I love that these postgame quarterback and/or head coach pictures so reliably exist whenever I look for one.

The Philadelphia Eagles won't play their opening round playoff game until Sunday, but there are a pair of games to be played on Saturday, one of which will be of interest to those of you who hate the Dallas Cowboys, which should be everyone, frankly.

In the 4:35 p.m. game, the Frank Reich-led Indianapolis Colts will head to Houston to take on Deshaun Watson and the Texans. In the 8:15 p.m. game, The Cowboys will host the Seattle Seahawks. No matter what the Eagles do on Sunday, if the Cowboys lose their matchup to Seattle, their season will be over before the Birds'.

Both home teams are favored, but the small spreads indicate that Vegas thinks that the road teams are better. The Texans are favored by 1.5 points, while the Cowboys are favored by 2 points.

In case you missed our wildcard round picks, you can find them here. Feel free to discuss the first day of the NFL playoffs below:
