NFL Playoff Schedule: NFC Field Is Set

Only one home team won this weekend, perhaps proving who has the best home field advantage in football.  With the Seahawks and Green Bay Packers winning this weekend, the NFL Playoff Schedule in the NFC is set.

It all gets underway in the NFC next Saturday night when the Green Bay Packers face the Atlanta Falcons in primetime from the Georgia Dome.  The Falcons beat the Packers 20-17 during Week 12 based in large part on an Aaron Rodgers fumble at the goal line.

↵

The Sunday game has the 8-9 Seattle Seahawks in Chicago to face the Bears from Soldier Field.  Amazingly, the Seahawks best the Bears in Chicago during Week 6.  Amazingly enough, if the Packers beat the Falcons and Seahawks upset the Bears, it would be Seattle - at 9-9 - that would host the NFC Championship game.
