2013 NFL playoff schedule: Wild Card round starts Saturday

USA TODAY Sports

The Steelers missed the playoffs, but fellow AFC North teams in Baltimore and Cincinnati are in.

The Steelers may not have made to the NFL Playoffs this year, and their semi-rare absence will cast a pall on January football for Pittsburgh fans, but here's the playoff schedule anyway.

Saturday, Jan. 5:
No. 6 Bengals vs. No. 3 Texans, 4:30, NBC
No. 6 Vikings vs. No. 3 Packers, 8:00, NBC

Sunday, Jan. 6:
No. 5 Colts vs. No. 4 Ravens, 1:00, CBS
No. 5 Seahawks vs. No. 4 Redskins, 4:30, FOX

In the AFC, the Broncos have the No. 1 seed and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs; the Patriots have the No. 2 seed and a bye. If the Texans win their Wild-Card matchup (which they'd probably prefer not to be playing; they lost out on a bye after dropping their last two games), they will head to New England. If the Bengals win, they'll be in Denver.

In the NFC, the Falcons are the No. 1 seed, and the 49ers are the No. 2 seed. If the Packers win their Wild-Card matchup, they'll head to San Francisco, and if the Vikings win, they'll go to Atlanta.
