NFL Playoff Schedule: FOX Has Best Wild Card Weekend Matchup
The 2010 NFL regular season is in the books and the playoffs are set to begin on Saturday. The Pats and Steelers earned first-round byes in the AFC and all the teams in that conference have at least double-digit wins. The Falcons and Bears earned the byes in the NFC while the Saints (the second-best record in the NFC at 11-5) got in with a wild card berth. Oh yeah, and for the first time ever, a team with a losing record won its division, keeping two 10-6 teams (the Giants and Buccaneers) at home.
