Seattle Seahawks vs. Philadelphia Eagles: How to Watch, Live Stream NFL Wild-Card round on Sunday

The Philadelphia Eagles and the Seattle Seahawks round up the wild-card round of the NFL playoffs when they go head-to-head in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on Sunday afternoon.

The Eagles and the Seahawks have never met in the playoffs before and arrive into the first weekend of the postseason in contrasting moods. After toiling away behind the Dallas Cowboys for large parts of the season, Philadelphia eventually wrestled back control of the NFC East with a win over their divisional rivals in Week 16.

Short of explosive attacking talent, the Eagles rallied behind quarterback Carson Wentz to win the last four game of the regular season and finish with a 9-7 record.

Among NFC teams, only the Green Bay Packers are on winning streak longer than Philadelphia's, who has shown remarkable resilience during a season in which it has been decimated by injuries.

During the regular season, the Eagles had 13 players from the practice squad on the 53-man roster and 10 players who had been on the practice squad featured in Week 17's win over the New York Giants.

While the injuries may make a playoff run prohibitive, it speaks volumes for the toughness Doug Pederson has instilled in his team.

"What I love about this football team is how we have stuck together the entire season," the Eagles head coach told the team's official website. "Through all the ups and downs, through all the injuries, we've battled, we put ourselves in this position to win the NFC East, we've done that."

Philadelphia ranks 14th in total offense and 12th in scoring offense with 360.8 yards per game and 24.1 points per game respectively, while Wentz has thrown for 4,039 yards and 27 touchdowns.

The Seahawks, meanwhile, went 11-5—the seventh time in the past eight seasons they have won at least 10 games—but, as this graphic provided by Statista shows, were denied a first-round bye and home field advantage throughout the playoffs after losing 26-21 loss at home to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 17.

The result significantly altered the postseason picture for Seattle, whose chances of reaching the Super Bowl are as low as two percent, according to FiveThirtyEight's statistical projections.

Like Philadelphia, Seattle has rallied around its quarterback, with Russell Wilson delivering the kind of season that would have been MVP worthy and it not been for Lamar Jackson's exploits.

Wilson, who became the first quarterback in NFL history with a winning record in each of his first eight seasons, threw for 4,110 yards and 31 touchdowns—the latter figure ranking joint-third in the league, while Wentz is fifth.

Like Philadelphia, however, Seattle's postseason aspirations have dented by a series of injuries.

Carson could be ruled out for the season with a hip injury he suffered in the loss against the Cardinals last week.

The Seahawks lost running backs Chris Carson and C.J. Prosise for the season in Week 16 with a hip injury and a broken arm respectively just two weeks after Rashaad Penny, who served as Carson back-up this season, tore his ACL.

To alleviate the injury crisis Seattle re-signed veteran running back Marshawn Lynch, who made his debut in Week 17 against the 49ers and will be available on Sunday.

Seattle's running game will be severely tested against an Eagles defense that has allowed just 90.1 rushing yards per game this season, the third-lowest total in the NFL and the fourth-lowest in franchise history.

Seattle, however, will be without linebacker Mychal Kendricks, who tore his ACL in Week 17, but may welcome back safety Quandre Diggs who missed the last two games with a high ankle sprain.

"His experience, his savvy, his confidence, it has an effect," Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said of Diggs, as per the team's website.

"So I'm thrilled to get him back out there if that's the case. We need him, we need everything we can get."
