For the first time since January 2014, the Eagles will play in a playoff game today. That’s pretty cool. It’ll be even cooler if the Eagles are able to come out of the game with their first playoff win since January 2009.

As we all know, Philadelphia is set to host the Atlanta Falcons in a Divisional Round matchup. You may have heard the Eagles are home underdogs in this game.

The reason the Eagles aren’t favored is due to their quarterback situation. Carson Wentz is out for the season and Nick Foles is starting under center. Foles struggled in his last two starts with Philadelphia so it’s hard to feel super optimistic about him. Making matters more challenging is that Atlanta’s defense has played well recently.

It’s easier to feel good about an Eagles defense that’s played well at home over the past two seasons. Philadelphia will face a Falcons offense that features a number of weapons but has ultimately underachieved under new offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian.

Many people aren’t even giving the Eagles a chance to win this game, which is silly. Winning won’t be easy for Philadelphia, but it’s not like they don’t have things going for them. The Eagles will have crowd noise on their side. The Falcons have had to travel while Philadelphia has been resting. And so on.

We’ll see if the Eagles can pull off the “upset” against Matt Ryan and the reigning NFC Champs.

Here's everything you need to know about how to watch the game.
