AFC

The New England Patriots and the Denver Broncos were seeded No. 1 and No. 2 respectively and they will have a bye week, allowing others to compete in what everybody calles Wild Card games.

Baltimore Ravens vs Pittsburgh Steelers

The AFC North is the best division with three teams entering into the playoff. Pittsburgh won the contentious division by beating Cincinnati 27-17 on Sunday. The Steelers are back in the playoff as division champions through quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

Meanwhile, the Baltimore Ravens entered the playoff by beating Cleveland 20-10 in the final game. Joe Flacco will have another shot at the Super Bowl if they would continue to be sharp.

The Ravens vs Steelers Wild Card game is on January 3, 2015 at the Heinz Field, start time is at 8:15 PM and tv schedule is on NBC.

Cincinnati Bengals vs Indianapolis Colts

The high-powered offense of the Indianapolis Colts will test the tight defense of the Cincinnati Bengals. The Colts will try to advance to the next round through ace quarterback Andrew Luck. The Colts didn’t put that much effort in the last two games against Dallas and Tennessee.

On the other hand, the Bengals lost to the Steelers on Sunday to get the wildcard berth. With the defensive schemes of Cincinnati through coach Marvin Lewis, this game is very interesting. The Bengals will try to advance to the next round after failing to do it in the last three seasons.

The Bengals vs Colts NFL wild card game is on Sunday, January 4, 2015 at the Lucas Stadium. Start time is at 1:05 PM ET and tv schedule is on CBS.

NFC

Arizona Cardinals vs Carolina Panthers

The Arizona Cardinals (11-5) will face the Carolina Panthers (7-8-1) in one of the NFC’s wild-card games. The Cardinals are on decline after losing the last two games with the third string quarterback. It seems that the fire on Cardinals performances is gone and that they need to lit it up as they play on the road against the Panthers. Though the Panthers have more losses than wins, they are very dangerous. They can overpower the Cardinals at home.

The Cardinals had many opportunities to win the homefield advantage but they struggled to get a victory against the Seahawks and the 49ers. While the Panthers defeated Atlanta 34-3 on the road, still the Cardinals are the favorites to win.

The Cardinals vs Panthers NFL Wild Card playoff game is on January 3, 2015 4:35 PM at the Bank of America Stadium. This game is televised on ESPN.

Detroit Lions vs Dallas Cowboys

The high-octane offense of the Dallas Cowboys will be in total display as they host the Detroit Lions in the NFC Wild Card game. Dallas can look back at the regular season only to find out that Tony Romo was at his best when DeMarco Murray runs well by hitting the 100 plus yards on the ground.

The Lions will have their own arsenals with Matthew Stafford as the quarterback. Detroit has one of the best receiving corpses with Golden Tate, Calvin Johnson and Eric Ebron.

The Lions vs Cowboys NFC wild card game is on January 4, 2015 at 4:40 PM ET at the AT&T Stadium. The game is televised on Fox.
