With the exception of Wild Card Saturday (both games on NBC), the order of games (conferences and times) from Wild Card Sunday (CBS & FOX), Divisional Playoff Weekend and Conference Championship Sunday are a reverse from the 2012 schedule.
One coincidence is that the Cincinnati-Houston Wild Card game on January 5 will play at the same time/date as it did last season (Saturday, 4:30 pm ET) as the first game of Wild Card Weekend.
