The NFL Playoffs are into the divisional round of the postseason and after a literally wild wildcard weekend, the matchups are set in the AFC and NFC and the games start up on various channels on FOX and CBS on Saturday and Sunday this weekend and the teams involved include the San Francisco 49ers, Carolina Panthers, Seattle Seahawks, Denver Broncos, Colts, New Orleans Saints, San Diego Chargers and New England Patriots.
The divisional round playoffs start up on Saturday, January 11 with the Seattle Seahawks hosting the New Orleans Saints at CenturyLink Field and it will be for the second time this season and that game will be on FOX starting up at 4:35 pm in the early game. The matchup comes after the Saints lost in Seattle in tough fashion earlier in the season and now they will play again and this is the one seed against the six seed after the Saints won over the Eagles.
The second game on the schedule has the Indianapolis Colts visiting the New England Patriots and that game will be at Gillette Stadium and will be airing on CBS starting up at 8:15 pm and is the first AFC divisional game of the weekend. The Sunday schedule picks up at the usually NFL start time with the San Francisco 49ers visiting the Carolina Panthers and that game is a rematch as well after the two teams played in the Bay area and now the Panthers will try and win again at home. The game features two great young QBs in Colin Kaepernick and Cam Newton and it could be a great matchup.
The San Diego Chargers and the Denver Broncos play in Colorado just weeks after the Chargers won there and that could be a huge upset after San Diego came into Cincy and won against the number three seed in the Bengals.
The wild card schedule saw some amazing games on Saturday, as the Indianapolis Colts came back to defeat the Kansas City Chiefs after being down 28 points and now they will travel to play Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. The game was a four-five seed game after the Colts won the AFC South and the Chiefs won the wild card spot and after taking a big lead, the team couldn't keep things up and now Andrew Luck gets the chance to face off against Tom Brady. Luck was fantastic while bringing his team back and he passed for 443 yards in the game, while TY Hilton ended up finishing with 224 yards in the game and he also factored in with the winning touchdown.
The second game on the Saturday schedule was just as exciting, as the New Orleans Saints won their first road game in franchise history against the Philadelphia Eagles and the team won with a last second field goal. The games on Sunday were great as well, with the San Diego Chargers beating the Bengals and the 49ers taking down the Packers in Green Bay and now the team moves on to play the Panthers.
