    This is a no-brainer. The Pats will play Saturday night and the Colts Sunday afternoon. The Packers will play Saturday afternoon and the Cowboys Sunday.

    If they put an Indy-Pitt or Indy-SD matchup on Sunday at 4:30pm this will be a huge benefit to the Pats.

    Wouldn't it be nice if home field advantage came with a choice of day and time slot?

    I don't think 3 hours would equate to a huge benefit. It's not like they are playing on Monday. But, if I had to guess, I would think FOX would have the late Sunday game if NBC has the Saturday night game.

    But they are playing a day LATER than the Pats, and would have to travel, and play a 3pm game in Foxboro. That's all good for the Pats IMO.

    And I could see a Dallas-Seattle or Dallas-TB matchup moved up to 1pm if it's Indy-Pitt or Indy-SD.

    I prefer Satrurday afternoon for the Pats, but expect Saturday night. This is good -- less waiting for me. Plus, they will be coming off a bye and playing the next week, so the extra day is good.

    Can't happen unless they switch to the NFC.

    Didn't you read the link you posted? NBC has the first day of wildcards and is then done. Saturday 8PM is CBS, which is why people think it will be the Patriots. They could show the Indy game Saturday if they are afraid of the cold at night, but that hasn't bothered them before.

    Since CBS has the late Saturday game it will probably have the early Sunday game, to spread the ratings around. I am surprised they have left the times on Sunday open, maybe there's something going on there we don't understand.

    We'll definately have Saturday night...

    Remember the Colts don't get primetime home games because they destroy everyone and are God's gift to football. I know this because Polian said so.

    That must be the only reason we beat them, playing at 4:15 instead of 8:15 :D

    This is huge for the AFC.

    The AFCCG is before the NFCCG, so the NFC only gets two weeks rest and the AFC gets 2 weeks and three hours. By the fourth quarter this extra rest will be apparent and will be the difference in the game.

    Any time on Saturday is exactly what I need. Saturday night would be best for my viewing!

    Looks like they changed after I posted it. I guess someone caught it after the fact.
