When the Raiders-Broncos and Chiefs-Chargers games went final, we learned who the Houston Texans would be hosting at NRG Stadium in the wild card round of the 2017 NFL Playoffs next weekend. Now we know when the rematch between the Texans and Raiders will be kicking off:

There it is, Texans fans. The good guys will look to advance to the divisional round with a win over the Raiders on Saturday afternoon. Schedule next weekend accordingly.

UPDATE: Here’s the complete schedule for the first and second round of the 2017 NFL Playoffs:

Should the Texans beat the Raiders on Saturday afternoon, they’ll either play the Patriots at 7:15 p.m. CST on Saturday, January 13th or the Chiefs at 12:05 p.m. CST on Sunday, January 14th. Who the Texans would play in the divisional round would depend on whether the Steelers beat the Dolphins in the other AFC Wild Card game, as the Patriots will host the lowest AFC seed to advance out of the wild card round. In other words, if the Texans and Steelers win, Houston would play the Patriots; if the Texans and Dolphins win, Houston would head to Kansas City.
