NFL Playoff Schedule: Patriots Vs. Jets, Seahawks Vs. Bears

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.
