USA TODAY Sports

Lost amongst the hirings, firings and rumors is that there's some actual football to played still. It's wildcard weekend in the NFL and we've got 2 games on tap. The first is of interest to Eagles fans because it pets Jay Gruden's Bengals offense against a good Texans defense. The Eagles will reportedly interview Gruden next week.

The nightcap should just be a good game. If you caught Vikings vs Packers last week, that was just a great game. So the rematch in Green Bay should hopefully be fun as well.

Below we've got all the relevant info for tonight's games.
