Cam Newton threw for 198 yards and two touchdowns, Carolina's defense set an NFL record for fewest yards (77) allowed in a postseason game, and the Panthers defeated the Arizona Cardinals 27-16 on Saturday.

The Panthers will play at top-seeded Seattle next weekend if Dallas beats Detroit on Sunday. If the Lions win, the Panthers play at Green Bay.

In Saturday's second game, the rarely flustered Joe Flacco tossed two second-half touchdowns and the Baltimore Ravens dominated the Pittsburgh Steelers 30-17 in the AFC wild-card game.

Baltimore heads to top-seeded New England next Saturday.

Today's games take Cincinnati to Indianapolis and Detroit to Dallas.
