NFL Playoffs TV Schedule, Wild-Card Weekend: Lions Vs. Saints, Bengals Vs. Texans Playing Saturday

The Washington Redskins' season is over, but I imagine many of you will be watching football this weekend. Yup, it's the NFL Playoffs, and this weekend is one of the most exciting ones in the game. Here's your TV schedule for Saturday's Wild Card weekend action.

No. 6 Cincinnati Bengals at No. 3 Houston Texans: Both teams enter the playoffs with a loss, and neither team has been given much of a chance to advance far in the playoffs. The Bengals are seen as too young, while the Texans are too banged-up. In the end, it'll be a battle between two rookie quarterbacks, as Andy Dalton and T.J. Yates will hope to manage the game enough for their superior defenses to win it. (NBC, 4:30 p.m.). For more on the Bengals, visit Cincy Jungle. For more on the Texans, visit Battle Red Blog and SB Nation Houston.

No. 6 Detroit Lions at No. 3 New Orleans Saints: Now this one should be interesting. The Lions are making their first playoff appearance in forever, and despite this, they are feeling disrespected by people playing the disrespect card. The Saints are everyone's favorite team (except Falcons fans) and they come in on a roll. Earlier in the season, these two matched up and the Saints walloped the undisciplined Lions. Will history repeat itself? (NBC, 8 p.m.). For more on the Lions, visit Pride of Detroit and SB Nation Detroit. For more on the Saints, visit Canal Street Chronicles.
