The NFL playoffs continues on Sunday with the New York Jets and New England Patriots meeting on Sunday along with the Seattle Seahawks and Chicago Bears. There are two completely different story lines with each of these teams as you have two of the best teams in the NFL in the Jets and Patriots and then you have the Seahawks, who no one thought would make it out of the wildcard round, and the Bears, who are a surprise first round bye playoff team.
Seahawks vs. Bears, 12:00 p.m. (CT), FOX: The Seahawks are heavy underdogs once again but, hey, it was the same way last week against the Saints. Point spreads apparently don't matter to Seattle. The Bears are a surprise team and one that's hard to get a good read on. If Jay Cutler is playing well, then this is a tough team to beat coupled with one of the best defenses in the NFL.
Jets vs. Patriots, 3:30 p.m. (CT), CBS: The Jets and Patriots Monday Night Football game at the beginning of December had the hype of a playoff game as the Patriots steamrolled the Jets 45-3. The hype is even bigger this time around and I imagine the Jets will be better prepared for the game. The Patriots are favored by a whopping nine points in this game so most are expecting them to win. That's about where Rex Ryan likes it.
The wildcard round was one of the most exciting in recent memory as three of the four games came down to the last minute. We'll see if the divisional round can match that.
