NFL Playoffs Schedule, Wild-Card Weekend: Tim Tebow Takes Aim At Steelers On Sunday

After a couple interesting games on Saturday, the NFL Playoffs returns on Sunday with two tantalizing matchups. One involves one of the Washington Redskins' biggest rivals. The other involves Tim Tebow. Here is your complete TV schedule for Sunday's Wild-Card Weekend matchups.

No. 5 Atlanta Falcons vs. No. 4 New York Giants: Big Blue rebounded from their crushing loss to the Redskins in Week 15 to win their final two games and slip in as the NFC East's champion, while the Falcons have basically been ensured this spot since Thanksgiving. This matchup is intriguing if only because it pits the league's most consistent team against its most inconsistent. That makes this one an impossible game to project, but it should be fun nonetheless. (FOX, 1 p.m). For more on the Falcons, visit The Falcoholic and SB Nation Atlanta.

No. 5 Pittsburgh Steelers vs. No. 4 Denver Broncos: Tim Tebow's magic wore off in the last three weeks, all Denver losses, but maybe he was just saving it for a game that really mattered. That day has finally arrived. The Steelers are arguably the strongest AFC No. 5 seed in a while, but they come into this one banged-up and having limped a bit to the finish line. Can the Broncos really steal this one? Stranger things (see 2010 Seahawks) have happened. (4:30 p.m., CBS). For more on the Steelers, visit Behind The Steel Curtain and SB Nation Pittsburgh.
