NFL playoffs 2013 schedule and bracket: Falcons set to host Seahawks

Kevin C. Cox

Matt Ryan and the top-seeded Atlanta Falcons will host Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks in the Divisional round of the NFL's playoffs.

Matt Ryan and the top-seeded Atlanta Falcons now know their first opponent of the 2013 NFL playoffs: the Seattle Seahawks. Seattle's win over Washington on Sunday solidified the NFL's Divisional round schedule -- and let Mike Smith's team know who they'll be facing next weekend.

Seattle will head to Atlanta to take on the Falcons on Sunday, Jan. 13 (1 p.m. ET, FOX). If Ryan and the Falcons notch the win, they'll play host to the winner of the Green Bay-San Francisco Divisional round game. If the Seahawks pull off the upset, they'll head either to Green Bay or San Francisco for the NFC title game.

Baltimore and Denver will kick off the weekend, as Ray Lewis takes on Peyton Manning (4:30 p.m. ET, CBS), in what could be Lewis' last NFL game. If the top-seeded Broncos win, they'll host either New England or Houston in the AFC title game. If Baltimore upsets Denver, the Ravens will head either to Houston or Foxboro for the AFC title game.

San Francisco and Green Bay will square off on Saturday night, as Aaron Rodgers and the Packers take on Patrick Willis and the 49ers in prime time (8 p.m. ET, FOX).

Lastly, Tom Brady and the Patriots play host to the Houston Texans in the final Divisional round game of the season (4:30 p.m. ET, CBS). If the Patriots advance to the AFC title game, they'll either host the Ravens or head to Denver, as Bill Belichick tries to advance to his second consecutive Super Bowl. If Gary Kubiak's Texans pull off the upset, they'll either host the Ravens or head to Denver for the AFC title game.
