The NFL playoff schedule for 2010 is all set following the Jets’ blowout of the Bengals on Sunday night. And history is certainly the early theme. This year features the most ever first-round playoff rematches of Week 17 games.
In a repeat of their Week 17 showdown, the Jets will square off against the Bengals on Saturday, while the Cowboys try to shut down the Eagles once more. The Cowboys have been one of the hottest teams in the league as of late, winning their last three games, two of which were shutouts.
On Sunday, it’ll be the Packers and Cardinals playing in a rematch of their Week 17 game, in which Green Bay nearly blanked Arizona on their home turf.
The Ravens look to avenge their Week 4 defeat to the Patriots, who will be without star Wes Welker. The Pats’ leading receiver tore the ACL and MCL in his left knee in the Pats’ final regular-season game against the Texans.
