NFC South programming notes

TAMPA, Fla. -- Time to get ready for one of the biggest 24-hour periods in NFC South history.

I’m about to fly to New Jersey, where I’ll be covering Sunday’s playoff game between the Atlanta Falcons and New York Giants. But, before we even get to that game, we’ve got another NFC South playoff contest.

The New Orleans Saints host the Detroit Lions on Saturday night. Colleagues Kevin Seifert and Jeff Chadiha will be at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. I’ll be watching the game from my hotel room and providing a wrap-up as soon as it’s over. I’ll also jump into our Countdown Live chat during the game between the Saints and Lions.

On Sunday morning, I’ll join NFC East colleague Dan Graziano and Sal Paolantonio from our television side out at MetLife Stadium. I’ll get you the inactives about 90 minutes before kickoff and also will keep you up to date on any pregame news or notes.

Once the game starts, Graziano and I will be jumping into the Countdown Live chat along with Matt Williamson from Scouts Inc., ESPN Stats & Information and the folks from ESPNNew York.com.
