NFL playoff schedule 2013: Broncos big favorites, Packers visit 49ers

New, comments

The 2013 NFL playoff schedule moves one step closer today with two games in the AFC and NFC Divisional round games. The No.1 seed Denver Broncos get in on the action for the first time today, hosting Ray Lewis and the Baltimore Ravens. Over in the NFC Divisional round game, Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers go on the road to face the San Francisco 49ers.

The Broncos are nearly 10-point favorites over the Ravens while the Packers are slight road 'dogs against San Francisco. Many people are calling the Packers-49ers the best game of the weekend and I'd have to agree. Denver seems a step ahead of the Ravens (everyone, really), riding an 11-game winning streak.

Sunday's games feature the red-hot Seattle Seahawks facing the Atlanta Falcons and the New England Patriots hosting the Houston Texans.
