NFL Playoffs 2011 is here, and the predictions, and speculations (and betting) have begun with the Wild Card Weekend looming large.

The Saints find themselves in unfamiliar territory. Last season, they locked up home field advantage while owning the NFC's best record. This season, they will be participating in the first round of the playoffs, locking up a Wild Card seed while the Atlanta Falcons had a regular season to remember.

The Eagles are back in the playoffs, but with a different look. Michael Vick is fighting health concerns, and doubters, as he leads Philadelphia and DeSean Jackson into the playoffs against the Green Bay Packers.

Peyton Manning is back in the playoffs, but just a year after his Colts finished 14-2, this year they sneaked in at 10-6, just ahead of the Jacksonville Jaguars. Skeptics are ready to declare the dynasty over, so Manning will have something to prove against the Jets on Saturday.

Could this finally be the year of the J-E-T-S? Perhaps only if Sanchez's shoulder is ready to go.
