The NFL Wildcard Weekend has reached the halfway point. The NFL Playoff bracket is updated to reflect the first two results.

The NFL Playoffs are underway, with the first two of four WIldcard games played on Saturday. The playoff bracket in the NFL is not a straight-forward one, with teams matched up in the Divisional round based on their seeding. That means once Wildcard games are complete, we can start to figure out which team is traveling where for the next set of playoff games.

On Saturday, the Houston Texans beat the Oakland Raiders, while the Seattle Seahawks won their game against the Detroit Lions. That allows us to update the potential Divisional round match ups for next weekend - including the now locked in Seahawks at Falcons game. Later today, the Miami Dolphins and Pittsburgh Steelers will settle the AFC side of the bracket, while the New York Giants and Green Bay Packers will finalize the NFC side.

The playoff schedule with the update for the results from Saturday is below:
