I believe I posted this week’s NFL playoff schedule once it became clear after last week’s games, but now seems like a good time to revisit it. The Ravens and Steelers face off in the first game this week, on Saturday at 4:30 at Heinz Field (CBS). The late game on Saturday will be at 8:00 in the Georgia Dome (FOX), and it will feature the Packers and Falcons.
On Sunday, the NFC has the early game, as the Seahawks face the Bears in Chicago at 1:00 (FOX). If the Steelers do manage to beat the Ravens, they’ll look to the late game between the Jets and Patriots at 4:30 in New England (CBS), as they’ll face the winner in the AFC championship.
There are only seven games left in the NFL season, so let’s see if the Steelers can make this one count. The Steelers are favored by three and a half points. SB Nation Pittsburgh’s divisional round picks post is here.
