2013 NFL Playoff standings: Ravens face Colts, Texans battle Bengals in Wild Card Round

USA TODAY Sports

Four playoff games are set for Saturday and Sunday. The Steelers won't be playing, but they have some deep rivalries with some of the teams that will be.

After a wild regular season across the NFL, the playoffs are finally here. Four games are scheduled for next weekend, while four other teams have bye weeks.

The first game is between the Houston Texans and Cincinnati Bengals. These two teams met last season in the playoffs, with the Texans cruising to a 31-10 victory. The game figures to be much closer this time around, especially with Houston limping into the playoffs. Kickoff is scheduled for 4:30 p.m. ET and will be televised by NBC.

The primetime game on Saturday night will pit the Packers against the Vikings. These two teams met in Minnesota in Week 17, with the Vikings winning on a last-second field goal. Green Bay has historically been very tough to beat at home in the playoffs, and both teams will have to deal with the winter elements at Lambeau Field. Kickoff is set for 8 p.m. ET. NBC will air the game.

On Sunday, Andrew Luck and the upstart Indianapolis Colts will take on the Baltimore Ravens at 1 p.m. ET. The Colts have been one of the top stories of the year, and the return of coach Chuck Pagano last weekend made for quite the scene. Baltimore has been hampered with injuries all year long, although they have the talent to make a deep run if healthy. CBS will televise the game.

The final game on Sunday will have rookies Russell Wilson and Robert Griffin III facing off in what should be a high-scoring barnburner. The Seahawks are really moving the ball on offense, while the Redskins haven't lost since early November. Kickoff on FOX is scheduled for 4:30 p.m. ET.
