NFL Divisional playoffs 2013 schedule: Seahawks draw early Sunday game

Daniel Shirey-USA TODAY Sports

The Seahawks got the dreaded early slot for their next playoff game, but that might not matter for this squad.

The Seattle Seahawks visit the Atlanta Falcons at 10 a.m. PT on Fox this Sunday as part of the 2013 NFL Divisional playoffs schedule. The early slot on a Sunday has long been a bother to West Coast teams, but Seattle was able to win their last early game, an overtime victory over the Chicago Bears. With the way this team prepares under the leadership of rookie quarterback Russell Wilson, the time of the game may play no part in how well the Seahawks play.

The winner between the Seahawks and Falcons will advance to the NFC title game to face either San Francisco or Green Bay. The 49ers host the Packers on Saturday night at 5 p.m. That game will also be televised on Fox. The Niners took down the Packers in Week 1 of the season, but both teams are playing much different since that time. The Packers shook off some early season struggles to make a push for the NFC North title, while the 49ers have an entirely new quarterback at the helm.

On the other side of the bracket, the Broncos and Ravens kick off the festivities Saturday at 1:30 p.m. on CBS. The winner there faces the survivor of the Patriots and Texans, who play Sunday at 1:30 p.m. on CBS. Both matchups occurred late in the regular season, with Denver and New England coming away with easy victories.
