Obviously this is the quickest announcing schedule ever, because of there only being four games, but I thought you'd still like to see who's calling which game and where. The Wild Card Weekend features some great matchups, and will even mark the first time that the Falcons and Cardinals played on NBC since 1997.

I'm not quite sure why NBC is going with Tom Hammond for the game, but we do get a special treat. Tiki as a sideline reporter! Here's your announcing schedule for this weekend, and full Playoff schedule for the rest of the month. Start trading events with your significant others now!

These 1:00pm Kickoff times are Total BS!! :willybs:

The NFL loves to manipulate schedules during the late regular season with their flex scheduling to feature Primo games later in the day to get the best audience.

Playoff games don't get much better for maximum viewership so why wouldn't all of the early games be a 4:15 kickoff?......followed up with a prime-time 8:30 kickoff for the second game.
