NFL Playoff Schedule 2011: Times And Announcers For This Weekend's Playoff Games

The NFL Playoffs come to their conclusion on Sunday, with the Championship Games for both conferences to determine who emerges from the playoff brackets and plays in Super Bowl XLV. 

Sunday's schedule begins with the NFC Championship at 3 p.m. EST, when the Chicago Bears host their NFC North Division rivals, the Green Bay Bay Packers. The two teams split their regular season series, and despite the game being played at Soldier Field in Chicago, it's the Packers that are slight favorites, giving four points. 

In the afternoon, the New York Jets and Pittsburgh Steelers meet in the AFC Championship. The Jets just won in Pittsburgh last month, and they seemingly have all the momentum, but the Steelers are slim favorites according to Bodog.
