The NFL’s wild card weekend is over and only eight teams remain in the tournament and the race for the Vince Lombardi Trophy. They will all play next weekend with a chance for the conference championship games on the line, with the first of the AFC’s games kicking off the action. Let’s take a look at the upcoming schedule:
Saturday, January 12
4:35 p.m. ET — AFC: #6 Indianapolis Colts at #1 Kansas City Chiefs (NBC)
8:15 p.m. ET — NFC: #4 Dallas Cowboys at #2 Los Angeles Rams (FOX)
The Colts will have to travel for the second straight week, this time to Kansas City’s Arrowhead Stadium to take on the AFC’s number one seeded Chiefs in a meeting of two explosive offenses. Afterwards, the Cowboys will play in Los Angeles in a battle between two of the better quarterback-running back tandems in the NFL — and two very good defensive units.
Sunday, January 13
1:05 p.m. ET — AFC: #5 Los Angeles Chargers at #2 New England Patriots (CBS)
4:40 p.m. ET — NFC: #6 Philadelphia Eagles at #1 New Orleans Saints (FOX)
The Patriots will kick off the second day of divisional round action on Sunday when they host the Chargers at Gillette Stadium — a rematch of the 2006 and 2007 playoffs. Later, the Saints will host the defending world champions, who knocked off the NFL’s number one defense in a close game decided by a missed Chicago Bears’ field goal attempt that hit the goal post twice before falling incomplete.
