Sunday's Game Will Determine Falcons' Opponent

The Falcons will have to wait until the end of Sunday's 4:30 p.m. ET game between No. 4 Washington and No. 5 Seattle to find out who they'll play in their 1p.m. divisional round game on Sunday, Jan. 13 at the Georgia Dome.

As the No. 1 seed in the NFC, the Falcons will face the lowest remaining seed after this weekend's wildcard round games. With the No. 6 Minnesota Vikings losing to the No. 3 Green Bay Packers on Saturday night, it assures the Falcons that their opponent for next week's game will come out of Sunday's game between the Redskins and Seahawks.
