2013 NFL Playoffs schedule and bracket: Falcons prep for Seahawks

USA TODAY Sports

Falcons-Seahawks and Patriots-Texans are the matchups for Sunday's schedule.

The second slate of Divisional Round games kicks off in Atlanta this afternoon.

In the NFC, the No. 1 Atlanta Falcons host the No. 5 Seattle Seahawks at 1 p.m. Sunday. It is the only game this weekend that isn't a rematch of a regular-season game. The Seahawks are one of the hottest teams in the NFL, winning eight of their last nine games. The Falcons, meanwhile, had a bye, but lost in Week 17 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with all of their starters on the field.

In the final game of the weekend, the No. 2 New England Patriots welcome back the No. 3 Houston Texans to Gillette Stadium. On Dec. 10, the Patriots cruised past the Texans, who were the No. 1 team in the AFC at the time, by a score of 42-14. There has been a lot of hype in this game, from a Boston Globe columnist calling the Texans frauds to Texans defensive coordinator Wade Phillips saying Patriots slot receiver Wes Welker is "not that big or a real athletic guy."

The NFC Championship game is set for Sunday, Jan. 20, at 3 p.m. on FOX. The AFC Championship game will be on the same day at 6:30 p.m. ET on CBS.

Here is the full bracket.
