If you're wondering what happened to your favorite University of Tennessee football player, you probably can find out by turning in to the NFL playoffs.
Eight ex-Vols will be participating in postseason action this weekend, with nine more scheduled to join the fun next weekend.
Interestingly enough, the two pro teams with the most ex-Vols – the New England Patriots (16-0) and Green Bay Packers (13-3) with three each – were so good they earned first-round byes. Conversely, only one of the 12 NFL playoff teams has no ex-Vols on its roster.
What follows is a Big Orange fans' guide to the playoffs:
AFC: Jacksonville Jaguars at Pittsburgh Steelers (8:00 on NBC)
Defensive tackles John Henderson and Tony McDaniel represent the Jaguars but McDaniel is on injured reserve and won't participate in the playoffs. Wideout Cedrick Wilson plays for the Steelers.
