NFL playoff schedule: Divisional round features three rematches

The next round of the playoffs is set and we know who is playing when

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Wild card weekend is complete and three of four home teams came away with victories. Two of the three rookie quarterbacks lost, with Russell Wilson beating Robert Griffin, III and the Washington Redskins. The divisional schedule is now set as three of the four matchups are rematches.

The New England Patriots host the Houston Texans. They walloped Houston earlier in the season. The San Francisco 49ers host the Green bay Packers. They faced one another in Week 1 and the Niners came away with a convincing win. The Denver Broncos host the Baltimore Ravens in a reamatch of the 34-17 Week 15 win Denver had.

The lone first-time matchup for this season? The Seattle Seahawks go into Atlanta to face Matt Ryan and the Falcons
