The playoff seedings for both NFL conferences are all but determined at this point in time, and that means that the league has decided on its playoff schedules for the first two weekends. The Green Bay Packers, having the number two seed in the NFC, will get a week off before hosting their first game; that game will take place on Sunday, January 11th, at 12:05 PM Central Time. The opponent is, of course, to be determined by the results of the Wild-Card round.

Here are the playoff standings first, which will be followed by the playoff schedule.

NFC Playoffs

Seed Team Record Division
1 Seattle Seahawks 12-4 NFC West
2 Green Bay Packers 12-4 NFC North
3 Dallas Cowboys 12-4 NFC East
4 Carolina Panthers 7-8-1 NFC South
5 Arizona Cardinals 11-5 Wild Card
6 Detroit Lions 11-5 Wild Card

AFC Playoffs

Seed Team Record Division
1 New England Patriots 12-4 AFC East
2 Denver Broncos 12-4 AFC West
3 Pittsburgh Steelers 11-5 AFC North
4 Indianapolis Colts 11-5 AFC South
5 Cincinnati Bengals 10-5-1 Wild Card
6 Baltimore Ravens 10-6 Wild Card

Based on these seedings, it will be an AFC North tilt in one Wild Card game, with Baltimore visiting Pittsburgh, while Cincinnati falls to the #5 seed and will travel to Indianapolis next weekend.

There you have the seedings for both conferences - now it's time to look at the schedule for the Wild-Card round of the playoffs next Saturday and Sunday.
