To kick off the divisional round of the playoffs, the Atlanta Falcons will host the Seattle Seahawks. Earlier in the season the two teams faced off in Seattle, with the Seahawks coming out victorious, 26-24. This game will be played in the Georgia Dome, where the Falcons posted a 5-3 record during the regular season. MVP candidate Matt Ryan will try to get the Falcons their first playoff win since the 2012 season, when they downed the Seahawks.
To cap off the night, the New England Patriots will face off against the Houston Texans. Houston managed to win their way to the divisional round after defeating Connor Cook at the Oakland Raiders in the Wild Card round. They’ll have a much tougher assignment this week, as the Patriots have only lost two games all year. New England has won their last seven games by an average of 16.1 points.
