NFL Playoff Schedule 2011: Seattle Seahawks And New Orleans Saints Play January 8

The 2011 NFL Playoff Schedule is out, and the NFC West Champion (I double-checked!) Seattle Seahawks and the Wild Card (I double-checked!) New Orleans Saints will play the first playoff game of 2010, going on Saturday, January 8 at 3:30 on NBC. The second Wild Card Weekend game in the NFC, the Green Bay Packers against the Philadelphia Eagles, will be played the next day, on FOX.

The rest of the first-round action is as follows: Saturday the New York Jets will play the Indianapolis Colts at 7:00 on NBC, with the winner taking on the Pittsburgh Steelers; while Sunday at noon the Baltimore Ravens and the Kansas CIty Chiefs will play for the right to go against the New England Patriots.

If the Seahawks beat the Saints, they'll get the chance to play the Atlanta Falcons on Saturday, January 15. The other division winners, the Chicago Bears, will play the winner of the Packers-Eagles game.
