The top seed in the NFC gets the pleasure of hosting a resurgent Falcons team. Should be fun!

Tomorrow brings us the Divisional Round of the playoffs, starting with the Atlanta Falcons continuing a season that went from great to lousy to okay to great again against an Eagles team that should be the NFC’s most formidable but is instead trying to overcome the loss of Carson Wentz with great defense, a strong ground game, and maybe some luck. It’ll probably be an excellent game.

For Philadelphia, there’s a lot to say about the fact that they’re not favored and will be playing with a massive chip on their shoulders. For Atlanta, it’s the chance to continue to make a lot of fans and analysts look pretty dumb for writing them off back October or November or even early December, despite the very obvious regression of the offense. This Falcons team is so marbled with talent and so remarkably resilient that you can talk yourself into thinking they can make a run at the championship again, but they’ve got to conquer some very good teams along the way. Philly will not be a pushover.

As you’re preparing to watch the game, here’s the essential information you’ll need.
