Dates, times set for playoff games

The NFL just released the schedule for the first round of the playoffs.

The New Orleans Saints will be the first NFC South team to play in the postseason. The third-seeded Saints will host the Detroit Lions at 8 p.m. ET on Saturday.

The Atlanta Falcons will play Sunday at 1 p.m. ET. We don’t know the exact venue or opponent just yet — but the game will be either in East Rutherford, N.J., or Dallas because the NFC East champion will host that game. At the moment, it’s looking like the Falcons will be visiting the New York Giants, who lead the Cowboys 21-0 at halftime of Sunday night’s game.
