NFL Playoff Divisional Round 2017, schedule, and TV channels

He led the National Football League with 40 touchdown passes this season and hasn't thrown an interception since November 13.

The only question is, will all four still be playing at this time next week? The team scored 24 points, tied for their third-lowest point total this season.

Forty-two years ago this week, the Steelers won the first of six Super Bowls.

The game, held two days before Christmas in 1972, is known for one thing: the catch made by Franco Harris that won the game. It pops up unexpectedly in the form of eight defensive and special-teams touchdowns, a plus-16 turnover differential, and some well-timed trick plays. But that was then and this is now and I think that Seattle will run the ball much better and try and dictate the pace in the game. Against the Giants last week, who had the league's second-best scoring defense during the regular season, Rodgers was a magician in the pocket, and he pulled off another Hail Mary score to end the first half.

Date and time: Saturday, 8:15 p.m.

Comparatively, the Packers are perhaps the hottest team in football after winning seven straight games. Houston couldn't defeat New England without Brady, and Brady is back and on fire. After returning from a four-game suspension, Brady lost just one time during his 12 starts, a 31-24 setback to the Seattle Seahawks in in mid-November.

On the other side of the field, Houston reached the divisional round with a 27-14 win over an Oakland team playing without their starting quarterback, Derek Carr.

Brock Osweiler, the Texans $72 million quarterback who was benched for undrafted Tom Savage, has regained his starting role due to the concussion Savage suffered in Week 17.

Cowboys' Dak Prescott built to beat Packers' Aaron Rodgers, Michael Irvin says
The Dallas Cowboys and Green Bay Packers have met in some of the most memorable games in the two franchises storied histories. However, Hansen is not allowing the Cowboys' 30-16 victory at Green Bay on October 16 to affect his decision.

Nate's prediction: Upsets can happen, but not in this one.

Sunday's game at Kansas City will be the 59th playoff game for the Steelers. A couple of this weekend's divisional round games look like they could be hotly contested matchups that could go down to the wire. Only the San Francisco 49ers have played in as many conference championship games. The correct read was that the Dolphins' 30-15 win had little carryover, because a sweltering October day in Miami has no resemblance to an icy January playoff day in Pittsburgh. I really like the Falcons to win, and win comfortably.

The Steelers have a high-powered offense and a good mix of run and pass, featuring star receiver Antonio Brown and the rushing of Le'Veon Bell.

The Chiefs will counter with the always-steady Alex Smith at QB, a durable workhorse at RB in Spencer Ware and a formidable defense that helped them beat three of the top 10 offenses in the NFL (Falcons, Saints and Raiders twice). Not only have they allowed the fewest plays of any team this season, they have also limited opposing offenses to just 301 yards per game. Pittsburgh linebacker James Harrison joked this week about forgetting the 43-14 romp over the Chiefs in Week 4. With Jacoby Brissett at quarterback earlier this season they beat the Texans 27-0. But the Falcons run the ball much better at home, and the crowd won't be against them. The line has since matriculated across even, now favoring Kansas City, as it should. Yes, Zeke Elliott and Dak Prescott were incredible this season, but they're rookies. "You tip your cap to them for that performance", Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin said. In their first 39 years of existence, the Steelers failed to win a single playoff game.

GREEN BAY +4.5, over Dallas: Aaron Rodgers plus points?

Outside of the red-hot play of Aaron Rodgers and the Packers passing attack, all of the signs point to a Dallas victory here.

The rest, as they say, is history. Prescott turned in one of the best seasons ever from a rookie quarterback and Elliott has been almost unstoppable behind an elite offensive round.

Williams and the Cowboys earned the NFC's No. 1 seed and home field advantage throughout the playoffs with a 13-3 regular season record and will open up the postseason hosting the Green Bay Packers Sunday at 3:40 p.m. CT on FOX.
