NFL playoff schedule 2014: Game times, TV schedule, announcers, odds on Wild Card Weekend

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Cincinnati is a seven-point favorite looking for its first playoff win since the first Bush administration, while San Francisco looks to bounce Green Bay out of the postseason for the second straight year.

Chargers (9-7) at Bengals (11-5)

Game Time: 1:05 p.m. ET
TV: CBS -- Jim Nantz, Phil Simms, Tracy Wolfson).
Radio: Westwood One -- Ian Eagle, Trent Green, Tony Boselli; Sirius -- 88 (WW1), 92 (SD), 86 (Cin.). XM: 88 (WW1), 225 (SD), 86 (Cin.).
Odds: Bengals -7

Can the Bengals finally win in the postseason? That's really what this game is about, outside of the bitterness likely held by Steelers fans watching the game. What's done is done, the Bengals will be out of excuses if they lose at home to an inferior Chargers team.

Weirder things have happened, though.

Pick: Bengals

49ers (12-4) at Packers (8-7-1)

Game Time: 4:40 p.m. ET
TV: FOX -- Joe Buck, Troy Aikman, Pam Oliver.
Radio: Westwood One -- Tom McCarthy, Rod Woodson, Mark Malone; Sirius -- 88 (WW1), 92 (SF), 86 (GB). XM: 88 (WW1), 225 (SF), 86 (GB).
Odds: 49ers -3

You don't know cold until you've experienced what these teams will play in today at Lambeau Field. It's impossible for the weather to not be a factor. Dry, cold conditions make for a slippery ball, and the gloves necessary to not suffer the kind of frostbite that requires amputation will make it even trickier to secure.

Whether that means the running game (San Francisco) or the passing game (Green Bay) will be affected is up in the frozen air. These teams know each other well, and the Packers are looking to rebound from a postseason thrashing at the hands of the 49ers from last year.

That won't happen, though. The 49ers are peaking at the right time, and have key players back who haven't played much this season - Aldon Smith and Michael Crabtree in particular.

Pick: 49ers
