First, it should be noted that the winner of this evening’s matchup between the No. 4 seed Philadelphia Eagles and the No. 5 seed Seattle Seahawks will now play against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field in the divisional round. The Vikings are locked in to playing the No. 1 seed San Francisco 49ers next weekend.
It’s also worth nothing that the possibility of an NFC Championship Game in Philly is still alive. Such a scenario would involve the Vikings beating the 49ers ... in addition to the Eagles beating the Seahawks and then the Packers. Philly DID previously win in Green Bay back in Week 4.
Whether the Eagles win or lose tonight, at least everyone can enjoy Sean Payton’s Saints getting eliminated. Fraudulents!.
