NFL Playoff Schedule 2013: Falcons Aiming For First Playoff Win And Texans Want Revenge

Jim Rogash

The second day of the Divisional Round of the 2012 NFL playoffs kicks off with a Falcons team looking for their first win, a quiet Seahawks team that watched RGIII coverage and revenge from a Texans team against an everything-is-business Patriots.

Can Sunday's round of Divisional playoff games even come close to generating the magic from Saturday? Baltimore's comeback with a little help from a disastrous Broncos secondary late in the game, conservative play-calling with a future Hall of Fame quarterback, and two overtimes; the first in the NFL since the Carolina Panthers beat the St. Louis Rams on January 10, 2004. San Francisco 49ers Colin Kaepernick putting together a historic performance against the Green Bay Packers, thrashing them 45-31. It was something else.

Sunday's round kicks off at 1 p.m. (ET) with the Falcons hosting the Seahawks, who beat the Washington Redskins last week 24-14. Yes. The Seattle Seahawks, watching from afar in the far northwest corner of the United States this week, actually who a game with redirected coverage to the controversy of Robert Griffin III's injury. And does Mike Smith join Marvin Lewis as active head coaches without a postseason win in four tries? Meanwhile the Houston Texans, who beat Cincinnati 19-13 last Saturday, look for vengeance after losing 42-14 to the Patriots in Week 14. No one is giving the Texans much of a chance, but then no one gave the Ravens one either.
