NFL Divisional Playoffs, Sunday January 14th: game time, television schedule, live game chat

Are you ready for some football?

For the first time this postseason, the Buffalo Bills won’t have something to root for on a Sunday. After being eliminated at the hands of the Jacksonville Jaguars a week ago in a low-scoring 10-3 contest, Buffalo will be watching this weekend of the playoffs at home like the rest of us.

Here is all the information you need to catch the games on Sunday and some Bills connections. Come chat with us in the comments.

NFC: New Orleans Saints at Minnesota Vikings (FOX, 1:40 p.m.) - Vikings -5

Jacksonville Jaguars at Pittsburgh Steelers
CBS, 1:05 p.m. Eastern

Let’s go Steelers, am I right?

Former Bills coach Doug Marrone leads Jacksonville’s coaching staff which features former Bills coaches Nathaniel Hackett (offensive coordinator), Tyrone Wheatley (running backs), Tony Sparano, Jr. (assistant OL), and Perry Fewell (secondary) and defensive lineman Marcell Dareus and linebacker Paul Posluszny are former Bills on the roster. On the Steelers roster are former Bills linebacker Arthur Moats and wide receiver Justin Hunter and Danny Smith is the special teams coach, the same role he held in Buffalo under Gregg Williams.

Buffalo didn’t play the Steelers this season but lost to the Jaguars last weekend in the Wild Card round.

New Orleans Saints at Minnesota Vikings
FOX, 4:40 p.m. Eastern

The Vikings have had a heckuva run this season and host the Drew Brees-led Saints.

New Orleans has former Bills linebacker Gerald Hodges, while the Vikings have defensive coordinator George Edwards and defensive backs coach Jerry Gray, both former Bills defensive coordinators.

The Saints blew out the Bills in Buffalo earlier this season.
