The schedule formula implemented in 2002 with realignment guarantees that all teams will play each other on a regular, rotating basis. After the 2008 season, a decision was to continue with the same rotation in 2011.

Wildcard Weekend will be Saturday and Sunday, Jane. 7-8; Division Playoff games on the weekend of Jan. 14-15; and the AFC and NFC Championship Games on Sunday, Jan. 29.
