NFL: Playoffs Set

The National Football League playoffs kick off Saturday with the first round featuring wild card teams and lower seeded division winners.

The Indianapolis Colts will host the Kansas City Chiefs, while the Dallas Cowboys will be in Seattle to play the Seahawks.

On Sunday, the New York Jets play the New England Patriots, and the New York Giants will face the division rival Eagles in Philadelphia.

The top seeds, the San Diego Chargers of the American Conference and Chicago Bears of the National Conference, enjoy a first round bye, as do the AFC Baltimore Ravens and NFC New Orleans Saints.

The divisional playoffs follow one week later with four more games, followed by the conference championships on January 21. Those winners will advance to Super Bowl 41 in Miami, Florida on February 4.
