The 2011 MLS Playoffs kickoff at 9 pm tonight on Fox Soccer Channel, as the New York Red Bulls head to Texas to take on recently slumping FC Dallas in the first Wild Card round game of the playoffs.

The winner affects the Philadelphia Union's start time on Sunday afternoon, along with the playoff match ups after the Wild Card round. If the Red Bulls win, the Union will kickoff at 5 pm and New York will head to California to take on MLS' Supporters Shield winner, the Los Angeles. If Dallas wins, then the Union will either kick off at 4 pm or 6 pm, with the latter happening if the Colorado Rapids lose to the Columbus Crew in tomorrow night's Wild Card game.

Here are the starting line ups for the two teams playing tonight:

Red Bulls: Frank Rost, Jan Gunnar Solli, Stephen Keel, Tim Ream, Roy Miller, Dax McCarty, Teemu Tainio, Rafael Marquez, Joel Lindpere, Dane Richards, Thierry Henry

Dallas: Kevin Hartman, Zach Loyd, Ugo Ihemelu, George John, Jair Benitez, Marvin Chavez, Brek Shea, Moises Hernandez, Ricardo Villar, Andrew Jacobson, Jackson
