NFL Playoff Schedule

Yesterday wrapped up the NFL regular season and if was any indicator of what the Playoffs will be like, we’re in for a wild ride.

Let’s start with the NFC. We already knew that the Seattle Seahawks, Carolina Panthers and the San Francisco 49ers were heading to the post season, all that was to be decided was final seeding. That left three spots up for grabs and it all came down to the final three games.

The two biggest games would determine the division champions for the East and North divisions. The Green Bay Packers managed to pull out a win against the Chicago Bears, thanks to the return of Aaron Rogers, and wrapped up the NFC North.

The other game was one most of you probably watched, our Dallas Cowboys vs. the Philadelphia Eagles. It seemed for a brief, shining moment that backup Kyle Orton would be able to push the Cowboys into the playoffs. He had a great game until the last couple minutes when he took a play strait out of Romo’s playbook and threw a game and season ending interception. Classic Cowboys. In the end it was the Eagles who walked away with a 24-22 victory and the NFC East title.

The final spot in the NFC playoff went to the New Orleans Saints, who beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 42-17 and knocked the Arizona Cardinals out of the playoffs with the win.

So here’s how the schedule for the NFC bracket looks.

NFC WILD-CARD ROUND

SATURDAY, JAN. 4, AND SUNDAY, JAN. 5

No.5 49ers at No.4 Packers, Sunday at 4:40 p.m. ET on FOX

NFC DIVISIONAL ROUND

NFC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME

SUNDAY, JAN. 19, time TBA

While the NFC playoff picture may have seemed a little confusing, the AFC only had one spot left for grabs when the final week rolled around. The Denver Broncos, New England Patriots, Cincinnati Bengals and the Indianapolis Colts had already won their divisions and the Kansas City Chiefs had locked down the first wildcard spot. So that left one seed up for grabs.

And that final seed went to the San Diego Chargers who pulled out a 27-24 overtime win against the Chiefs. Their win, paired with losses by Miami and Baltimore guaranteed them the second and final wildcard spot. So let’s check out the AFC Playoff schedule.

AFC WILD-CARD ROUND

SATURDAY, JAN. 4, AND SUNDAY, JAN. 5

No.5 Chiefs at No.4 Colts, Saturday Jan. 4 at 4:35 p.m. ET on NBC

No.6 Chargers at No.3 Bengals, Sunday Jan. 5 at 1:05 p.m. ET on CBS

AFC DIVISIONAL ROUND

So who are you picking to go all the way? I’ll put my money on the Broncos. You know Peyton wants that ring.
