NFL playoffs: Falcons updated schedule, dates, times for NFC, AFC divisional round

Posted Jan 9, 2018

Here’s the complete – and updated – NFL playoff schedule

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. – The Falcons continue to roll and their next stop is Philadelphia for a showdown with the top-seeded Eagles on Saturday.

Since a 20-17 setback on the road to the Panthers back on Nov. 5, Atlanta has won seven of its last nine games – including a 26-13 win over the third-seeded Rams in the wild-card round.

Should the Falcons (11-6) get past the Eagles (13-3), they’ll face the winner of Sunday’s Saints-Vikings game. Because the sixth-seeded Falcons would be the lower seed in either potential matchup, they would travel to either Minneapolis or New Orleans. Here’s the complete NFL playoff schedule below:
