2010 NFL Wildcard Playoffs

The 2010 NFL Wildcard Playoffs lines have opened heading into Monday morning with one more game to still be posted.

The Indianapolis Colts were -3 favorites at home vs. the New York Jets.

New York had already clinched a Playoffs spot last week and managed to manhandle the Buffalo Bills during Week 17 with nothing much to play for.

The Colts had a much more difficult time, winning in the final minutes against a decimated Titans team.

With the win, Indianapolis and Peyton Manning have claimed their 7th division title in 8 years.   They tie the Cowboys (1975-83) for the most consecutive seasons reaching the playoffs in NFL history.

The Colts also have nine straight 10-win seasons, which ranks second all-time only to the 49ers' 16 straight from 1983 to 1998.

Peyton Manning finishes the regular season with a career high in passing yardage for a season (4,700 yards), besting his 2004 MVP season when he threw for 4,557 yards.

Elsewhere, the Ravens will come into Kansas City as -3 point road favorites while the Philadelphia Eagles opened as -2.5 home favorites vs. the Green Bay Packers.

Green Bay just barely slipped into the Playoffs following a 10-3 win at home against the Chicago Bears. 

"Tonight was a struggle, but it's nice to keep that momentum going," Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said. "We've won two in a row and now we've got to go [on the road]. And we can't have the kind of inconsistent performances we've had this year that have forced us to be the No. 6 seed."
