Falcons have playoff date, time

The Atlanta Falcons already knew where and know they know when they’ll play in the divisional round of the playoffs.

But they still don’t know who they’ll be playing.

The NFL just announced the schedule for the wild-card round and the divisional round of the playoffs. The Falcons will play Jan. 13 (a Sunday) at 1 p.m. ET. As we’ve known since the Falcons first clinched the No. 1 seed in the NFC, the game will be played in the Georgia Dome.

What still isn’t known is who the opponent will be. It could be Seattle or Minnesota or it could be the winner of Sunday night’s game between Washington and Dallas.

The team with the lowest seed remaining after the wild-card round will have to travel to Atlanta.
