2013 NFL playoffs schedule: Patriots-Texans Rematch, Falcons-Seahawks on Sunday

Stew Milne-USA TODAY Sports

The Texans are looking for redemption in the playoffs, having suffered a lopsided loss to the Patriots in Week 14.

The Seattle Seahawks visit the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, and the Houston Texans travel to take on the New England Patriots as the divisional round of the 2013 NFL Playoffs continues.

The Falcons have put together a 13-3 season and are the No. 1 seed in the NFC, but an 0-3 playoff record in their previous four seasons has been a constant reminder that what happens in the regular season isn't what ultimately matters. The Seahawks are on a six-game win streak and managed to post a rare road playoff win against the Washington Redskins in the Wild Card round. The two teams face off at 1 p.m. ET, with television coverage provided by FOX.

The Texans and the Patriots saw each other once during the regular season, a 42-14 Week 14 win by New England that has few giving Houston much of a chance on Sunday. Tom Brady was his usual self in that game, throwing for four touchdowns and nearly 300 yards, and the Pats defense held Arian Foster to just 46 yards on 15 carries. Foster had 140 yards in Houston's Wild Card round victory over the Cincinnati Bengals, and the Texans are in for a long day if he can't repeat that effort. The rematch happens at 4:30 p.m. ET, with CBS providing the broadcast.
