The NFL will officially open the Playoffs on Saturday with a day full of AFC matchups. The afternoon game will feature the Kansas City Chiefs at the Houston Texans, while the night game will be the Pittsburgh Steelers at the Cincinnati Bengals. With the NFL's Playoffs being a lose and you go home affair, unlike other sports which play series in each round, injuries could mean the difference between advancing to the Divisional round, or making the briefest of appearances in the postseason tournament.
