2013 NFC playoff bracket and picture: Falcons to face winner of Seahawks vs. Redskins

Larry French

The Atlanta Falcons will host the winner of the Seattle-Washington NFC Wild Card game, as the Green Bay Packers have already booked their ticket to San Francisco for the Divisional Round.

The Atlanta Falcons don't know exactly who they will be facing in the Divisional Round of the NFC playoffs, but they do know that they will face the winner of the Seattle Seahawks - Washington Redskins game.

Since the third-seeded Green Bay Packers won on Saturday night, they will automatically go on to play the second-seeded San Francisco 49ers, regardless of the outcome of Seattle vs. Washington. However, just because the Falcons are the No.1 seed in the NFC and hosting the game doesn't mean they're a shoe-in for a win, as both the Seahawks and Redskins are coming into the playoffs with serious momentum.

The Falcons beat the Redskins 24-17 in Washington on Oct. 7 and have not faced the Seahawks this year. However, the Redskins offense has really hit its stride with Robert Griffin III since then, so the win may not necessarily be that indicative of future success.
