NFL Playoffs: Where to Watch, TV Schedule; Who Will Play the Pats?

Local favorite New York Giants might be out of the running for the 2013 NFL playoffs. But the New England Patriots are in — who will they face?

If you're a New York Giants fan you're probably not looking forward to the NFL's Wildcard Weekend.

If you're a Pittsburgh Steelers fan like me, the season has been over for a couple of weeks (although the win at home during last week's season closer against rival Cleveland was a decent way to end a frustrating, injury plagued year for Steelers fans).

I'd mention the Jets, but why would I, really? I think their fans suffer enough already, no?

However if you're rooting for the New England Patriots or any other division playoff team (Broncos, 49ers and Falcons) you're going to have eyes glued to the TV this weekend starting with Saturday's first wildcard game where the Cincinnati Bengals plays the Houston Texans at 4:30 p.m. 

So if your heart is still in the 2012-13 season, here's a list of this weekend's games.

    4:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 5, on NBC
