The Washington Redskins will host the Seattle Seahawks in the Wild Card round of the 2013 NFL playoffs on Sunday, Jan. 6 at 4:30 p.m. ET.

Sunday's game will mark the first time since the 2007 season that the Redskins will make an appearance in the NFL's second season. Coincidentally, that game also featured a matchup against the Seahawks in the Wild Card round. Washington lost the game by a final score of 35-14.

Sunday's game will be broadcast nationally on Fox and will be the final game of Wild Card weekend.

The other NFC playoff game will feature a rematch of the Minnesota Vikings against the Green Bay Packers. The two NFC North Division rivals split the season series, with the Vikings' winning the most recent meeting in Week 17 to clinch the final Wild Card spot in the NFC.

The game will be broadcast nationally on Saturday, Jan. 5 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.

In the AFC, the Cincinnati Bengals and Houston Texans will kick off Wild Card weekend on Saturday afternoon at 4:30 p.m. ET on NBC.

The Indianapolis Colts and Baltimore Ravens will act as the opening game on Sunday. The game will begin at 1 p.m. ET on CBS.
