NFL playoff bracket update and Sunday Divisional playoff schedule

We are halfway through the Divisional round of the NFL Playoffs. Here is what is still to come.

The first two of the four NFL Playoffs Divisional Round games have been completed, with the home teams - and lower seeds - winning both games. That starts to set up the AFC Championship and NFC Championship games for next weekend, while also giving us games to watch later today. In a weekend often considered the best on the NFL schedule, there are two good games on the docket for tonight.

First, the fourth-seeded Green Bay Packers will face the top-seeded Dallas Cowboys on the NFC side of the bracket. The winner will advance to face the Atlanta Falcons, who won a Saturday meeting with the Seattle Seahawks. If the Cowboys win, the game will be in Dallas, with the game in Atlanta if the Packers win.

Then, on the AFC side, a game that was supposed to take place in the early afternoon but was moved to Sunday night due to weather concerns in Kansas and Missouri, the Kansas City Chiefs will host the Pittsburgh Steelers. Whichever team wins this game will travel next weekend to face the top-seeded New England Patriots, who beat the Houston Texans on Saturday.

Below, you will find the game/channel/online stream information for both the Packers at Cowboys and Steelers at Chiefs games, as well as the schedule for the rest of the Playoffs to include the Super Bowl in February.
