    Jax @ Pitt - Sat night
    Tenn/Clev @ SD - Sunday 4:30pm

    All signs point to a Saturday night game for the Pats!

    I was hoping Pitt/Jax would be Sunday as we're probably playing the winner of that game. Oh well :)

    NFC:

    Redskins at Seattle - 5pm Sat
    Giants at TB - 1pm Sun

    Looks like NE & GB will get the Saturday games. Indy, Dallas the Sunday games.

    How does the Wild Card schedule tell you anything about the Divisional Round schedule?

    Good question. I'm guessing that the league may try to avoid having a team play 6 days later but is there actually a policy or track record supporting this?

    I thought it was all driven by TV ratings and network preferences.

    Don't handicap any team with a short week.
    Saturday vs Saturday ... Sun vs Sun.

    Well that doesn't happen if the Chargers are upset by the Titans or Browns which is why BF said "probably"

    I think Tenn will beat Indy and will also beat San Diego.. Which would set up a Tenn vs Pats match up..

    If we play Saturday night it would be AWESOME to have Tennessee/Cle have to go to SD for a Sunday game, fly back late then head out to NE for a Saturday game. I'll be rooting big time for Tennessee/Cle next week.

    We play the lowest advancing seeded team.

    If Tennessee or Cleveland beats SD then that's the team we play.

    Which is why i pointed out that the league

    figures the probabilities
    when it makes up playoff scheds.

    Right.

    We play Cle/Tennessee if that team beats SD. If SD wins then we play the winner of Pitt/Jax.
