It's Saturday of the NFL playoff Divisional Round, and that means that there are two games on this afternoon. We've got all of your need to know information for the games, and then consider this post an open thread to discuss those games.
The first game of the day features the AFC's sixth seed, the Baltimore Ravens, traveling to New England to face the Patriots, the winners of the AFC East and the top overall seed in the AFC playoffs. That game will be at 4:35 p.m. eastern time and will be broadcast on NBC, with Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth on the call.
The night game features the Carolina Panthers, the NFC South champions and the fourth seed in the NFC playoffs, against the Seattle Seahawks - who earned the top overall seed in the NFC playoffs and won the NFC West division. The game will be at 8:15 p.m. ET and will be broadcast on FOX, with Kevin Burkhardt and John Lynch on the call.
The winners of the four games this weekend will meet in the conference title games next weekend for the right to go to the Super Bowl. Believe it or not, if the Ravens beat the Patriots and the Colts beat the Broncos, the AFC Championship game would be held in Indianapolis. But, of course, there's a lot left to be figured out and that would necessitate two upsets happening in the coming days. As we know, however, in the NFL playoffs, anything can happen, so as you watch the games today, consider this an open thread for you to discuss Saturday's NFL action.
