Normally, football on a Saturday means it's the playoffs! But football has been played on all sorts of weird days this season as The Shield has struggled to pretend everything is fine while playing games through a mismanaged global pandemic. Rest assured, though, it is playoff time! Promise!

Some football will happen today. It may or may not be good. The end results may or may not make sense. But whatever happens, you can yak about in the comments. Wear a mask! Stay safe!
