NFL Playoffs

It's playoff time in the NFL! Included in the three week excitement are the wild-card games, the divisional title games, and of course the grand prize, the Super Bowl.

The action started on Saturday, with the AFC Wild-card round. The Houstan Texans were pitted against rival team Cincinnati Bengals, in a thriller 19-13 win for the Texans. They will face Tom Brady and the New England Patriots next Sunday. The Baltimore Ravens played the Indianapolis Colts. Rookie QB Andrew Luck couldn't deliver the win for the Colts, who lost 24-9. Ravens' veteran Ray Lewis announced his retirement after this season, and said he was blessed to win his last game at home. The Ravens will face Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos next Saturday.

The NFC Wild-card round teams were the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings. Adrian Peterson didn't have what it took to beat out Aaron Rodgers, as the Packers defeated the Vikings 24-10. The Packers will face the San Francisco 49ers next Saturday. The Seattle Seahawks faced the Washington Redskins. Rookie QB RGIII led the 'Skins to two touchdowns, before his right knee gave out and he had to be carried off. Russell Wilson led the 'Hawks to deliver twenty-four unanswered points to be the only team in the wild-card round to win an away playoff game this year. They will play the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.

Who's going to win the AFC and NFC, then the Super Bowl?
