NFL Playoff Schedule: Eagles Host Packers Sunday At 4:30

New, 1 comment

The Green Bay Packers held on for a 10-3 win against the Chicago Bears which secured the #6 seed in the NFC and booked them a trip to to Philadelphia in the first round of the playoffs. It will be a rematch of the week one game between these two which the Packers won 27-20. Kevin Kolb started the game for the Eagles but suffered a first half concussion which made way for Michael Vick to lead a second half comeback which fell just short.

Considering all the injuries and players in and out these two teams have seen this year, it will be like two new teams facing each other. Green Bay brings one of the NFC's better defenses to face the NFC's best offense in what should be the highlight matchup of the wildcard weekend.

The Packers win also means the New York Giants were eliminated, making the Eagles the lone representative from the NFC East. The winner of the NFC West will host the New Orleans Saints in the other NFC wildcard game. Over the AFC the Colts will host the Jets while the Chiefs will get the Ravens at Arrowhead stadium.
