NFC North weekend programming note


The choice is easy this weekend.

I'll join NFC East colleague Matt Mosley at Lincoln Financial Field this Sunday to see the only NFC North team in action. The Green Bay Packers and Philadelphia Eagles will kick off their wild-card playoff game at 4:30 p.m. ET.

It could get tricky in the division round if the Packers win Sunday. In that case, they would advance to play next Saturday night (Jan. 15) against the Atlanta Falcons at the Georgia Dome. That game would kick off at 8 p.m. ET, or 17 hours before the Chicago Bears will kick off their divisional round game against a yet-to-be determined opponent.

Anyone want to lend out a private plane? (And a pilot?) Hit the mailbag.

Ha. We'll worry about that one next week. For now, it's full steam ahead to Philly.
