Here is a look at the final NFL playoffs seeding:

The Eagles haven't been in the post-season since they faced the Green Bay Packers in the opening round during the 2010 Playoffs. Philly hasn't a won playoff game since 2008 when they made a run to the NFC Championship Game but ultimately lost to the Arizona Cardinals.

It will be a big week of preparation for this team as they prepare to take on a talented New Orleans squad at home.

But for now... playoffs!
