The Eagles’ Playoff Path

With Week 17 in the books, the playoff picture is set.

The Eagles will host the New Orleans Saints at the Linc next weekend – it’s an 8 p.m. Saturday night kick. If the Birds are victorious, they’ll travel to Carolina to face the Panthers in the divisional round.

The Eagles cannot face the Packers, 49ers or Seahawks until the NFC title game. If they get that far, the Eagles would either travel to Seattle, host the 49ers or host the Packers.

Here is what the seedings look like.

1. Seahawks
2. Panthers

3. Eagles
4. Packers
5. 49ers
6. Saints

The Packers host the 49ers in the other NFC playoff game next Sunday.
