Gary Kubiak and the Houston Texans have a second date against Tom Brady and the New England Patriots -- and this time, it comes in the Divisional Round of the NFL playoffs.

Houston will take on New England on Sunday, Jan. 13 (3:30 p.m. CT, CBS), with a trip to the AFC's title game on the line. If the Texans are able to upset the Patriots, they'll either host the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC title game, or head to Denver to take on the Broncos. If Brady and company advance, the Pats will either host the Ravens or head to Denver, with a chance to head to a second consecutive Super Bowl.

Baltimore and Denver will kick the Divisional Round off on Saturday (3:30 p.m. CT, CBS), as Ray Lewis will try to extend his career by another week.

Patrick Willis and the San Francisco 49ers will play host to the Green Bay Packers (7 p.m. CT, FOX) on Saturday night, as 49ers attempt to return to the NFC title game for a second consecutive year.

Seattle and Atlanta will kick off Sunday's action (12 p.m. CT, FOX), as Russell Wilson and the Seahawks will attempt to keep their fairy tale season alive against Matt Ryan and the top-seeded Falcons. If Atlanta wins, the Falcons will play host to the winner of the Green Bay-San Francisco game. If the Seahawks win, they'll head either to Green Bay or San Francisco for the NFC title game.
