The New York Giants-Philadelphia Eagles NFC Divisional Round playoff game is set for Saturday night. The Jan. 21 contest will be played at 8:15 p.m. ET at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia. It will be broadcast on FOX.

The Eagles are the top-seeded team in the NFC. The sixth-seeded Giants advanced by upsetting the Minnesota Vikings 31-24 on Sunday.

Philadelphia pounded the Giants 48-22 in Week 14, but had to work for a 22-16 victory in Week 18 while playing their starters against the Giants’ backups in a game the Eagles needed to win to clinch the top seed in the conference.

The Eagles have been established as a 7.5-point favorite, although there are questions about the health of quarterback Jalen Hurts’ right shoulder.

The Eagles, by virtue of the No. 1 seed, had a first-round playoff bye. Since the game is on Saturday, the Giants will be playing on a short week.
