The NFL playoff schedule continues into the divisional round after an excellent round of games on wildcard weekend. The Baltimore Ravens and New York Jets advance in the AFC and the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks advance in the NFC. The Pittsburgh Steelers, New England Patriots, Atlanta Falcons and Chicago Bears will host the games next weekend after their first round bye.
Here is the schedule for the divisional round of games next weekend:
Baltimore Ravens vs. Pittsburgh Steelers, 4:30 p.m. (ET), Saturday, CBS: This is a rematch as these two teams met twice in the regular season. This is always one of the best games of the year and we're treated to the playoff edition. The Steelers will likely be favored at home but, as Baltimore showed on Sunday, this is a heck of a road team.
Green Bay Packers vs. Atlanta Falcons, 8:00 p.m. (ET), Saturday, FOX: The Packers surprised the Eagles and they'll move onto the Falcons, who hold the top overall seed in the NFC. Matt Ryan has lost just twice at home in his career and the Packers have been competitive in every game they've played this year.
Seattle Seahawks vs. Chicago Bears, 1:00 p.m. (ET), Sunday, FOX: The Seahawks shocked the world by beating the New Orleans Saints last week and now they'll head to Chicago to play the Bears. I said last week the Seahawks didn't have a chance against the Saints. I won't make that mistake again here.
New York Jets vs New England Patriots, 4:30 p.m. (ET), CBS: Like the other AFC game, this is the third time these two teams will meet. The Jets won the first game and the Patriots slaughtered them in round two. Round three will be highly entertaining.
