NFL Playoff Schedule: Bengals at Texans, Vikings At Packers Get It Started

The brackets are set and we'll finally find out who the Broncos will face next week.

The waiting is over! While the Broncos won't play until next Saturday, we could know who they will face. The Cincinnati Bengals travel to Texas to face the Houston Texans in a rematch of last year's Wildcard game won by Houston 31-10. If the Bengals pull the upset, they will travel to Denver to face the Broncos. Should Houston win, the Broncos will play the winner of Sunday's game between the Baltimore Ravens and Indianapolis Colts.

The late game features a rematch of last Sunday's thrilling game between the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings. Needing a win to get in, the Vikings rode Adrian Peterson all the way to a 37-34 win. That game was in Minnesota, however, with tonight's playoff game at a much colder Lambeau Field.
