McCaffrey added 136 total yards and was on the receiving end of one of the scores. Despite the loss, Seahawks receiver D.K. Metcalf had 10 receptions for 136 yards and caught both of Geno Smith’s touchdown passes. The San Francisco defense quieted them in the second half, led by 11 tackles from Dre Greenlaw and two sacks from Charles Omenihu.

One highlight to know: With 2:31 left in the third quarter and the 49ers up 23-17, the pocket collapsed around Smith and Omenihu sacked him. The quarterback lost hold of the football in the frenzy and NFL sack leader Nick Bosa jumped on the ball for the fumble recovery. The play squashed any momentum the Seahawks had.

Next up: The 49ers move on to the divisional round and will host the Minnesota Vikings, Tampa Bay Buccaneers or Dallas Cowboys. The Seahawks’ season is over.
