The Curse of Sunday Afternoon's Second Game

My happiness after today's hard fought win faded a bit when I found out that our game against Philly is scheduled again as the second game next Sunday afternoon. I am not that superstitious, but I was hoping to have the game played Saturday since the late Sunday slot has been for us a kind of Bermuda triangle in the last dozen years or so. 

In the last decade and counting, no team has played playoff games on this slot afternoon more than the Green Bay Packers. And it has been nothing but a nightmare for us:

January 1999 at SF - Loss

January 2002 at Rams - Loss

January 2004 at Philly - Loss

January 2005 against Minnesota - Loss

January 2008 against Giants - Loss

January 2010 at Arizona - Loss 

We have to go back to January 1998 to find the last GB playoff win in this slot (won at SF to advance to the Superbowl).  Since that SB loss to Denver, this cursed slot has ended our playoffs every time with the exception of the Saturday night debacle in 2003 against Vick and the Falcons.

Speaking of Vick, can we break this curse against him? I'm looking forward to it.
