NFL Playoffs Schedule 2015: Complete Bracket, Times And Television Listings Set For Postseason

The 2015 NFL Playoff matchups have finally been set. We know which teams will have a first-round bye. We know which teams will be a part of Wild Card weekend, as well as which teams will be awaiting the winners in the Divisional Round. The road to Super Bowl XLIX may very well have to go through Foxboro and Seattle, as the New England Patriots and defending champion Seahawks earned home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. The Denver Broncos and Green Bay Packers were the other two teams to clinch a first-round bye with wins on Sunday, and will thus get the opportunity to rest aging or injured star quarterbacks. With two games each on Saturday and Sunday that feature plenty of star-power, here is a look at the complete schedule for the 2015 NFL Playoffs, leading all the way up to Super Bowl 49 on February 1 in Arizona:
