NFL playoff schedule 2016: Printable bracket, TV times & Super Bowl 50 odds

NFL playoff schedule 2016: Printable bracket, TV times & Super Bowl 50 odds
The NFL playoff schedule for 2016 is finally set! It took all 17 weeks of play, but we finally know who is in, who is out and the first round matchups for the postseason. According to aSportsline report, several teams controlled their own destiny yesterday when they hit the field, yet they let the golden opportunities in-front of them slip away.
The New York Jets had a "win and you're in" situation against the Buffalo Bills, but in the end it was their former coach Rex Ryan who got the last laugh. For the second time this season Ryan's Bills defeated his former team, this time dashing their dreams of a Super Bowl run.
While the Jets defeat was the worst of the lost opportunities on the day, since it eliminated them from the postseason, the Patriots had an opportunity slip through their hands to claim home field advantage throughout the playoffs in the AFC, falling to the Miami Dolphins 20-10.
In the NFC we already knew all six playoff teams heading into yesterday’s action, however the matchups were far from set – until now. Carolina claimed home field throughout the postseason after thrashing Tampa Bay, and the Minnesota Vikings captured the NFC crown by defeating the Green Bay Packers late last night on Sunday night football. Okay, well enough about yesterday, let’s get to the playoff schedule and Super Bowl favorites!
Interestingly enough, although the Cardinals and Patriots both looked bad yesterday in losing their final regular season games, they are the top two favorites to win the big game in January.
