Considered by many to be the best weekend of pro football during the year, the Divisional Playoff Round is here for the 2012-13 NFL season. While teams such as Green Bay and Houston look to continue their playoff run, the top-seeded teams in each conference are just getting into postseason action for the first time.

New England plays in its first playoff game since losing to the New York Giants in the Super Bowl last February. Denver plays its first postseason game with Peyton Manning under center. Atlanta has a lot to prove after a short playoff stay last year, and San Francisco (and coach Jim Harbaugh) are pinning their hopes on a quarterback who has started just seven pro games.

Here are my picks for this weekend's games.
