NFL Playoff Schedule: Chiefs Can Play Patriots Or Steelers With A Win Over Ravens

By now we've got the entire NFL playoff schedule down (with the exception of who from the NFC West will host the Saints). The NFL has announced the dates and times of the entire playoff schedule.

On Saturday, January 8, the Saints will host the winner of the Rams-Seahawks game at 3:30 p.m. (CT). That night the Jets will face the Colts in Indianapolis at 7:00 p.m. Both games are on NBC. On Sunday, January 9, the Ravens travel to KC to play the Chiefs at 12:00 p.m. on CBS. The afternoon game will be the Packers-Eagles at 4:30 p.m. on FOX.

The divisional round has also been scheduled. On Saturday, January 15, the highest seed of the Colts, Chiefs or Ravens will travel to Pittsburgh to play the Steelers at 3:30 p.m. on CBS. The lowest seeded team in the NFC will play the Falcons at 8:00 p.m. on FOX. On Sunday, January 16, the remaining NFC team will play against the Bears at 12:00 p.m. on FOX. The AFC game will be against the Patriots at 3:30 p.m. on CBS.

The NFC Championship game is on Sunday, January 23, at 2:00 p.m. on FOX. The AFC Championship game will be at 5:30 p.m. on CBS that night.

The Chiefs are the fourth seed and the Patriots, as the top seed, will play the lowest seed. If the Chiefs and Colts (third seed) win, that will be the Chiefs. If the Chiefs and Jets win, that will be the Jets. I think many would prefer the Chiefs travel to Pittsburgh to play the Steelers. The Patriots seem to be on another planet at times this year.
