NFL Playoff Schedule 2011: Packers, Falcons Cap Off Saturday's Playoff Action

The final NFL playoff game of Saturday features the Atlanta Falcons hosting the Green Bay Packers in the Georgia Dome. The Falcons, the NFC's #1 seed, are 13-3 on the season and this is the first game on the Falcons playoff schedule. They earned a first round bye last week.

The game starts at 8 PM ET and will be aired on Fox. Troy Aikman and Joe Buck are your playoff announcers. Tomorrow's NFL playoff schedule features Seahawks-Bears at 1 PM ET and Jets-Patriots at 4:30 PM ET.

The Falcons beat the Packers 20-17 in Week 12 of the regular season. A Matt Bryant field goal with seconds to play was the difference for the Falcons in a game that was basically played even for four quarters. I think this game is going to be another even match up, which in my opinion is the best kind of game if you dont' have a favorite team in the game. 

The is the second game on the Packers playoff schedule. They beat the Philadelphia Eagles last week 21-16 to advance to Atlanta. 

I'm really indifferent to who wins this game but I guess I can root for the Falcons because of Tony Gonzalez. That's about the only reason I have to root for the Falcons. 

Who do you have tonight?
