2013 NFL Playoffs: How, when, who, where to watch the wild card round

See also

As the final week of the 2013 NFL regular season has come to a close, the playoffs are now set and ready to go. There were some unexpected teams that succeeded, and others that happened to be left out, but it was a great final weekend of football that took place on Sunday, Dec. 29, 2013. Now, the schedule for the 2013 NFL Playoffs has been released and you've got to keep track of how, when, and where to watch.

A number of the games in the final week of the season were "Win Or Go Home," and it pushed some teams to the top of their divisions and others out of the playoffs entirely.

Below is a full television schedule for the wild card round of the 2013 NFL Playoffs - All times Eastern:

Saturday, Jan. 4, 2013

  • Kansas City Chiefs at Indianapolis Colts - 4:35 p.m. on NBC
  • New Orleans Saints at Philadelphia Eagles - 8:10 p.m. on NBC

Sunday, Jan. 5, 2013

  • San Diego Chargers at Cincinnati Bengals - 1:05 p.m. on CBS
  • San Francisco 49ers at Green Bay Packers - 4:40 p.m. on FOX

Just about every single game on Sunday had some kind of importance to the seeding for the playoffs or which teams got in or something. The full seeding for both the NFC and AFC is listed below with the top two seeds in both conferences having a first-round bye.


  1. Denver Broncos 13-3
  2. New England Patriots 12-4
  3. Cincinnati Bengals 11-5
  4. Indianapolis Colts 11-5
  5. Kansas City Chiefs 11-5
  6. San Diego Chargers 9-7


  1. Seattle Seahawks 13-3
  2. Carolina Panthers 12-4
  3. Philadelphia Eagles 10-6
  4. Green Bay Packers 8-7-1
  5. San Francisco 49ers 12-4
  6. New Orleans Saints 11-5

Once the wild card round is over, it will set up the divisional round in which the top two teams in each conference will play against the winners from the first week. The television schedule, including times, for the second round will be revealed once the first round is over.
