Is this is a great weekend of football we’ve got coming up or what? For the 2012 divisional playoffs, all four games should be great to watch and bet on. Whether you love or hate the teams playing, these are compelling games with all sorts of potential story lines.

Can Eli Manning beat the Packers and step into the elite category? Can the 49ers defense stop the high-flying Saints offense? Can Tim Tebroncow go on the road and beat Tom Brady’s New England Patriots? Can the Cowboys (oops) Texans continue their playoff run?

2012 NFL Divisional Playoff Schedule

Saints at 49ers: Saturday, January 14, 2012. 4:30 pm ET. Televised on FOX

The games begin with a killer NFC matchup between the New Orleans Saints vs. San Francisco 49ers, both of whom finished the regular season at 13-3. This is arguably the best offense in the league against the best defense, and it should be a fantastic matchup.

Broncos at Patriots: Saturday, January 14, 2012. 8:00 pm ET. Televised on CBS

The late game scheduled for Saturday is the Denver Broncos vs. New England Patriots. What can I possibly say that hasn’t been said 1000 times already…. here’s a good one from our friends at Wikipedia. When Tim Tebow’s mother started having complications during pregnancy, her doctor recommended that she abort little Timmy to save her own life. Stating the obvious, she decided not to.

Too bad for the Steelers.

Texans at Ravens: Sunday, January 15, 2012. 1:00 pm ET. Televised on CBS

If there’s any game that isn’t drawing as much attention, it’s the first game on Sunday between the Houston Texans vs. Baltimore Ravens. With that said, this is still a more exciting game than a lot of divisional games have been in recent years. Regardless of the results, Texans fans will have home-state bragging rights for at least one year. The new America’s Team?

Giants at Packers: Sunday, January 15, 2012. 4:30 pm ET. Televised on FOX

The finale of the 2012 divisional playoffs is just a little one, featuring the New York Giants vs. Green Bay Packers. Heard of them? These teams played a great game in week 13 where the Packers won 38-35 in New York. The Giants are better than they were then, and this rematch between Eli Manning and Aaron Rodgers is one that I can’t wait to see.

Once the AFC and NFC Conference Playoff teams are decided, we’ll update this post. Super Bowl 46 will be played in Indianapolis this year, scheduled for February 5th.
