NFL Playoff Schedule 2013: Falcons, Seahawks, Patriots and Texans Round Out Divisional Weekend

New, comments

The Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers are waiting to see who they will face in next Sunday's AFC and NFC Championship Games

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

I really thought I would be sitting here this morning talking about the Denver Broncos win and who they would be hosting in the AFC Championship Game. Instead the Broncos are cleaning out their lockers and it is the Ravens that will be booking a trip to either New England or Houston.

The beat goes on, however, and we'll be ok.

Today's early game finds the Seattle Seahawks traveling back to the east coast to take on the Atlanta Falcons. Matt Ryan is still searching for his first playoff win - there is likely no player in the playoffs with as much pressure on him to win.

Seattle has to be affected by two cross-country flights in back-to-back weeks. This will probably be the toughest defense Russell Wilson will face as Mike Nolan's crew does a great job of disguising their coverage.

The late game is another rematch game when the Houston Texans travel to face Tom Brady and the Patriots. Brady led New England to a 21-0 lead en route to a 42-14 win. Can the Texans compete today? I think the game is much closer, but the results are likely the same.
