2013 NFL playoff schedule and bracket: Patriots host Texans Sunday

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The second-seeded Patriots will host the Texans on Sunday in the AFC Divisional Round on Sunday.

The New England Patriots will host the Houston Texans for the second time this season when the two teams square off in the AFC Divisional Round on Sunday at 4:30 p.m. ET. The Texans earned their spot against the Patriots by defeating the Cincinnati Bengals 19-13 this past Saturday.

New England and Houston met back on Dec. 10 at Gillette Stadium, where the Patriots dominated the Texans 42-14. Houston entered that game 11-1, and the loss began a late season slide that saw the Texans lose three of their last four games. Thanks to Houston's late season funk, New England was able to grab the second bye in the AFC by also finishing with a 12-4 record.

The Saturday AFC game will be between the Baltimore Ravens and Denver Broncos. Over in the NFC, the San Francisco 49ers will host the Green Bay Packers on Saturday, while the Atlanta Falcons will be at home against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.
