2013 NFL playoff schedule: Redskins, Seahawks conclude Wild Card weekend

The NFL's Wild Card playoff weekend ends with the Redskins hosting the Seahawks on late Sunday afternoon.

Wild Card weekend in the NFL gets underway Saturday and will end with the Washington Redskins hosting the Seattle Seahawks on late Sunday afternoon.

But first, the AFC South division champion Houston Texans and Cincinnati Bengals begin the weekend's festivities in Houston on Saturday afternoon, with kickoff set for 4:30 p.m. ET. The game will be televised on NBC.

On Saturday night on NBC, the Minnesota Vikings travel to Lambeau Field for a Week 17 rematch with the Green Bay Packers. Minnesota defeated Green Bay at home in the regular season's last week, 37-34, to clinch a playoff berth and set up this NFC North division showdown. The Packers were 7-1 at home this season, and kickoff is set for 8 p.m. ET.

Sunday's first contest features the AFC North champion Baltimore Ravens hosting the Indianapolis Colts. Aside from it being the postseason, both teams should have plenty to play for, as Baltimore will take the field with the knowledge that this season will be linebacker Ray Lewis's last. And the Colts, as they've done for most of the year, will carry with them the emotional inspiration provided through head coach Chuck Pagano's recovery from leukemia and return to the sidelines. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. ET and can be seen on CBS.

The Redskins and Seahawks then take center stage, with kickoff scheduled for 4:30 p.m. ET. Backfield duos featuring rookie quarterbacks -- Robert Griffin III and running back Alfred Morris for Washington and Russell Wilson and running back Marshawn Lynch for Seattle -- will square off, along with high-pressuring defenses. This contest will be televised on Fox.
