Houston drops to the No. 3 seed in the AFC, and will face the No. 6 seed Cincinnati Bengals in the Wild Card round. The No. 4 seed Baltimore Ravens will host the No. 5 seed Colts in the weekend's other AFC playoff game.

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 winner of the Redskins versus Cowboys Sunday night game will be the No. 4 seed and will host the No. 5 seed Seattle Seahawks.
