NFL PLAYOFF SCHEDULE
SATURDAY, JANUARY 14
- 49ers (2) vs. Seahawks (7) — 4:30 PM Eastern on FOX
- Jaguars (4) vs. Chargers (5) — 8:15 PM Eastern on NBC
SUNDAY, JANUARY 15
- Bills (2) vs. Dolphins (7) — 1:00 PM Eastern on CBS
- Vikings (3) vs. Giants (6) — 4:30 PM Eastern on FOX
- Bengals (3) vs. Ravens (6) — 8:15 PM Eastern on NBC
MONDAY, JANUARY 16
- Buccaneers (4) vs. Cowboys (5) — 8:15 PM Eastern on ESPN
- The Eagles will host the lowest remaining seed in the divisional round. They’ll face one of the following four teams: Buccaneers, Cowboys, Giants, or Seahawks.
- In the event that the Eagles face either the Bucs or Cowboys, they’ll have a significant rest advantage against their opponent. Philly will be coming off a bye while Tampa or Dallas will be coming off a Monday night game.
- Note that the Cowboys have literally never beaten Tom Brady.
- Hard to feel amazing about the Seahawks’ chances of beating the 49ers. But the Eagles would certainly not be sad to see San Fran knocked out in the first round.
- A Giants win in Minny seems feasible, especially since New York recently took Minny down to the wire at U.S. Bank Stadium. Perhaps we see Eagles vs. Giants for the third time this year and the second time within a three-week span.
