Wild-card round gets going as drive to Super Bowl begins

The drive to the Super Bowl begins this weekend as the NFL postseason gets going.

A dozen teams still have hopes to play for the Lombardi Trophy in Houston on Feb. 5.

On Saturday, the playoffs open as Oakland travels to Houston and Detroit heads to Seattle.

This is the fourth time the Texans have opened the playoffs as the early game on Saturday. And the Raiders have returned to the postseason after a lengthy absence, but are starting a rookie at quarterback.

Despite making the postseason for the second time in three seasons, Detroit is looking for its first playoff win since 1992. And the Seahawks are in the playoffs for the fifth straight season.
