Playoffs?!? Not kidding you. Playoffs.

The NFL playoffs are here.  Here is your schedule for wild card weekend:

WILD CARD WEEKEND - SATURDAY, JAN. 3
NFC: No. 5 Arizona Cardinals at No. 4 Carolina Panthers 4:35 p.m. ET ESPN
AFC: No. 6 Baltimore Ravens at No. 3 Pittsburgh Steelers 8:15 p.m. ET NBC
WILD CARD WEEKEND - SUNDAY, JAN. 4
AFC: No. 5 Cincinnati Bengals at No. 4 Indianapolis Colts 1:05 p.m. ET CBS
NFC: No. 6 Detroit Lions at No. 3 Dallas Cowboys 4:40 p.m. ET FOX

There are Cal alumni in action in three of the four games.  (It would be all four, but for Marvin Jones being on injured reserve for the Cincinnati Bengals.)  The list:

Lorenzo Alexander, LB, Arizona Cardinals

Thomas DeCoud, S, Carolina Panthers

Justin Forsett, RB, Baltimore Ravens

Jeremy Ross, WR/PR, Detroit Lions

L.P. Ladoceur, LS, Dallas Cowboys

And, to boot, former Cal linebacker Ron Rivera is the head coach of the Carolina Panthers.

Enjoy the games and share your thoughts here. This is your wild card weekend open thread. Make it wild.
