NFL playoff bracket: Matchups for divisional round

Sunday January 8th, 2017

With the Steelers’ win over the Dolphins, the next round of the NFL playoffs is just about set. 

As the top seed in the AFC, the Patriots will face the lowest remaining seed, which is the Texans. That leaves the Chiefs playing host to the Steelers. The Seahawks will travel to Atlanta for a date against the Falcons, while the Cowboys will host the winner of Sunday’s Giants-Packers game.
