AFC Divisional Playoff: Houston at Kansas City, 3:05 p.m. on CBS
These teams met earlier in Arrowhead Stadium this season with the Texans winning 31-24 back in Week 6. The talents of Deshaun Watson and Patrick Mahomes were on full display in that game, as the two dynamic quarterbacks combined for 594 total yards of offense and six total touchdowns. They also committed four turnovers. But the key for the rematch could be the improvement the Chiefs' defense has shown since the Week 12 bye. Houston's defense also looked different last week against Buffalo with J.J. Watt back on the field. Winner of this game will host the surprising Tennessee Titans next Sunday in the AFC Championship Game. The Titans knocked off No. 1 seed Baltimore 28-12 on Saturday night a week after beating defending Super Bowl champion New England in the Wild Card Round.
NFC Divisional Playoff: Seattle at Green Bay, 6:40 p.m. on FOX
The Seahawks took care of business last week on the road in Philadelphia but face a tougher task on Sunday. The Packers are ready to show why they are deserving of being the No. 2 seed and Aaron Rodgers is tough to beat at home. But Green Bay head coach Matt LaFleur is new to this stage while Pete Carroll is 11-8 with a Super Bowl ring. Also, Russell Wilson (with an assist from Marshawn Lynch) has beaten Rodgers and the Pack in the postseason before, although that was five years ago and not at Lambeau. The winner will head to San Francisco next Sunday to face the No. 1-seeded 49ers in the NFC Championship Game.
