 SCOREBOARD
Sunday, Jan. 13
Seattle at Atlanta, 1 p.m. The Seahawks (12-5) have won six in a row, erased its reputation as a road flop with three straight away victories - including last week at Washington. Meanwhile, the Falcons (13-3) are the NFC's top seed but are 0-3 in the postseason under coach Mike Smith and with Matt Ryan at quarterback.
---
Houston at New England, 4:30 p.m. The Texans (13-4) return to Foxborough, where their late-season spiral began with a 42-14 rout by the Patriots. They then lost twice more in the final three games. This is only the fourth postseason game in the Texans' 11-season NFL history, while Tom Brady would surpass Joe Montana for most postseason victories by a quarterback if he can lead the Patriots (12-4) to a win.

He finished 28 for 43 for 290 yards and accounted for all three Denver turnovers.
