The Philadelphia Eagles will host the Seattle Seahawks for the second time this season, but this time in the NFC Wild Card round of the 2020 NFL Playoffs. You can still buy tickets to Eagles vs. Seahawks at The Linc from StubHub HERE.
These teams last played each other in late-November, with the Seahawks getting a win in Philly. But, since then, both teams have had considerable changes to their offensive skill positions — the Eagles have loaded up with young talent (Greg Ward, Boston Scott and Josh Perkins) and the Seahawks have added veterans (Marshawn Lynch and Robert Turbin).
The key for Philadelphia will be to limit turnovers on offense, and for the defense to play with the same kind of energy from their Week 17 win over the Giants. Forced fumbles, sacks, and plenty of 3-and-outs will be critical in stopping Russell Wilson and an offense that always thrives with him at quarterback.
Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch the game.
