After a wild Saturday in the NFL that saw the Texans comeback from 16 points down and the Titans stun the defending champions, we head to the NFC portion of the Wild Card playoffs.

Only one former ‘Cat will take the field today in Saints offensive lineman Larry Warford. The two time Pro Bowler and his team will look to advance to face Green Bay next week with a win over the Vikings. That game will kick at 1:05 pm on FOX.

In the other matchup, the Seattle Seahawks will travel to Philly to take on the Eagles. No Kentucky connection in this game, but there is a Western Kentucky player as former Hilltopper Basketball star (yes, basketball), and Bowling Green native, George Fant will suit up on the Seahawks offensive line. This game will kickoff at 4:40 pm on NBC.

As these two games get ready to start, here is a look at the updated playoff bracket for the NFL’s 100th season:

It should be a great day for football! Congratulations to Titans and Texans fans on big wins yesterday. As a Bengals fan, maybe I will one day experience the same.

    The final ESPN computer rankings for college football has UK rated at #25.

    It also has Ohio State still rated #1 and Clemson rated number 2, followed by LSU.

    Just saying….it is nice to be recognized as a top 25 team, no matter how it arrives.
