With the Minnesota Vikings’ loss to the Green Bay Packers on Monday night, the Vikings secured the No. 6 seed in the NFC playoffs.
For the Eagles, that means they know their opponent in the wild-card round, if they win the NFC East, will be the loser of Sunday’s game between the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers in Seattle. That game begins at 8:20 p.m.
- The Eagles’ late-season push might not yield a championship, but Carson Wentz can build on it
- Jordan Howard is finally returning, so the Eagles are releasing Jay Ajayi. Could they add a wide receiver?
- Eagles’ Jason Peters didn’t think he deserved either penalty he was called for, and thinks NFL will agree
The Eagles will clinch the NFC East title if they defeat the New York Giants at Sunday (4:25 p.m. in East Rutherford, N.J.) or if the Dallas Cowboys lose to the Washington Redskins, also on Sunday (4:25 p.m. in Arlington, Texas).
