Chiefs Lock Up 1st Seed in AFC Division
Week 17 was an exciting finale to the regular season, setting the stage for January and February football, and April's draft.

Wildcard Weekend Lineup
Postseason will be kicking off in Houston on January 5 when the AFC South champion Texans play host to the Colts. This game will mark the third time this year that these two teams have met, and if the two earlier games are any indication, this one could get wild. In Week 4, the Texans won 37-34 in overtime. The Colts then got revenge with a 24-21 win on the road in Week 14.

In the AFC's other wild-card showdown, the Chargers will make their first playoff appearance in five years when they travel to Baltimore. The two teams met earlier this season in a game where the Chargers got shut down at home by Baltimore's defense during a 22-10 Ravens win.

As for the NFC, playoff football will finally be returning to Chicago after an eight-year absence when the Bears host the defending Super Bowl champion Eagles. The game on Sunday will mark the first time since January 2011 that the Bears have hosted a playoff game. In the NFC's other wild-card game, the Seahawks will be traveling to Dallas to take on a Cowboys team that will be hosting a playoff game for the third time in five years. For Wildcard Weekend, here are the match ups we're looking at:

Saturday, January 5
AFC Wildcard Playoff
Colts VS. Texans

NFC Wildcard Playoff
Seahawks VS. Cowboys

Sunday, January 6
AFC Wildcard Playoff
Chargers VS. Ravens

NFC Wildcard Playoff

The Chiefs and Patriots and the Saints and Rams are on a Bye week. This should allow these teams ample time to rest up and heal, giving them an advantage for week 2 of Playoffs.
