2011 NFL Playoff Schedule: New York Jets Vs. Indianapolis Colts, Baltimore Ravens Vs. Kansas City Chiefs

New York Jets at Indianapolis Colts, 8 pm Jan. 8, NBC: The two NFL teams most overly discussed by the media? I think so. The 10-6 Colts have been football's most boring team for years now, while the 11-5 Jets are at least fun to watch and a zoo of a carnival off the field, so go Jets.

This is a rematch of last year's AFC Championship Game, when Peyton Manning waited a quarter and a half to get around to splintering New York's supposedly impenetrable secondary. But this time the Jets will ... well, Manning will throw some touchdowns or something and we'll all miss Rex Ryan.

Baltimore Ravens at Kansas City Chiefs, 1 pm Jan. 9, CBS: A far more interesting matchup, but one that will get less attention. Who doesn't want to watch the league's No. 1 rushing offense take on the No. 5 rushing defense in one of the nation's best pro football venues?

Whether you've heard of him or not Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles is the NFL's best running back, and you have no reason not to watch him play this weekend. Also Ray Lewis blahhh blahhh blahhh.
