    Now that the Philadelphia Eagles are in the playoffs (sounds good, huh?), it's time to take a look at the NFL playoff schedule.

    With a 24-22 win over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football, the Eagles clinched the NFC East crown and the No. 3 seed in the NFC playoffs. Philadelphia (#3) will be facing the New Orleans Saints (#6) in the first round. The game will be held in Philadelphia on Saturday night at 8:10 PM EST.

    Here is a look at the final NFL playoffs seeding:


    1. Seattle Seahawks (13-3)

    2. Carolina Panthers (12-4)

    3. Philadelphia Eagles (10-6)

    4. Green Bay Packers (8-7-1)

    5. San Francisco 49ers (12-4)

    6. New Orleans Saints (11-5)


    1. Denver Broncos (13-3)

    2. New England Patriots (12-4)

    3. Cincinnati Bengals (11-5)

    4. Indianapolis Colts (11-5)

    5. Kansas City Chiefs (11-5)

    6. San Diego Chargers (9-7)

    Here's an outlook based on each round.

    Wild Card: January 4-5
    Divisional round: January 11-12th
    AFC/NFC Championship game: January 19th
    Super Bowl: February 2nd

    The Eagles haven't been in the post-season since they faced the Green Bay Packers in the opening round during the 2010 Playoffs. Philly hasn't a won playoff game since 2008 when they made a run to the NFC Championship Game but ultimately lost to the Arizona Cardinals.

    It will be a big week of preparation for this team as they prepare to take on a talented New Orleans squad at home.

    But for now... playoffs!
