The media will be in full force in Foxboro this Saturday night.

The 2012 NFL Playoffs got off to quite a start this past weekend. The home teams won all four Wild Card games, leaving only the NFL’s eight division winners left to compete for the eventual title of Super Bowl Champion.

But before we get ahead of ourselves, this weekend is the Divisional round. The top two seeds in each conference will be in action for the first time this postseason after earning first round byes and will host the four winners from last week’s games. As was the case last weekend, there will be two games this coming Saturday and two more on Sunday.

Saturday’s first game will showcase Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints as they head west to face the San Francisco 49ers. This game will take place at 4:30 EST and be shown on Fox. The nightcap will feature Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos making their way east to take on Tom Brady and the top-seeded New England Patriots. This game will air on CBS at 8:00 EST.

The early game on Sunday will have Ray Rice and the Baltimore Ravens hosting the Houston Texans. This game will take place at 1:00 EST and air on CBS. The second game will feature likely NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers and the defending Super Bowl Champion Green Bay Packers playing host to Eli Manning and the New York Giants. This game will begin at 4:30 and be shown on Fox.

The four teams hosting games this weekend boast a combined 53-11 regular season record including an incredible 30-2 record at home. So will we see another 4-0 week out of the home teams? Let’s examine the matchups to find out.
