NFL playoffs

Seattle Seahawks @Green Bay Packers

4:30 p.m. [chs. 45, 5]

Well, it won't be the Ice Bowl in Green Bay today. The forecast is for a balmy 32 degrees with some snow flurries. This is a game that should feature plenty of offense. Seattle was tied for No. 2 in the NFL in pass attempts and Green Bay was No. 6. Packers quarterback Brett Favre and Seahawks coach Mike Holmgren won a Super Bowl together in Green Bay.

Jacksonville Jaguars @New England Patriots

8 p.m. [chs. 13, 9]

Every game the Patriots play has history written all over it. A loss now, and the perfect regular season is sullied. The Jaguars are the playoff team whose style is most influenced by a smash-mouth approach. They'll try to outhit and out-muscle New England and grind down the clock when they have the ball. But if the Patriots get ahead by 10 or 14 points, the Jags might panic.
