The New England Patriots host the Houston Texans at 4:30 p.m. Sunday in the AFC Divisional Round. Here’s a roundup of where and when to catch all the NFL playoff action this weekend.
The divisional round of the NFL playoffs begins this weekend in Denver when the Broncos host the Baltimore Ravens at 4:30 p.m. Saturday. Locally, the New England Patriots host the Houston Texans Sunday at Gillette Stadium. Kick-off in Foxborough is scheduled for 4:30 p.m. Patriots fans hoping for another AFC Championship game in Foxborough will be tuning in Saturday to cheer on the Ravens against Peyton Manning and the Broncos while fans wanting to see a Brady-Manning showdown with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line will be favoring the Broncos Saturday. Of course, in either scenario, the Patriots need to knock off the Houston Texans Sunday to advance. On the NFC side of the playoff bracket, the Green Bay Packers travel to San Francisco…

Tickets to the Jan. 13 AFC Divisional Playoff game in Foxborough go on sale to the general public on Monday, Jan. 7.
Hosting playoff games in Foxborough used to be rarity for the New England Patriots and its fans prior to the Robert Kraft era. In fact, the Patriots hosted just one playoff game in the first 34 years of the franchise's history - a loss to the Houston Oilers in 1978 - prior to Kraft buying the team in 1994. Since then, the Patriots have qualified for the playoffs 14 times, including 12 times as AFC East division champions. With a 12-4 regular season record in 2012, the Patriots claimed their fourth consecutive division title and enter this year’s playoffs as the second seed in the AFC. It is the fourth time in franchise history that the team has earned the second seed. What's better is that in three of those seasons the Patriots advanced to…

Our thoughts on what the New England Patriots might do in today's NFL Draft.
With the NFL Draft set to kick off this evening, local Patch editors (and rabid Patriots fans) Jeffrey Pickette and Mike Gleason sat down to discuss what the local team might do this year. Both were asked to consider a number of issues for this year's draft. Their responses follow. What do you think is the most interesting thing about this year’s draft? Mike Gleason: I think the lack of a slam-dunk quarterback is very interesting this year. All of this year’s prospects have fairly serious red flags. Auburn’s Cam Newton is one of the most suspect number-one guys in years — some think he was the product of a very friendly, one-read system in college, and his mechanics aren’t ideal for the pro game. Jeffrey Pickette: For me, it’s the lack of …

Most importantly the Patriots won last night - but there's more.
1. The town meeting postponement was certainly worth it for Patriots fans, as New England defeated the New York Jets last night by a final score of 45-3. The meeting will now be held at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday at Coakley Middle School. 2. The Mustang basketball and ice hockey teams have full scrimmage schedules this week as they prepare to kick off the winter sports season. Be sure to follow Patch for your Norwood sports coverage. 3. Entry forms for the Recreation Department's holiday house decorating contest must be completed by Dec. 17. If your house is already decorated, snap a picture and send it to Patch! 4. The Board of Selectmen will meet tonight at 7:00 p.m. in the town hall as usual. If you are not inclined to brave the cold you can…

Due to this evening's Monday Night Football match up, tonight's meeting has been postponed to Thursday.
The Special Town Meeting originally scheduled for 7:30 p.m. today will be held on Thursday at the same time at Coakley Middle School. The meeting was postponed by Town Moderator David Hern Jr. at the urging of the Board of Selectmen. At last week's meeting, the board and Town General Manager John Carroll discussed that with the New England Patriots playing the New York Jets tonight it might be difficult to achieve a quorum for the meeting. The selectmen do not have power to postpone town meetings, but issued a letter Wednesday morning to each of the Town Meeting members explaining their position and urging the postponement. Several articles are on the agenda for what is now Thursday's meeting, including the Norwood Fire Department budget …
