NFL playoff schedule includes Ravens at Broncos on Saturday, Texans at Patriots on Sunday

Rematches from two blowout games this season will occur in the divisional round of the AFC playoffs.

Baltimore's decisive victory over the inexperienced Indianapolis Colts Sunday sets up a 4:30 p.m. ET kickoff Saturday, Jan. 12 at Denver for the rematch of a game earlier this season in which the Broncos routed the Ravens 34-17 in Week 15.

On the other side of the bracket, the Houston Texans will return to the scene of the crime, Gillette Stadium, for a rematch against the Patriots. That game, a 42-14 Patriots blowout, came in Week 14. The Patriots and Texans will kick off at 4:30 p.m. ET Sunday, Jan. 13.

Seattle's 14-point comeback win over Washington puts them in Atlanta for their NFC Divisional round game, scheduled for 1 p.m. ET Sunday. Green Bay, fresh off a 24-10 whipping of Minnesota, will head to No. 2 seed San Francisco for an 8 p.m. kickoff Saturday.

Interestingly, the final four in the AFC have all played each other this season. New England and Houston are 2-1 in round robin play, while Baltimore and Denver are 1-2.
