The 2013 NFL playoff schedule is set for the Divisional round. After Saturday and Sunday's Wild Card results we now know the teams that will be playing on the second weekend of the playoffs, and we'll finally get to see those No. 1 and No. 2 seeds who had byes to start the playoffs.

In the AFC Wild Card round, the Texans beat the Bengals and the Ravens beat the Colts. In the NFC Wild Card round, the Packers had no trouble with the Vikings and the Seahawks outlasted the Redskins.

Now for the next round:


Saturday, Jan. 12

Ravens vs. Broncos, 4:30 p.m. ET, CBS
Packers vs. 49ers, 8 p.m. ET, FOX

Sunday, Jan. 13

Seahawks vs. Falcons, 1 p.m. ET, FOX
Texans vs. Patriots, 4:30 p.m. ET, CBS

This is the best weekend in football. It's usually the best matchups and this year is no difference. The Ravens-Broncos game will be great, but I can only see one of those two teams winning it all - Denver. The Packers-49ers game might be the best one of the weekend. The Seahawks and Falcons will be a lot of fun -- too bad for Atlanta, I wouldn't want to see the Seahawks right now. The Patriots will be big favorites against Houston again.

Maybe the Chiefs can do some GM scouting during that Packers-49ers game.

Best game of the weekend for you?
