---NFL PLAYOFFS--

There are four big playoff games this weekend in the NFL and if they are as exciting as last weekends games, they will not disappoint.

Last Saturday New Orleans was on the road taking on Philadelphia. The Eagles took the lead in the 4th quarter with a touchdown making the score 24-23.

It came down to a field goal by former Virginia Tech kicker Shayne Graham who split the uprights in the last seconds of the game to win it.

Saturday they have another tough matchup against the 13-3 Seahawks.

In the AFC Divisional playoff tomorrow the Colts are taking on the Patriots.

Indianapolis came back from an astonishing 28 point deficit to take the wildcard win last week. Andrew Luck had his ups and downs during the game, but ended the day 29 of 45 for 443 yards.

Luck knows this week against Tom Brady and New England will be difficult.

"They're a phenomenal football team, they do a great job disguising their defenses, everything seems to look the same and then you blink for a second and it's completely different and you screwed up. So we've got to be on our P's and Q's," said Luck.

The game tomorrow starts at 8:15 PM on CBS.

Two more playoff games will be on Sunday, San Francisco 49ers are taking on the Panthers while the Chargers will play the Broncos.
