NFL Playoff Schedule 2013: Dates, Times And Where To Watch All Postseason Games

By Jason Van Hoven, Posted: 01/04/13 05:13PM EST

The 2013 NFL playoff schedule is quite the lineup this year.

The AFC South division champion Houston Texans and Cincinnati Bengals begin it all with Wild Card weekend in Houston on Saturday afternoon. The Texans beat the Bengals 31-10 in last year's wild card matchup, but this go-around may be different. Many consider the Texans to be limping into the playoffs after having lost three of their last four thanks to a defense that has been shaky as opposed to dominating like it was during the first three-quarters of the season.

On Saturday night, the Minnesota Vikings travel to Lambeau Field for a Week 17 rematch with the Green Bay Packers. Minnesota beat Green Bay at home 37-34 in the regular season finale last week behind Adrian Peterson's 199 rushing yards to clinch a playoff berth . The Packers, still, were 7-1 at home this season, so the Vikings may not get the same result as before.

Sunday's first contest features the AFC North champion Baltimore Ravens hosting the seemingly overachieving Indianapolis Colts. This game will be power-packed with emotions as it may be linebacker Ray Lewis's last game as a pro, while the Colts will most assuredly carry the inspiration that head coach Chuck Pagano has provided after his recovery from leukemia and return to the sidelines.

The Redskins and Seahawks end it all and will feature two rookie quarterbacks -- Robert Griffin III and Russell Wilson -- going at it for just the second time in NFL postseason history. Two of the NFC and NFL's best running backs -- rookie Alfred Morris for Washington and Marshawn Lynch for Seattle -- will also square off. Let's not forget about each team's defenses, which know how to pressure quarterbacks.
