With Wildcard Weekend completed, we now know next week’s matchups.

Baltimore stamped its ticket for New England and a date with the top-seeded Patriots January 10 with an upset win over the Steelers. With their win over the Bengals, the Colts are headed to Denver to take on the Broncos on January 11.

In the NFC, the Cowboy’s win over the Lions puts them against the Packers on January 11. That leaves the Seahawks with the Panthers on January 10 after Carolina’s win over the Cardinals.

Here’s a look at the playoff picture. (The “highest-seeded” team refers to the lower numerical seed and the “lowest-seeded” team refers the higher numerical seed.)
