NFL Playoff Schedule 2011 to Get Even Wilder

NFL Playoff Schedule 2011 to Get Even Wilder

The NFL playoff schedule 2011 already has a high bar set. Since the NFL playoff schedule 2011 began with two big upsets, no one knows what to expect anymore. But because there were two major surprises yesterday, it may give hope for today’s underdogs to pull through. It would help Kansas City, as they are home underdogs just like Seattle was, albeit not as heavily. For Green Bay and Philadelphia, they can each claim to be underdogs in their showdown. But as the NFL playoff schedule ends for wild card weekend, it is clear anything can happen now. Both the NFC and AFC were severely shaken up yesterday, now that the Saints and Colts are gone. With two less major challengers to worry about, today’s teams have a slightly clearer road to the Super Bowl, yet they still have to win themselves.

Day 2 of the NFL playoff schedule 2011 starts in Kansas City at 1 pm, as the Chiefs take on the Ravens. Despite winning the AFC West, and having a 7 1 home record, the Chiefs aren’t being strongly considered for a win. Then again, neither were the Seahawks and Jets.

For the Ravens, they come in at 12 4, but they have been distracted in recent days. With Ed Reed’s brother missing, the team and their defensive star are playing with heavy hearts. Yet that may make them more inspired to come out swinging especially since they would face the hated Steelers next.

At 4:30 pm, the end of the NFL playoff schedule 2011 for wild card weekend should set off a few fireworks. The Packers and Aaron Rodgers visit the Eagles and Michael Vick, in another case of a road team being favored over the hosts.

The fortunes of both teams have turned around in the last two weeks, as the Packers have soared with Rodgers back, and the Eagles have become an uncertain contender. Since the Packers have a top defense, and the Eagles’ offensive line is in tatters, fans are crossing their fingers that Vick can survive tonight.

This game will officially complete the NFL playoff schedule 2011 for the second round. If the Eagles win, they will visit Chicago for the second time, and send the Seahawks to Atlanta. If the Packers prevail, they would face the Falcons instead, while the Bears take on the Seahawks. Despite Seattle’s upset, the Bears may want to face them more than the Eagles and would therefore have to root for the Packers for once.

After the way both games turned out yesterday, today’s battles have a lot to live up to. Although the Ravens are still favored, and the Packers are a popular upset pick, conventional wisdom has been thrown out the window already.

Whether the second day of the NFL playoff schedule is as thrilling as day 1, it will start at 1 pm est on CBS, and then at 4:30 pm est on FOX.
