Sunday, January 5th – 4:40pm EST
These two teams are the only pair playing in the Wild Card weekend that faced each other in the regular season. They faced off in Week 12 in Philadelphia. The Seahawks won a low scoring game 17-9 and continued their push toward where they are today. At that time, the Eagles were still struggling, and many people counted them out for a playoff run. Philly would follow up their loss to the Seahawks with a rock-bottom loss to the Miami Dolphins a week later. Once these losses were behind them, they rattled off 4 straight wins to overtake the Cowboys and clinch the NFC East Title. Despite their impressive run down the stretch, I think the Seahawks are still the better team and will come out of this game on top. Seattle finished the season 7-1 on the road, so they are definitely comfortable playing outside of the state of Washington. Give me the Seahawks, the 2.5 points, and the Under.
Straight Up Pick: Seattle Seahawks
Against the Spread: Seattle Seahawks -2.5
Over/Under: UNDER 46
