The 2012 NFL Playoffs roll on and we fans get two days of excellent matchups this weekend. Can life get better? Well, the Cardinals are not in the playoffs and the 49ers are, so I guess so, yes. Whatever, it's still awesome to watch football.
Saturday, January 14:
New Orleans Saints at San Francisco 49ers FOX 4:30PM ET/1:30PM PT- Candlestick Park, San Francisco CA. Kenny Albert, Daryl Johnston, and Tony Siragusa on the call. Saturday kicks off with the game we've all been waiting for. The new school vs the old. Two styles collide in what should be a great matchup.
Denver Broncos at New England Patriots CBS 8:00PM ET/5:00PM PT- Gillette Stadium, Foxboro MA. Jim Nantz and Phil Simms on the call. Can Tim Tebow and the Broncos do it again? Can the Patriots smack them around like the did in Week 15? Time shall tell.
Sunday, January 15:
Houston Texans at Baltimore Ravens CBS 1:00PM ET/10:00AM PT - M&T Bank Stadium, Baltimore MD. Greg Gumbel and Dan Dierdorf with the call. The Texans and Ravens are two of the NFL's top defensive and rushing teams and this one should be a slugfest. Two tough, hard-nosed teams fighting for the chance to advance to the AFC Championship game.
New York Giants at Green Bay Packers FOX 4:30PM ET/1:30PM PT - Lambeau Field, Green Bay WI. Joe Buck, Troy Aikman, Pam Oliver and Chris Myers with the call. Eli Manning, Victor Cruz and the streaking Giants travel to a the frozen tundra of Green Bay to try and knock off the defending champs. It won't be easy, but this is the NFL. Any Given Sunday.
