NFL Playoff Schedule: This is the latest news that the NFL has officially released playoff schedule is, and the patriots, as defined, to play their divisional game at 16:30 ET on Sunday, January 16. Their opponent will be either the aircraft, bosses, or crows. I hope your team is one of the 12 Lucky transition its way into the playoffs, because the popcorn tastes much better. As we all come to learn this new season, and anybody can win … with the exception of Seattle. We’ll give credit where credit is due though.
