The stage, or shall we say cage, is set.
The Philadelphia Eagles host the Atlanta Falcons this Saturday at 4:35pm on NBC. The Birds are home underdogs, something that hasn’t happened for a one seed in the playoffs since 1970. The Falcons face the Birds because they took down the Los Angeles Rams on Saturday night, 26-13. In the other Wild Card Weekend games, another Andy Reid team collapsed, Jacksonville was not as bad as Buffalo, and the Saints managed not to give it away to the Panthers.
It was an entertaining weekend, here is the schedule for the divisional round:
Saturday, January 13
Atlanta Falcons at Philadelphia Eagles, 4:35 p.m. (NBC)
Tennessee Titans at New England Patriots, 8:15 p.m. (CBS)
Sunday, January 14
Jacksonville Jaguars at Pittsburgh Steelers, 1:05 p.m. (CBS)
New Orleans Saints at Minnesota Vikings, 4:40 p.m. (FOX)
