Steelers vs. Titans:
For round two of the NFL Playoffs, the Steelers are matched up against an opponent from the regular season. Pittsburgh advanced to this weekend’s match-up against the Tennessee Titans after their 36-33 comeback win over the Cleveland Browns. Tennessee beat Pittsburgh 31-23 in Week 11.
Falcons vs. Eagles:
Two of the league’s most versatile quarterbacks, Donovan McNabb and Michael Vick, square off this weekend when Atlanta travels to Philadelphia for this Saturday’s match-up. Vick led the Falcons to a stunning upset of the Green Bay Packers in round one, while McNabb had an extra week to get ready for the do-or-die playoff game.
Jets vs. Raiders:
Two of the league’s hottest teams take the field with a conference title game berth on the line. The Jets, winners in eight of their last 10 games – including the 41-0 stomping of the Colts in the first round of the playoffs – face a Raiders team that has won seven of its last eight. Oakland beat the Jets 26-20 in Week 13 and it will be the fourth time the Jets play at the Oakland Coliseum in 20 games.
49ers vs. Buccaneers:
A year ago, Steve Mariucci had a chance to become the Buccaneers’ head coach. Instead, he stayed in San Francisco, allowing then-Raiders coach Jon Gruden to leave the Bay for Tampa Bay. Their teams square off this Sunday for a berth in the NFC title game. The 49ers advanced with an amazing fourth-quarter rally over the Giants, 39-38.
