The first weekend of the NFL Playoffs is now in the books. All four road teams won, setting up an interesting weekend of matchups between the final eight. The weekend kicks off in Foxborough as the red hot Chiefs take on the Patriots. The Cardinals host the Packers Saturday night in a rematch of a Week 16 Arizona blowout win. The best game of the weekend on paper is early Sunday as the 15-1 Panthers host the two-time defending NFC Champion Seahawks. This is the second straight season these teams will meet in the Playoffs. The two teams have also played tight regular season games four years in a row so there is plenty of bad blood already. The weekend concludes in Denver where the Broncos and Steelers will meet in a rematch of a Week 15 classic won by Pittsburgh.
