Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE

Two of the NFL's most storied franchises will meet on Saturday night, in the NFL's Divisional playoffs, as the San Francisco 49ers are set to play host to the Green Bay Packers.

Two of the NFL's most storied franchises will meet on Saturday night, in the NFL's Divisional playoffs, as the San Francisco 49ers are set to play host to the Green Bay Packers (5 p.m. PT, FOX).

As the No. 2 seed in the NFC, the 49ers received a bye week in the Wild Card round, and did not know their opponent until the Packers defeated the Vikings on Saturday night. If San Francisco advances past Green Bay, the Niners will either host the Seahawks in the NFC title game, or head to Atlanta to take on the Falcons. If the Packers advance, they, too, would either host the Seahawks or travel to Atlanta for the NFC title game.

Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos will get the NFL's Divisional round underway, when they host Ray Lewis and the Baltimore Ravens on Saturday (1 p.m. PT, CBS). If the Broncos win, they will host either New England or Houston in the AFC title game. If the Ravens pull off the upset, they'll head either to Foxboro for a rematch of last year's title game, or to Houston.

Sunday's action begins with the Seahawks and the Falcons (10 a.m. PT, FOX), as Russell Wilson and the Seahawks try to keep their fairy-tale season alive. If Matt Ryan and the top-seeded Falcons advance, they'll host the winner of the Green Bay-San Francisco game in the NFC title game. If the Seahawks pull off the upset, they'll head either to San Francisco or Green Bay, with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line.

Tom Brady and the Patriots will try to advance to the AFC title game for a second consecutive year, when they host the Houston Texans (1:30 p.m. PT, CBS). If the Patriots win, they'll either head to Denver or host Baltimore in the AFC title game. If Gary Kubiak's Texans pull off the upset, they'll either host Baltimore or head to Denver for a chance to head to the franchise's first-ever Super Bowl appearance.
