New Orleans Saints vs. Seattle Seahawks, 4:30 p.m. (ET), NBC: The Seahawks enter the game as heavy underdogs -- 10-11 points -- and no one is giving them a real shot to win. The Saints are the defending Super Bowl champs and enters the game as the No. 5 seed with an 11-5 record. The Seahawks, 7-9, are the first losing team to win their division, which got them a home playoff game.

New York Jets vs. Indianapolis Colts, 8:00 p.m. (ET), NBC: The Colts are 2.5 point favorites entering this game and Peyton Manning has Rex Ryan's number with a 5-1 record against Ryan-coached defenses since 2005. Ryan has been talking the Jets up all year so they'll be looking to back up what they've been saying. This game takes place in Indy's Lucas Oil Dome where they've been highly successful.
