Your NFL Playoff Schedule For Today

It's playoff time in the National Football League, and even though the Vikings aren't involved in this year's post-season festivities, I'm guessing that a lot of you folks will be watching anyway. But where can you see all the action and when? Well, let us give you the rundown.

3:30 PM Central on NBC - New Orleans Saints at Seattle Seahawks

↵

The Seahawks have pretty much been given the title of "worst playoff team ever," and for good reason. . .after all, they are the first team with a losing record to win an NFL division and make their way to the post-season tournament. Then again, before now the title of "worst playoff team ever" may have belonged to the 2004 Minnesota Vikings, who backed into the playoffs with an 8-8 record. Like those 2004 Vikings, the Seahawks aren't being given a snowball's chance in Cuba of winning this football game. Can the Seahawks, also like those 2004 Vikings, pull off what would be considered to be a pretty sizable upset?

7:00 PM Central on NBC - New York Jets at Indianapolis Colts

↵

A rematch of last year's AFC Championship Game, this one pits the Jets. . .the ones that started talking in about July about their greatness and haven't stopped since. . .against Mr. Consistent, Peyton Manning, and the Indianapolis Colts. Manning once again has the Indianapolis offense clicking, despite playing with guys that, for all we know, could have been sitting in the stands of Lucas Oil Stadium when this season started. Manning is 5-1 against Rex Ryan teams over his career, and the Colts have been very good this year at home. Will the Jets finally be able to back up their braggadocio, or will Manning lead his team to a victory and a potential re-match with Tom Brady and the Patriots in the divisional round?

Those are today's games. . .we'll come back tomorrow with a brief look at tomorrow's action.
