The #1 seed (13-3) Philadelphia Eagles host the #6 seed (11-6) Atlanta Falcons in the Divisional Round of the NFL playoffs. Kickoff is at 4:35 PM ET on NBC, The Falcons are 3-point road favorites and the over/under is set at 41, projecting a 22-19 Falcons victory.

The New England Patriots would rather the Philadelphia Eagles win because they’re basically a worse-version of the Jacksonville Jaguars with Nick Foles at quarterback and a less powerful defense. The Falcons are getting hot at the right time and they have a defense that has grown up immensely since last season and can better counter the Patriots.
