Hey, get a peek at the NFC’s 3-6 matchup. I’d like to stand pat with these matchups.
The National Guard will be on speed dial for Lambeau Field.
In other news, we’ve extended the view to the AFC/NFC divisional round window.
#1 – Houston Texans (AFC South champion, bye)
#2 – Baltimore Ravens (AFC North champion, bye)
#3 – New England Patriots (AFC East champion)
#4 – Denver Broncos (AFC West champion)
#5 – Indianapolis Colts (Wild Card)
#6 – Pittsburgh Steelers (Wild Card)
#1 – Atlanta Falcons (NFC South champion, bye)

#3 – Green Bay Packers (NFC North champion)

PROPOSED, FICTIONAL TV SCHEDULE
SATURDAY, JANUARY 12 @ 4:30PM – #6 Seattle Seahawks at #3 Green Bay Packers (NBC)*
SATURDAY, JANUARY 12 @ 8:00PM – #5 Indianapolis Colts at #4 Denver Broncos (NBC)
SUNDAY, JANUARY 13 @ 1:00PM – #6 Pittsburgh Steelers at #3 NE Patriots (CBS)
SUNDAY, JANUARY 13 @ 4:30PM – #5 Chicago Bears at #4 New York Giants (FOX)
*Also known as the “Brad Nessler Game.”
DIVISIONAL PLAYOFF ROUND:
SATURDAY, JANUARY 19 @ 4:30PM – DEN/HOU/PITT at #1 Houston (CBS)
SATURDAY, JANUARY 19 @ 8PM – GB/NYG/CHI at #2 San Francisco (FOX)
SUNDAY, JANUARY 20 @ 1PM – NYG/CHI/SEA at #1 Atlanta (FOX)
SUNDAY, JANUARY 20 @ 4:30PM – NE/DEN/IND at #2 Baltimore (CBS)
As for the divisional round schedule, CBS should have the late Sunday game, which is typically the perceived best potential game.
Over the years, the Sunday late game normally yields the weekend’s most compelling game.
Five of the last six years, the road team has won the divisional round weekend’s final game.
Don’t worry. There will be a post on this come January to explain that nonsense.
