It's the battle of the birds with the Eagles hosting the Seahawks on Sunday. The Philadelphia Eagles squeaked into the playoffs by winning the NFC East with a 9-7 record. The Seattle Seahawks finished the year 11-5, but behind the 49ers in the NFC West and had to settle for a Wild Card birth into the NFL playoffs.
It'll be the first playoff game for Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz, but many players remain from Philly's Super Bowl-winning team from two years ago. For the Seahawks, quarterback Russell Wilson is looking for his second Super Bowl ring, and he'll have a familiar face in the backfield in Marshawn Lynch. Best known as Beast Mode, the longtime Seahawk running back came out of retirement and signed with Seattle before the final game of the regular season after a rash of injuries left the Seahawks thin at running back. The Eagles are a 1.5-point underdog at home.
The Wild Card game between the Seahawks and Eagles kicks off in Philadelphia this Sunday, Jan 5. at 4:40 p.m. ET (1:40 p.m. PT) on NBC.
