NFL Wildcard Weekend Schedule & Announcers

The breakdown of the NBC broadcasts on Saturday info courtesy of Awful Announcing:

Saturday January 9th (both games on NBC):

5. New York Jets @ 4. Cincinnati Bengals 4:30pm EST — Tom Hammond, Joe Gibbs, Joe Theismann

6. Philadelphia Eagles @ 3. Dallas Cowboys 8pm EST — Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth

Sunday January 10th:

6. Baltimore Ravens @ 3. New England Patriots 1pm EST CBS — Jim Nantz and Phil Simms

5. Green Bay Packers @ 4. Arizona Cardinals 4:30pm EST Fox — Joe Buck and Troy Aikman

You read that right, folks.  Theismann is back!

***UPDATE***

I have located the divisional round playoff schedule.  I don’t know the announcer assignments for a dead certain fact, but I will make suppositions

Saturday January 16th:

@ 1. New Orleans 4:30pm EST on Fox — Kenny Albert, Moose, and Goose

@ 1. Indianapolis 8pm EST on CBS —  Greg Gumbel and Dan Dierdorf or Jim Nantz and Phil Simms

Sunday January 17th:

@ 2. Minnesota 1pm EST on Fox — Joe Buck and Troy Aikman

@ 2. San Diego 4:30pm EST on CBS — Jim Nantz and Phil Simms or Greg Gumbel and Dan Dierdorf

The Conference Championship Games are Sunday January 24th:

AFC 3pm EST on CBS — Jim Nantz and Phil Simms

NFC 6:30pm EST on Fox — Joe Buck and Troy Aikman

The Pro Bowl is Sunday January 31st:

@ Miami 7:20pm EST on ESPN — Mike Tirico, Ron Jaworski, and Jon Gruden

The Super Bowl is Sunday February 7th:

@ Miami 6:20pm EST on CBS — Jim Nantz and Phil Simms

I will edit the divisional playoff announcer pairings if/when I know for sure.  Also, that is a bit different than has been scheduled in the past as usually the network that has the night game on Saturday has the 1pm game on Sunday.  However once the decision was made to make Indianapolis the Saturday game, given CBS had the primetime slot this year, San Diego could not be early Sunday.
