In the day’s opener at Georgia Dome in Atlanta (11-5), the Seattle Seahawks (10-5-1) make the trip to face-off with the Atlanta Falcons.

Kick-off time for this clash is set for 4:35 PM ET and coverage will be live on FOX. You can also stream the action on Fox Sports GO.

In the only previous playoff meeting between these two teams, the Falcons squandered a big lead and needed a late field goal from Matt Bryant to secure a 30-28 victory in 2012.

ESPN’s Football Power Index is again favouring Matt Ryan and Co. to beat Russell Wilson and the Seahawks on Saturday and the hosts have been given a very healthy advantage.

According to ESPN’s FPI, Atlanta has a 72.9 percent chance to win at home against Seattle.

This weekend’s matchup will see Ryan searching for only his second playoff win, having gone 1-4 in the previous five attempts.

At the same time, Wilson, who was only a rookie when he first battle against the Falcons five-years-ago, has already improved to 8-3 in postseason play and a Super Bowl ring on his resume.

Meanwhile, in the other NFC divisional-round playoff game on Sunday, the Dallas Cowboys (13-3) will entertain the Green Bay Packers (10-6) at AT&T Stadium in Arlington.

Live coverage of this game is set for 4:40 PM ET on FOX. You can also stream the action on Fox Sports GO.

The Cowboys are back in action this weekend after a bye in the last round and it will be interesting to see how rookies Ezekiel Elliott and Dak Prescott will handle the pressure in a win or go home game.

The offensive duo were outstanding during the regular season, with running back Elliott rushing for a league-best 1,631 yards and had 15 touchdowns to his name.

Standout quarterback Prescott was equally as impressive in his first season in the NFL, passing for 3,667 yards with 23 touchdowns for an 82.6 QBR.

The 23-year-old has completed 311-of-459 passes for 67.8 percent.

At the other end, there will be a veteran quarterback in Aaron Rodgers, who seems to have found his best form of the season at the right time.

After calling out his teammates during a poor midseason run where they lost four straight games and five of six, Rodgers has put up some remarkable stats.

According to ESPN Stats and Information, the quarterback has passed for 19 touchdowns without a single interception in the seven-game win streak and he will be the key to any success for the Packers.

Rodgers, who is led the NFL in passing yards per game (362) and total touchdowns (40), will have lots of weapons to support him, including the now-healthy Randall Cobb.

He, however, will be without his top target in Jordy Nelson, who has been ruled out of the game with a rib injury he picked up in the win against the New York Giants.
