Joe Flint of Wall Avenue Journal broke the information on Friday, two days earlier than the Tremendous Bowl between the Kansas Metropolis Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers.

The Chiefs notably performed within the first-ever NFL playoff recreation solely featured on a streaming service (NBCUniversal’s Peacock) after they took down the Miami Dolphins 26-7 within the AFC Wild Card spherical to start this 12 months’s postseason run.

NBCUniversal paid a minimum of $110 million for the unique rights to that recreation. Per Flint, they had been within the combine to be the house for an additional postseason matchup subsequent 12 months, but it surely’ll be Amazon who will get it in 2024.
