NFL playoff schedule 2013: It's the best football weekend of the year

Four games are on tap today, in what is usually the best weekend of football every season. However, these games might not be that close.

You hear the same thing every year about this section of the NFL playoff schedule. "This is the best weekend of football of the year". And in theory, the divisional round should be. It often is. You get four excellent, high-level games that all mean something, which is very rare. Next week, there will only be two games. It makes sense.

Except I really don't feel like these games are going to be terribly competitive, outside of the game between the Green Bay Packers and San Francisco 49ers. I'm not sure who's going to win that one, and I'd be shocked if it's not a one-score encounter.

The other games? I'm expecting them to be decided by two or more scores, with the Patriots, Broncos and Seahawks earning very comfortable wins. I'll have explanations, along with Tex and Devin in a few when I throw up picks. For now, here's your schedule of games for the weekend.

Ravens vs. Broncos - Saturday, 3:30 p.m. CT, CBS. Announcers: Greg Gumbel, Dan Dierdorf.

Packers vs. 49ers - Saturday, 7 p.m. CT, FOX. Announcers: Joe Buck, Troy Aikman.

Seahawks vs. Falcons - Sunday, 12 p.m. CT, FOX. Announcers: Thom Brennaman, Brian Billick

Texans vs. Patriots - Sunday, 3:30 p.m. CT, CBS. Announcers: Jim Nantz, Phil Simms
