The NFL playoffs continue this weekend as the divisional round starts. After a weird wild card weekend, with sloppy games but two very exciting finishes the playoffs are off to an inconsistent start. Saturday and Sunday should see some really high-quality matchups, with the NFC matchups looking especially promising. The Seahawks and Panthers are arguably the two best teams in the NFL right now, and they'll play each other on Sunday.

That's not the only game worth watching, though. The Patriots are looking for yet another Super Bowl win, as they host the Kansas City Chiefs on Saturday, while the Packers travel to Arizona to see if Carson Palmer can be stopped. Finally, the Steelers and Broncos round off the weekend in what is likely to be the worst game of the bunch.
