After a wonderful day of football on Saturday, the 2010 NFL playoffs schedule resumes on Sunday with two wonderful television matchups. Wild Card Sunday starts out with the Baltimore Ravens and Kansas City Chiefs doing battle at Arrowhead Stadium in the early game on CBS, and ends with a great afternoon contest between the Green Bay Packers and Philadelphia Eagles from the city of brotherly love on Fox. After two down-to-the-wire games Saturday -- the Seahawks toppled the heavily favored Saints 41-36, followed by a back-and-forth 17-16 win by the Jets over the Colts -- today's games have a high standard to live up to.â†µ
Here is the full television schedule For Wild Card Sunday:â†µ
10 a.m.: Baltimore Ravens (12-4) at Kansas City Chiefs (10-6) [CBS]â†µ
The Ravens are a three-point favorite, but Chiefs will pose a threat, as Kansas City won its firs seven home games this season before falling in the finale against the Raiders, after the AFC West was already in the bag. The battle of the game will be the Chiefs' rushing offense against the Ravens' rushing defense. Prediction: take Baltimore and give the points, if only to ensure next weekend will have two epic matchups in the AFC (Ravens/Steelers and Jets/Pats)â†µ
1:30 p.m.: Green Bay Packers (10-6) at Philadelphia Eagles (10-6) [Fox]â†µ
The Eagles are home favorites, by two and a half points, but will face a tough test in Aaron Rodgers and Green Bay. The Packers won their last two games just to make the playoffs, while Philadelphia dropped their final two games of the season. Prediction: take Green Bay and the points.
