Sunday NFL Playoff Schedule

Two of the final four teams in the NFL playoffs are set. The Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC and the Green Bay Packers in the NFC. Today, we find out the other two as the divisional round wraps up.

First up on FOX at 1pm the Chicago Bears host the Seattle Seahawks. The Bears are heavy favorites, but then again so were the Saints. That said, the Seahawks won't be in the friendly confines of Qwest Field, they won't be facing a dome team outside and the Bears defense won't be nearly as forgiving as New Orleans. The winner of this gets to host the NFC Championship game next week against the #6 seeded Packers.

At 4:30 on CBS, the trash talk finally stops as the Jets and Patriots finally get down to business. There's been more talk between these teams this week than probably any other game in the NFL this season. These teams hate each and here they are facing one another with everything on the line. The Jets will try to bounce back from the 45-3 destruction at the hands of the Pats a little over a month ago. Steelers fans will be rooting hard for the Jets because if NY wins, the AFC title game is in Pittsburgh. If New England wins, they host the Steelers next week in a game that could be a classic.

It's worth nothing that both the Bears and the Patriots are double digit favorites today. We got one great game and one dud on Saturday... so hopefully the Seahawks or Jets can give us a fun game to watch.
