Wild Card Weekend Schedule

The playoffs are finally here. Wild card weekend gets the postseason started with two games tomorrow and two more on Sunday. It's win or go home for every team, meaning a single play could end a team's season. Just ask Tony Romo about that last year.

Before I get into my own playoff predictions from now until the Super Bowl, below are my predictions for wild card weekend (winners in bold).

NBC SATURDAY FOOTBALL
4:30 PM   Washington @ Seattle
8:00 PM   Jacksonville @ Pittsburgh

NFL ON FOX (Sunday)
1:00 PM   NY Giants @ Tampa Bay

NFL ON CBS (Sunday)
4:30 PM   Tennessee @ San Diego

With the teams in bold advancing, here is how I see the rest of the postseason playing out:

Divisional Round
Dallas Cowboys beat New York Giants
Green Bay Packers beat Seattle Seahawks
New England Patriots beat Jacksonville Jaguars
Indianapolis Colts beat San Diego Chargers

Conference Championship Round
Dallas Cowboys beat Green Bay Packers
New England Patriots beat Indianapolis Colts

SUPER BOWL XLII
New England Patriots beat Dallas Cowboys

Having the top two teams advance in both conferences and then both #1 seeds go on to the Super Bowl is boring when it comes to no upsets, but that's just the way I see things playing out this year. Although I would bet on a couple upsets, we'll just have to wait and see.
