Eagles vs. Packers in the first round

With their win over the Bears, the Packers have earned the 6th seed in the NFC and will be traveling to Philadelphia to take on the Eagles next week. While the schedule for the first playoff weekend has yet to be released, there is speculation that the game will be on Saturday night.

This game will be a rematch from Week 1 of the season when the Eagles lost 27-20 at home in an injury-filled game. That game saw the Eagles lose Jamaal Jackson and Leonard Weaver for the season and also saw the emergence of Michael Vick after he took over for the injured Kevin Kolb. A lot has changed for both teams since Week 1 so expect a very different game this time around.

I'll post the first round schedule as soon as it gets released.
