*Also known as the “Brad Nessler Game.”


SATURDAY, JANUARY 19 @ 4:30PM – DEN/HOU/PITT at #1 Houston (CBS)

SATURDAY, JANUARY 19 @ 8PM – CHI/NYG/GB at #2 San Francisco (FOX)

SUNDAY, JANUARY 20 @ 1PM – NYG/GB/SEA at #1 Atlanta (FOX)

SUNDAY, JANUARY 20 @ 4:30PM – NE/DEN/IND at #2 Baltimore (CBS)

In Monday’s edition of Peter King’s MMQB, he surmised that Indy/Denver would be the early game on Sunday. That’s wrong on a few accounts.

First off, the NFL is not going to start a playoff game at a site in this era locally at 11am. That’s crazy.

Secondly, NBC will tip cars over to get that Indy/Denver game on especially in light of the Giants fire-bombing Green Bay on Sunday night.

Sorry Peter, that’s not going to happen.
