NFL playoff schedule, Wild Card round, Day 2: Vikings-Seahawks, Redskins-Packers

New, comments

If Saturday's AFC wild card action wasn't thrilling enough for you, Sunday's two NFC matchups are on the docket for your viewing pleasure on Sunday.

Saturday's NFL wild card playoffs action didn't exactly start with a bang, as the Kansas City Chiefs thoroughly dismantled the Houston Texans, winning by a final score of 30-0. But if you stayed up late last night, you were treated (is "treated" the right word?) to one of the craziest finishes ever seen in a playoff game, with the Cincinnati Bengals coughing up a late lead to fall to the Pittsburgh Steelers, 18-16.

With the AFC's divisional-round matchups settled, the NFC takes center stage on Sunday. These are the games you'll be watching; who are you pulling for today?

Vikings (11-5) vs. Seahawks (10-6)

  • Location: TCF Bank Stadium, Minneapolis, MN
  • TV (announcers): NBC (Al Michaels, Cris Collinsworth)

Seattle actually employs four former Bills players. You'll see two of them on the field: running backs Fred Jackson and Bryce Brown. A third, Tarvaris Jackson, is the backup quarterback, and a fourth, Marshawn Lynch, is trying to return from midseason surgery, but won't play today.

Redskins (9-7) vs. Packers (10-6)

  • Date: Sunday, January 10, 2016
  • Time: 4:40 p.m. ET

The only former Bills player in this contest is Washington kicker Dustin Hopkins, who was a sixth-round Bills draft pick in 2013. He has made 25-of-28 field goal tries and 39-of-40 extra point attempts for the Redskins this season.
