With the regular season over, let the playoffs begin; we’re now on the final stretch of the road to Super Bowl XLVIII. This weekend the third and forth seeds in each conference host the sixth and fifth, respectively. On Saturday the Kansas City Chiefs (last season’s worst team) are at the Indianapolis Colts, lead by last season’s #1 Draft pick QB Andrew Luck (21:35 Sat – Sky Sports). Later the wildcard New Orleans Saints play the strengthening Philadelphia Eagles (01:10 Sun – Sky Sports). On Sunday the San Diego Chargers face the Cincinnati Bengals (18:05 Sun – SkySports). These two have already faced each other this season; the Bengals were narrow victors first time around. Finally, last year’s Super Bowl losers, the San Francisco 49ers are at the Green Bay Packers, who are getting healthy on offence at just the right time (21:40 Sun – Sky Sports). Winners in the AFC will face the Broncos or Patriots, and in the NFC, next up are the Seahawks or the Panthers.
