NFL Wildcard Weekend has arrived and the 2024 NFL Playoffs schedule kicks off with an AFC matchup between the Cleveland Browns and the Houston Texans.
Live from NRG Stadium in Houston, cord cutters can stream the game with Peacock in what is expected to be an exciting matchup. The 10-7 Texans won the AFC South behind the explosiveness of rookie phenom QB C.J. Stroud. At the same position, the 11-6 Brown have experienced a carousel with four different starters, but veteran Joe Flacco, who is 38, has given Cleveland a reason to believe.
