Amid a day with plenty of college basketball, NBC has the honor of beginning the NFL playoffs with a doubleheader at 4:30 p.m. Former U.Va. star Matt Schaub will try to lead the Texans to their first playoff win as Houston hosts Cincinnati. Then, at 8, amazing Vikings running back Adrian Peterson will try to overwhelm the Packers for the second week in a row — but this time he’ll have to do it at Green Bay’s Lambeau Field.
