NFL playoff schedule 2013: Let the games begin!

USA TODAY Sports

The bracket is set and we're awaiting the start of the 2013 NFL playoff schedule. The AFC Wild Card game features the Texans hosting the Bengals while over in the NFC Adrian Peterson and the Vikings travel to Lambeau Field to face the Packers.

This is your open thread for today's NFL playoff games.

The Bengals will meet the Texans in the early game and the Packers will host the Vikings in the late game. The 2013 NFL playoffs are finally here. (We'll just ignore that part about the Chiefs not being involved.)

The Bengals-Texans is at 3:30 p.m. (Arrowhead Time) while Vikings-Packers is at 7:00 p.m. (Arrowhead Time).
