The 2011 NFL playoff schedule is now set, and the Seattle Seahawks will host a first round game. The 2011 NFL playoff schedule begins on Saturday, Jan. 8, and the Seahawks will be hosting the opening game. It is bound to be a very exciting time for Seahawks fans, especially with how well they played against the St. Louis Rams on Sunday night. Now they have been graced with a spot in the 2011 NFL Playoffs, even if some football fans around the league don't believe it should have happened.
The official 2011 NFL playoff schedule will have Seattle vs. New Orleans, with a start time of 1:30 pm PT on Saturday. The game will be broadcast in the Spokane area on NBC (channel 6 to Spokane Comcast customers). This means that most football fans will also be able to watch the game on NBC HD (channel 106 to Spokane Comcast customers). It's also probably a sure thing that most sports bars across Washington State will be airing the game live for the fans.
If the Seahawks can win their game against the New Orleans Saints in the NFC Playoffs, they will then have to head to Atlanta to play against the Falcons for their second round game. It's a tough road ahead for Seattle, but the first major obstacle of making it into the postseason came through in great fashion Sunday night.
