Seattle Seahawks at Philadelphia Eagles NFL Matchup
The Philadelphia Eagles have been playing must-win games for a month to get to this point.
Now, it’s win or go home.
The Eagles (9-7) will host the Seattle Seahawks (11-5) in an NFC wild-card playoff game Sunday after winning four straight games to secure their second division title in three years.
Pressure won’t be new. Many players on Philadelphia’s roster faced it during the 2017 Super Bowl run. For the new guys, they got to experience it throughout December when one loss in any of the last four games would’ve cost the team a playoff berth.
”The last month, they have been playoff-type games for us,” coach Doug Pederson said. ”This team is battle-tested that way and we prepare that way.”
While the Eagles claw their way into the playoffs, the Seahawks enter on a two-game losing streak. Seattle would’ve clinched the NFC West and secured a home game this weekend with a win in Week 17 but lost 26-21 at home to the 49ers.
On the bright side, the Seahawks were better on the road this season, going 7-1. They beat the Eagles in Philly, 17-9, on Nov. 24.
