Daniel, look out behind you!

The 2022-2023 NFL playoffs have begun, and Philadelphia Eagles fans can take in a stress-free weekend of football while they wait and see who their divisional round opponent will be next weekend.

The wildcard round of the playoffs kicked off on Saturday, with the San Francisco 49ers easily handling the Seattle Seahawks. In the nightcap, Doug Pederson and the Jacksonville Jaguars stormed back from a 27-0 deficit to beat the Los Angeles Chargers. 

There are three games on the Sunday slate, the most important of which is the New York Giants against the Minnesota Vikings. If the Giants win, the Eagles will play them next weekend in the divisional round. If the Vikings win, the Eagles will play the winner of the Dallas Cowboys - Tampa Bay Buccaneers matchup on Monday night. The remaining wildcard round schedule:

Sunday, 1:00 p.m., CBS
