National Football League announces Patriots' playoff date and time

As far as the rest of the teams that will have to play on Wild Card Weekend, here is how the schedule looks.

If the Patriots do advance to the AFC Championship Game, it will be played on Sunday, Jan. 20, at 6:40 p.m. Although New England has been fairly inconsistent this season, the case could be made its path to the Super Bowl is easier than New Orleans' given the competition level in the NFC. Dallas will need a pass-run balance, through quarterback Dak Prescott and running back Ezekiel Elliott, in order to move the ball consistently against Seattle's defense, especially since Dallas allowed the second-most sacks (56) in the NFL. They have not been very good on the road (4-4), allowing an average of 25.8 points per game in their past four away games.

The Colts and Texans split their two matchups in the 2018 regular season, with each team stealing a road victory.

That first game, of course, will feature the Colts after Sunday night's game.

Andrew Luck was sacked a league-fewest 18 times and maintaining that protection will be critical against the Texans, who count on pass rushers Jadeveon Clowney and J.J. Watt to make up for middling coverage. Though West Coast teams are typically thought to struggle in games where they have to travel east, the reverse has been true for the Chargers this season. It has a hard time protecting quarterback Deshaun Watson, who has been sacked a league-high 62 times this season (Luck, for comparison, was brought to the ground just 18 times).

Perhaps the biggest matchup is the Colts' secondary against Houston receiver DeAndre Hopkins. The total has gone UNDER in five of the Colts' last seven games, with an average combined score of 39.71 points.
