SB Nation 2014 NFL Playoff Coverage

Welcome to game day!

It just doesn't have the same ring to it as when the Chiefs are playing. Today, we have two NFL games in the Divisional round, leading off with the Saints and Seahawks and then rolling into the Colts vs. the Patriots. Both games have at least a touchdown spread so, unlike the Chiefs-Colts game last weekend where the line moved all over the place, there is a clear favorite in these games.

We have information below on each of the games. I'd encourage you to check out the associated SB Nation blog if you're looking for more information about that team.

(6) New Orleans Saints (11-5) vs. (1) Seattle Seahawks (13-3)

Last week the No. 6 seed Saints beat the Eagles in Philly. The Seahawks have yet to play because they earned a first round bye and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.

Time: 4:35 p.m. ET

TV channel: Fox

Online streaming: Click here

Odds: Seahawks 8-point favorite

Last game: 12/2/13, Seahawks won, 34-7

Chiefs connection: The Seahawks are former divisional rivals. The Chiefs beat the Saints last year as one of their two wins so there's that.

(4) Indianapolis Colts (11-5) vs. (2) New England Patriots (12-4)

Last week the Chiefs beat the Colts, as you know. The Patriots are the No. 2 seed in the AFC (Broncos are the No. 1 seed) so they earned a first round bye.

Time: 8:15 p.m. ET

TV channel: CBS

Online streaming: Click here

Odds: Patriots are a 7-point favorite

Last game: 11/18/12, Patriots won, 59-24

Chiefs connection: The Colts, of course, beat the Chiefs last weekend. If you don't want to see lots of talk and highlights from that game, then don't watch this game. The Patriots are who the Chiefs wanted to be back when GM Scott Pioli was here!
