NFL Playoff Schedule 2013: Falcons, Seahawks meet in Sunday's early game

Kevin C. Cox

The Atlanta Falcons are set to take on the Seattle Seahawks in the first playoff game of the day Sunday. Can they stem Seattle's hot streak?

The Atlanta Falcons will be kicking off Sunday's Divisional round action against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. Kickoff is at 1 p.m. ET. The second game will pit the Houston Texans against the New England Patriots, with kickoff at Gillette Stadium set for 4:30 p.m. ET.

The Falcons enter the weekend as 2.5-point favorites over a Seahawks squad that is arguably playing as well as any team in the league at the moment. While Russell Wilson and Co. may be difficult to slow down, the Falcons do have the benefit of home field advantage. Atlanta is 7-1 at the Georgia Dome this season. All five of the Seahawks' losses have come on the road.
