NFL Playoffs are set!

12 teams have qualified for the race to Super Bowl 50

Wild Card weekend kicks off Saturday with a pair of matchups in the AFC, as the AFC South Division champion Houston Texans will host the red-hot Kansas City Cheifs. In the primetime matchup the Pittsburgh Steelers will head to Cincinnati to take on the AFC North Division champion Bengals.

Saturday
Kansas City at Houston – 4:35pm on ESPN

Pittsburgh at Cincinnati – 8:15pm on CBS

 

Sunday the NFC field gets their chance to advance as the back to back NFC Champion Seattle Seahawks will have to go on the road to take on NFC North champion Minnesota Vikings. Green Bay will head to the nations capital to face the NFC East champion Washington Redskins

Sunday
Seattle at Minnesota – 1:05pm on NBC

Green Bay at Washington – 4:40pm on Fox

This is a rarity that both conferences have their own days, either this is a hiccup by the ever calculated NFL, or this is just a way to try to change things up.

For the NFLs sake, I just hope that they do not have the NFC teams play Sunday, then turn around only to have a Wild Card Round winner go on the road to play on Saturday.

  • I don’t agree with the seahawks at number 1, but this is easily the strongest year of 6 seeds. The Steelers and Seahawks have to be favored on the road against the Bengals and Vikings. Vikings just lost to the Seahawks by 31 points in week 13, and the Steelers won by 13 on the road against the Bengals in week 14.
