It may be 2013 already, but in the NFL it’s the start of the 2012-season playoffs; don’t forget, it’s win or go home. On Saturday the #6-seed Cincinnati Bengals travel to the #3 Houston Texans, who want a big performance (on top of the win) to regain early-season confidence (2130 – Sky Sports). In the late KO the #3 Green Bay Packers will be looking to avenge their loss to the #6 Minnesota Vikings in a repeat of last week’s game (0100 Sun am – Sky Sports). On Sunday the surging #5 Indianapolis Colts play the off-form #4 Baltimore Ravens (1800 – Sky Sports). Baltimore have some added impetus as legend Ray Lewis has just announced these playoffs are to be his ‘retirement party’ Finally the #5 Seattle Seahawks play at the #4 Washington Redskins (2130 – Sky Sports); will RG3 have enough fitness back to be as much of a threat as he has shown he can be?… (1 hour highlights package late Monday on BBC2 – 0010 Tues am).
