NFL announces playoff schedule | ProFootballTalk
Nice. I like the 4pm game.
Last game of the weekend.... good for us as we'll know how the Denver game turned out.
I hate the late Sunday game...there's been an upset in that slot six out of the last seven years.
Hate that time slot as well. Long wait and last time we played at that slot after a bye it didnt turn out that well.
Eh, I hate waiting for that slot of the divisional round. And I like playing on Saturday that weekend (if we had the bye) and getting the extra day between that game/the AFCC.
Not a huge deal though, I"m just happy to be one of the 4 teams that benefit from the bye.
Good. The rest of the conference can watch the Patriots take it to the, presumably, Texans. Let's get it on!
History means jack. Or as we in the financial world like to say: "Past performance does not guarantee future returns"
If we are destined to win or lose. The day/time slot is not a factor.
For the Pats it's one more day to rest.
Its a slight adv for denver. They are at home and they dont have to travel for a game next sunday and get an extra day off. Pats on the other hand will have to travel the following week if they win.
Of course that assumes Denver wins their divisional game, and we've seen Manning blow those games a few times (2005, 2007)
Anybody else have the feeling that Indy will play Denver?
Its almost destiny isnt it?
Also the team Denver faces round 2 will probably be tougher than any team they've been able to beat all year.
Yup. Emphasis on slight. No big deal either way.
Well they've already beaten Baltimore and Cincinnati. I hope it's Indy though, that would be great TV.
True but Bmore didn't have Ray and a few others IIRC. And Cincinatti is playing way better now than earlier in the season.
No doubt, Cincy is playing on a much higher level now. I would not be at all shocked if they take out Houston next weekend and we end up with Baltimore/Indy.
I get this feeling the Bengals are gonna go down there and beat them. Played there last year in the first round so they know the atmosphere. Houston has lost 3 of their last 4. Bengals D is a D that could give Schaub and Foster problems.
If it wasn't for that 1 point loss to Dallas, Bengals would have won their last 8 games and their lost before this 7 of 8 streak was against the Broncos which they actually had the lead in the 4th. Now most of the teams were bad teams, but the same could be said about the Broncos.
yeah, be nice to know if we can rest the starters.
IMO, time is irrelevant pretty much.
you could say each as 'an advantage'
-Sun 1pm is ideal for routine.
-Sat ideal for a possible extra day of rest
-late start is better for possible snow-type temperatures when at home.
= anytime is better than being a JESTER fan ..... :singing:
I'd be shocked if Cincy doesn't win. I think the Texans are officially cooked.
Yeah, I honestly can't put a winner on that game. Houston's playing terribly, but Cincy's playoff history can't be ignored. And Houston's got the home field so I really dunno.
It will indeed be great tv. But I'll rather see the Ravens playing the Broncos in their 1st game instead of the Colts. Baltimore will put up a better fight IMO. I could be wrong. What if Indy some how upsets Denver? That would be one of the biggest playoff upsets in recent memory. I wouldn't bank on that. Here's my predictions in the AFC playoffs. Baltimore beats Indy,Houston barely escapes Cincy (I won't be shocked if the Bengals pull off the upset).
I get the feeling Huston have lost a fair bit of self belief since we popped their balloon a month back.
I really don't want to face Baltimore. Regardless of how they've been playing they find a reason to get pi$$ed at us and play super hard.
I'll take Houston at home. Baltimore at home. I like Pats at home. Ravens upset on the road. Pats-Ravens II.
Pats by 11 over Green Bay in the Big Easy.
That is awesome news, I know that I'll have to work next saturday and can get the 13th off. It would of been a miracle to of gotten the 12th off.
Colts will upset the Ravens. Mark my words.
won't we be trying to win just as hard no matter how that game turns out?.
what's the logic there? That we'll fold our tents if we have to go to Denver? Or we'll play harder if we think we have a home AFCC game...s opposed to what?
I'll be in the minority and say I think this is not as great as others seem to think it is.
We'll be coming off a Bye, so playing on Saturday or Sunday in the Division round won't matter.
Getting the Saturday game also means that we might get our opponent traveling on a short week.
Assuming we win the Division round, it also means that we'll be playing the AFCCG on a shorter week and, most likely, have to travel to Denver.
All around, a Saturday start would have been a lot better.
Let's hope so. I want no part of Bernard Pollard against our team.
I don't think it's an upset as some people think it will be. Ravens have played awful lately, losing 4 of their last 5.
