NFL Playoff Bracket: AFC, NFC Divisional Round Matchups

The NFL playoffs roll on this weekend as the road to the Super Bowl continues for eight teams. The survivors of the wildcard card round hit the road on Saturday and Sunday, with the four teams that held byes during the wildcard round making their playoff debut. The teams were reseeded after the wildcard round, with the top seeds in each conference taking on the lowest remaining seed.

Here's a look at how the brackets as they stand now, with a look ahead to February's Super Bowl in Dallas.

NFC Divisional Round

No. 1 Atlanta Falcons vs. No. 6 Green Bay Packers
No. 2 Chicago Bears vs. No. 4 Seattle Seahawks

NFC Championship

Flacons/Packers vs. Bears/Seahawks at the higher-seeded team's home field.

AFC Divisional Round

No. 1 New England Patriots vs. No. 6 New York Jets
No. 2 Pittsburgh Steelers vs. No 5 Baltimore Ravens

AFC Championship

Patriots/Jets vs. Steelers/Ravens

Super Bowl

AFC Champion vs. NFC Champion in Dallas, Texas

Only one home team survived the first weekend, with the Seattle Seahawks shocking the New Orleans Saints at Qwest Field to move on. The Jets, Ravens and Packers were all road warriors, snatching a win in hostile territory. This week, however, the task gets much more difficult, with the top seeds in each conference entering the fold, with an extra week of rest as an advantage.

It all kicks off on Saturday as the Steelers battle the Ravens at 1:30 p.m. on CBS. For the full schedule, check our NFL playoff schedule StoryStream. For the latest bracket updates, stay tuned to this StoryStream throughout the weekend.
