After 17 weeks of grueling action on the gridiron, the NFL playoffs are set:

In the early game on Saturday, the Chiefs take on the Texans. The Chiefs have won 10 consecutive games while the Texans won the embarrassingly bad AFC South to earn a home game. The Chiefs started out 1-5 and lost Jamaal Charles early in the year, so there turnaround is even more impressive.

In the late game, it's a rivalry renewed as the bad blood between the Steelers and Bengals comes into the playoffs. The Steelers got in after the Bills beat the Jets, but they may be the most dangerous team in the AFC. The Bengals will still likely be without quarterback Andy Dalton.

On Sunday, the Seahawks roll into Minnesota, where they already dismantled the Vikings this season. The Hawks are 10-6 and are coming off a beatdown of Arizona, maybe the NFLs best team.

In the late game on Sunday, the Packers limp into Washington. The Redskins are the only home favorite of the weekend.
