NFL Playoff Games on TV Today

NFC Wild Card: Minnesota at New Orleans, 1:05 p.m. on FOX

These two teams waged an instant classic the last time they met in the playoffs two seasons ago. You know the Saints (or their fans) haven’t forgotten about the “Minneapolis Miracle.” Can the Vikings spoil New Orleans’ postseason aspirations once again?

NFC Wild Card: Seattle at Philadelphia, 4:40 p.m. on NBC

These two teams met during the regular season but this time the stakes are much higher, obviously. Injuries have drastically impacted each team’s roster so will it be one of the quarterbacks or some unheralded player that rises to the occasion in this game?
