2013 NFL Playoff picture: Broncos, Falcons earn No. 1 seeds, first round byes

CHirs Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL Playoff matchups are virtually set, with the Denver Broncos earning the No. 1 seed in the AFC and the Atlanta Falcons earning the top seed in the NFC. The Redskins and Cowboys play Sunday night for the last NFC postseason spot.

The matchups are now virtually set for the NFL Playoffs after Sunday's Week 17 regular season finales.

In the AFC, the Denver Broncos earned the No. 1 seed courtesy of their win coupled with the Houston Texans' loss and will have a bye next weekend. The New England Patriots earned the other bye in the AFC with a victory over the Dolphins on Sunday afternoon.

Next weekend will see the No. 3 seed Texans (12-4) take on the No. 6 seed Cincinnati Bengals (10-6). The No. 4 seed Baltimore Ravens (10-6) will host the No. 5 Indianapolis Colts (11-5) in the weekend's other AFC playoff game.

The NFC Playoff picture still has one hole in it, as the winner of the Redskins versus Cowboys Sunday night game will be the No. 4 seed and host the No. 5 seed Seattle Seahawks.

The Atlanta Falcons are the top seed in the NFC, earning a bye next weekend, with the San Francisco 49ers taking the second NFC playoff position. The Minnesota Vikings 37-34 win over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday means a rematch in next weekend's NFC wild card round, as No. 3 seed Green Bay will host No. 6 seed Minnesota.
