Win by Packers sets NFC divisional round matchups

The Packers’ 22-16 win over the Eagles at The Linc in Philadelphia has set the schedule for the divisional round of the NFC playoffs.

The Packers, the No. 6 seed, will travel to Atlanta to face the top-seeded Falcons on Sat., Jan. 15 at 8 p.m. ET. The Falcons won the previous meeting between the teams this season, holding on with a late Matt Bryant field goal to win 20-17 in Week 12.

In the other division round matchup, the No. 4 seeded Seahawks are headed to Chicago to face the Bears (No. 2) on Sun., Jan. 16 at 1 p.m. ET. In their only match up this season, the Seahawks sacked Jay Cutler six times in a 23-20 road win at Soldier Field.

In the divisional playoffs, the division champion with the best record in each conference hosts the lowest-seeded wild-card survivor.
