The 2014 NFL playoff schedule Divisional-round gets underway this Saturday as the road towards Super Bowl XLVIII marches on. With the Saints and Chargers picking up huge road wins last week, the Bengals and Eagles are out of the NFL tournament chase for the Lombardi trophy, and two big underdogs live to see another week.
Now the real tests are coming.
According to a Sportsline report on Jan. 8, this weekend's schedule will see San Diego heading to face Peyton Manning and the record-setting Broncos in Mile High, while the Saints will travel to the Pacific Northwest to face a team that seemingly never loses at home, the Seattle Seahawks.
The other two games on this weekend's schedule will feature an AFC match-up between the Colts and the Patriots and a NFC clash between Colin Kaepernick and Cam Newton when the 49ers face the Panthers in Carolina.
Last week the Wild-Card picks did everything – win, lose and tie!
