Sunday's NFL playoff schedule features the Patriots vs. Jets and the Seahawks vs. Bears. The Seahawks/Bears game will be interesting to watch because a Chicago win would make for an all NFC North NFC title game next week and a Seattle victory would put a team that was below .500 going into the playoffs one win away from the Super Bowl. The Patriots/Jets game is the one all eyes will be on, though, as the trash talk this week between the two teams has been quite interesting, to say the least.â†µ
For those who are interested in the players from local colleges involved in Sunday's games, let's start first with the Seahawks vs. Bears, which gets underway at 1:00 p.m. on FOX. In this game, Seattle has former Michigan State tight end Chris Baker. Chicago has former Michigan quarterback Todd Collins and former MSU tight end Kellen Davis.â†µ
In the Patriots vs. Jets game, which kicks off at 4:30 p.m. on CBS, there are three former Wolverines and Spartans on each team. New England has former Michigan quarterback Tom Brady, former Michigan State quarterback Brian Hoyer and former U-M punter Zoltan Mesko. New York has former U-M wide receiver Braylon Edwards, former U-M linebacker David Harris and former MSU safety Eric Smith.
