The Philadelphia Eagles host the Seattle Seahawks in the Wild Card round of the 2020 NFL playoffs. The game is scheduled for Sunday, January 5th, with kickoff set for 4:40 p.m. ET. The game will air on NBC. The Divisional round matchup for the winner will be determined based on who wins the Saints-Vikings wild card game.
The Eagles finished the regular season 9-7, clinching the NFC East. They beat Dallas in Week 16 to put themselves in the driver’s seat to clinch in Week 17. It was not a pretty season, but they beat the Giants in their regular season finale to clinch the division. Injuries have been a huge issue for Philadelphia, and that will be something to track this week as the practice participation reports arrive.
The Seahawks finished the regular season 11-5 and clinched the NFC’s top wild card berth. They clinched a playoff berth in Week 15, and had a chance to clinch the NFC West and the three seed in Week 17. The 49ers stopped them just short of the goal line to secure the division and No. 1 seed.
