I am going with Saturday night.
Hope sat afternoon, travelling on Sunday.
I am hoping for Sunday (I wish we would find out soon.) I am hoping to make plans for a Saturday trip to NYC. I can't go to NYC if the game is on Saturday.
I'd love a Saturday night primetime game, but something tells me that would most likely go to a Bengals/Steelers possible matchup.
My guess that the Giants will play the prime time game. I say the Pats go Saturday afternoon which will be fine with me.
The least desirable time. It's the least interesting nationally of all the potential wild card games (not to us, of course).
I think I saw an ABC promo during MNF talking about how they would carry both AFC games on Saturday the 7th.
I'm fairly sure that the Pats will either have to play the Saturday or Sunday 4 PM slot. Last year's wild-card weekend was an NFC game at 4 on Saturday (Seahawks/Rams), an AFC game at 8 (Jets/Chargers), an AFC Game at 1 Sunday (Broncos/Colts) and an NFC Game at 4 (Packers/Vikings), and these alternate yearly. So this year's wild card weekend will be AFC-NFC-NFC-AFC, the divisional round will be NFC-AFC-AFC-NFC (opposite of last year), and the conf. championships will be AFC-NFC

If the Pats make it to the AFC title game I dodged a bullet. I'm at a wedding on the 21st! Man that would have sucked..
Those MSNBC dates, if correct, would suck, only because it would mean two straight short weeks (Jets-Miami, Miami-Jax).
There has been a Sat night game in recent years but never a Sunday night game. The Championship game and Super Bowl have a 6 start. In the first two rounds it has always been 12:30 and 4 on Sunday. I doubt with Monday not being a holiday there would be a Sunday night game in the WC round.
We will be 1 feature game and the Giants the other meaning either 8 on Sat or 4 on Sunday.
Separate names with a comma.
