The divisional round of the NFL playoffs kicks off today.

At 3:35pm, the New Orleans Saints will travel to Seattle to take on the NFC West Champion Seahawks.  

The Saints, who have struggled mightily on the road this season will look to make it two in a row away from the Big Easy after defeating the Philadelphia Eagles on a last-second field goal from Shayne Graham.  

Seattle hammered New Orleans 34-7 in Week 13 earlier this season.  The game will also be a rematch of a 2010 Wild Card matchup where the 7-9 Seahawks pulled off one of the biggest upsets in NFL Playoffs history.

The nightcap, at 7:15pm, will feature a pair of the league's best quarterbacks as Tom Brady and the New England Patriots will host Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts at Gillette Stadium.

Brady will put his 17-7 playoff record to the test as Luck, fresh off an incredible 28-point comeback win over the Chiefs, will look to advance to his first AFC Championship game.
