NFL Playoff Schedule 2011 rolls right along to the NFC Championship game that will find the Saints playing their first home game of the playoff season against the Green Bay Packers.
New Orleans is going to be rocking when the unusual outcomes produces an oddity of scheduling that finds a number five seed hosting a Championship game. This game will feature two very similar offenses.

They feature a ball hawking secondary that is second in the NFL in interceptions and they have one of the league's best pass rushers in Clay Mathews.
