If you're a New York Giants' fan, like Branford's number one and number two greatest fans of all time – Jack Barletta and Justin Pelazza – you're probably not looking forward to the NFL's Wildcard Weekend. If you're a Philadelphia Eagles' fan like me... well the season has been over for a while (Andy Reid is heading to the Kanas City Chiefs says USA Today). But if you're rooting for the New England Patriots or any other division playoff team (Broncos, 49ers and Falcons) you're going to have eyes glued to the TV this weekend starting with Saturday's first wildcard game where the Cincinnati Bengals plays the Houston Texans at 4:30 p.m.
So if your heart is still in the 2012-13 season, here's a list of this weekend's games. Feel free to chat with your neighbors about the possible outcomes in the comments. Go Eagles! ;)
