NFL Scores: Packers Defeat Eagles, Playoff Bracket Set

After the Green Bay Packers’ victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, the field for the divisional round is now set. The Packers beat the Eagles 21-16. Because the Packers were the sixth seed in the AFC, they will face the No. 1-seeded Atlanta Falcons on Saturday at 8:00 in Atlanta (FOX). The fourth-seeded Seattle Seahawks will face the Chicago Bears on Sunday at 1:00 (also FOX). That’s a very lucky break for the Bears, whose first playoff matchup somehow wound up being somewhat easier than a typical regular-season game.

As we mentioned before, in the AFC it will be the Ravens vs. the Steelers on Saturday and the Jets vs. the Patriots on Sunday. So here’s the full divisional round playoff bracket:

AFC
Baltimore (5) vs. Pittsburgh (2)
NY Jets (6) vs. New England (1)

NFC
Green Bay (6) vs. Atlanta (1)
Seattle (4) vs. Chicago (2)

Three out of four Wild Card teams made it to the divisional round.
