PHILADELPHIA—The Seahawks beat the Eagles 17-9 Sunday, meaning they advance to the divisional round of the playoff for the seventh time in 10 seasons under Pete Carroll and John Schneider.
Next up for the Seahawks is a trip to Green Bay where they'll play the Packers on Sunday at 3:40 p.m. pacific time. The Packers (13-3) won the NFC North and are the NFC's No. 2 seed, which gave them a first-round bye.
The Seahawks go to Green Bay instead of San Francisco because the sixth-seeded Vikings upset the No. 3 seeded Saints on Sunday, sending Minnesota to the Bay Area to face the 49ers, the NFC's top seed. Minnesota's win also keeps alive the chance of Seattle hosting the NFC championship game if both of those wild-card teams were to win again on the road next week.
The Seahawks and Packers did not play each other in the regular season, last facing off last season when the Seahawks beat Green Bay at CenturyLink Field. Seattle's last trip to Lambeau Field came in Week 1 of the 2017 season, a Seahawks loss. The Seahawks have played the Packers three times in the playoffs, with the home team prevailing each time. Green Bay won games at Lambeau Field that ended the Seahawks' 2003 and 2007 seasons, while the Seahawks beat the Packers in the NFC championship game five years ago to advance to Super Bowl XLIX.
