NFL Playoffs: Week One Schedule and Where to Watch

The Patriots are on a bye week but there is still a lot of football action this weekend. Find out where to catch games in the Braintree area.

Tom Brady and the New England Patriots are back in the playoffs and will be in search of their fourth Superbowl Ring since 2002.

The Patriots clinched a playoff spot and ended the season with a 12-4 record. Also, thanks to their Dec. 10 win over the Houston Texans (also a 12-4 team), the Pats earned a bye week in the first round of the playoffs.

However, while there will not be a Patriots game this weekend, there will still be plenty of action. It's also a good chance to watch the upcoming competition. 

Most importantly for this weekend, New England fans should pay attention to the showdown between the Bengals and the Texans as the winner of that game will face the Patriots on Jan. 13, according to CBS Sports.

Has anyone found out if the baker at the "ALL CAN EAT" gluten free bakery and restaurant that closed in Feb. 2012, George Moufarres, is baking someplace else? Will he open up another bakery? SOOO many of us poor gluten free souls really hope he does. This diet is horrible and he was the only bright star for us. If you know anything about this, please email me at barbwoburn@aol.com. Thanks...I hope someone has some good news for me! George could make it a Happy new Year if he opens up again!
