NFL Playoff Open Thread: Wild Card Weekend

New, comments

The first weekend of the 2010 NFL Playoff are here, in January 2011. NBC will show both games on Saturday, with the NFC West division winners taking on the first wild card team, the fifth seeded New Orleans Saints. This game represents the first team with a losing record that qualified for the playoffs during the Super Bowl era while the Saints return to the playoffs after winning last year's Super Bowl.

The second game on Saturday brings an intriguing matchup between the Indianapolis Colts and the New York Jets. This is a rematch from last year's AFC Championship game where the Colts beat the Jets 30-17 thanks to Peyton Manning's 377 yards passing and three touchdown passes along with Pierre Garcon and Austin Collie combining for 18 receptions for 274 yards receiving and two touchdowns.
