NFL Playoff Divisional Round 2017, schedule, and TV channels

Everything you need to know about watching the games this weekend.

NFL: Atlanta Falcons at Carolina Panthers Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

Let’s be honest, the wild card round was terrible. The only game that was even a little bit entertaining was Giants vs. Packers, and it was only worth watching for about a half. This weekend should be very different- well outside of Texans vs. Patriots at least.

My favorite game of the weekend is the first one. I think Seattle vs. Atlanta has some real shootout potential. My boy, Julio Jones, is going to go ham. If you are into the DFS thing, you should fire him up.

The Sunday games are pretty good as well. The weather looks to be a mess in Kansas City. The total in that game has already come down from 46 to 43.5. Don’t be surprised if it ends up around 41 by kickoff if the forecast doesn’t change.

Green Bay at Dallas will be really fun. The Packers are the hottest team in the league right now. The Cowboys have been the best team in the NFC all year. Green Bay has all of the momentum right now. Will the bye week cause Dallas to come out flat?
