NFL playoff schedule 2013: Texans, Patriots close out Divisional round slate

New, comments

One last game in an incredible weekend of football. Hang out with us at APC as the Houston Texans face off against the New England Patriots in an AFC Divisional round playoff game.

Well, that last game was fun. We've seen two stone cold classics this weekend, and the one game that didn't fall into that category featured a first-year starting QB break the record for rushing yards in a playoff game by a quarterback midway through the second quarter. It's been rough for Packers fans, but all three games have been incredible for neutrals so far. The divisional round closes out on Sunday afternoon with the Houston Texans taking on the New England Patriots.

The Patriots are heavy favorites in this game, but it wouldn't exactly be shocking to see a team with J.J. Watt, Arian Foster and Andre Johnson pull off an upset. Matt Schaub is no Tom Brady, but he got the big game monkey off his back last week and might finally be ready for a game of this magnitude.

Kickoff is just after 3:30 p.m. CT, 4:30 p.m. local time from Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, MA. The game is being broadcast on CBS, with Jim Nantz and Phil Simms calling the action.
