    Obviously it depends on the actually matchups, but given the possibilities for matchups, here are the matchups that would most likely end up as the Saturday Night Wild Card Weekend Matchup (in order)

    1.) Green Bay Packers at Minnesota Vikings (hands down)


    2.) Dallas Cowboys at Philadelphia Eagles
    3.) Dallas Cowboys at Minnesota Vikings
    4.) Pittsburgh Steelers at New England Patriots
    5.) Baltimore Ravens at New England Patriots

    Ouch

    I really want the Vikings to win a SB if the Pats can't pull it off but I just don't see them beating the Pack a third time. Especially with their current struggles

    Isn't it more likely that Dallas would win the NFC East?

    True, but it's not likely; about the only scenario that could produce that result is if the Giants beat the Vikings and the Cardinals beat the Packers.

    I don't think the Vikings can play the Packers in the first round. It's like the Pats v Jets possibility, I think it's nearly impossible.

    That's what they tell you about winning the lottery

    Yet every week or so some new ******* walks away with boat loads of money that should have been mine

    Nearly impossible doesn't mean it won't happen. The networks and the NFL are probably salivating at the possibilities of one of the biggest football rivalries taking place in the playoffs

    Especially with all the Favre drama

    True, but Green Bay beating Arizona renders it impossible, as it simultaneously clinches the 5 seed for Green Bay and at least the 3 seed for Minnesota.

    I just looked at it again and it's not as hard as I thought. If the Giants, Philly, and Cards all win the Packers play the Vikings.

    Hard to say right now given the multitude of potential playoff games, but I would say Packers-Vikings would have to be the networks' first choice if it's available. After that I'd guess they'd want Pats-Steelers, Vikings-anybody, Pats-anybody, and Cowboys-anybody - though Dallas may be higher on that list considering the number of times they were either a 4:00 or primetime game this year.

    I want to play Sunday @ 1 PM.

    I hope that there is a great NFC matchup for Saturday prime time.

    Same

    Sunday would be ideal as I will be rid of my GFs family and can spend my time in an unfamiliar Orlando sports bar

    I just hope it's not on Saturday afternoon. I just started a new job and next week I go on the Wednesday to Saturday shift. Not complaining, though. After being out of work for 9 months I'm just happy to be working again, much like the New England offense.
