2013 NFL Divisional playoff schedule: Patriots to host Texans on Sunday afternoon

USA TODAY Sports

The New England Patriots are set to host the Houston Texans on Sunday afternoon for the final game of the NFL's divisional round.

The New England Patriots will host the Houston Texans on Sunday afternoon for the final game of the NFL's Divisional round. This is the second time the Patriots will have hosted the Texans this time. The last time was in Week 14 when the Patriots defeated Houston, 42-14. They'll be looking to recreate those results on Sunday.

If the Patriots win on Sunday afternoon, they'll either travel to Denver to face the No. 1-seed Broncos, or they'll stay in the Northeast and host the No. 4-seed Baltimore Ravens. If the Texans win, they'll face the same situation. The Patriots are heavy favorites to head to the AFC Championship next weekend, though.

The No. 3-seed Texans and No. 2-seed Patriots are set for kickoff at 4:30 p.m. ET on Sunday afternoon. The game will be nationally broadcast on CBS.
