The 2011 NFL Playoff Schedule has been released by the NFL along with FOX, NBC and CBS. Every year there are usually some teams that seems to get the short end of the stick as far as scheduling goes, but this year it doesn’t seem as though that has happened to anyone. Here is the NFL Playoff Schedule & TV Schedule for Wild Card Weekend:
Saturday, January 8th
- New Orleans Saints AT Seattle Seahawks – 4:30 PM ET on NBC
This is one of the more interesting games, simply because the (11-5) New Orleans Saints will have to travel to play the (7-9) Seattle Seahawks. This game looks be be heavily one sided in favor last year’s Super Bowl Champion Saints. However, with the game being played in Seattle, anything can happen.
- New York Jets AT Indianapolis Colts – 8:00 PM ET on NBC
This is another game in which the team with the better record (NY Jets) will have to play on the road. The Jets, who are (11-5) on the season will travel to Indianapolis to play the (10-6) Colts. This game could go either way. The Jets were (6-2) on the road during the regular season, while the Colts were (6-2) at home.
Sunday, January 9th
- Baltimore Ravens AT Kansas City Chiefs – 1:00 PM ET on CBS
Once again, a game in which the team with the better record will have to travel. The Ravens who were (12-4) during the regular season, and barely missed winning their division, will have to travel to Kansas City to play the (10-6) Chiefs. This game may actually favor the Chiefs who are (7-1) at home, while the Ravens were only (5-3) on the road.
- Green Bay Packers AT Philadelphia Eagles – 4:30 PM ET on FOX
Green Bay will travel to Philadelphia to face an Eagles team coming off 2 consecutive losses. While the Packers had to fight hard up until the 4th quarter of the regular season, the Eagles got to rest their starters in their final game against the Dallas Cowboys. The Packers defeated the Eagles 27-20 in week 1 of the regular season. However that was a game which was started by QB Kevin Kolb, who went down with an injury. Philadelphia was only (4-4) at home this season, while the Packers were (3-5) on the road. Expect a high scoring game that slightly favors the Packers.
- New Orleans Saints AT Seattle Seahawks – New Orleans 34 – Seattle 17
- New York Jets AT Indianapolis Colts – Indianapolis 28 – New York Jets 21
- Baltimore Ravens AT Kansas City Chiefs – Baltimore 17 – Kansas City 14
- Green Bay Packers AT Philadelphia Eagles – Green Bay 30 Philadelphia 24 –
