The Green Bay Packers (10-6) slipped into the playoffs this season with a win over the Bears in week 17. If Green Bay lost the game last week against Chicago the New York Giants would have been in the playoffs rather then the Packers. The Philadelphia Eagles (10-6) won the NFC East this season over the Giants thanks to a better divisional record. This is the final game of the weekend and will be played in Philadelphia on Sunday at 4:30PM EST, after the Ravens and Chiefs game.

Green Bay Packers vs Philadelphia Eagles Wild Card Analysis

The obvious edge on offense has to go to the Eagles in this NFL Wild Card match-up. Philly has been able to run through almost every defense this season when they’ve wanted too and have one of the best-ranked offenses. The Eagles averaged 27.4 PPG (3rd in the NFL) this season while gaining an average of 389.4 total YPG (3rd in the NFL). The Eagles can kill you with the deep ball and the running game, which makes them so hard to defend against. Not many teams averaged 243.9 passing YPG (9th in the NFL) and 145.4 rushing YPG (5th in the NFL) over the course of the season and it’s going to be a monster challenge trying to shut the Eagles down.

If anyone can shut down the Philadelphia Eagles though, it’s probably the Green Bay Packers. Green Bay has only given up an average of 15 PPG this season, which is 2nd best in the league. The Packers have been extremely efficient at stopping the pass with their shutdown corners, but they’ve struggled against the run at times. Over the course of the 2011 regular season, Green Bay gave up an average 194.2 passing YPG (5th in the NFL) and 114.9 rushing YPG (18th in the NFL). Philadelphia possesses a middle of the pack defense that ranks 21st in the league in points allowed (23.6 PPG), 15th in passing yards allowed (216.8 YPG) and 15th in rushing yards allowed (110.4 YPG).

Aaron Rodgers and the Packers shouldn’t have too much difficulty moving the ball against the Eagles on Sunday. If their defense can stop Michael Vick then Rodgers could easily steal this game from Philly. Green Bay averaged 24.2 PPG (10th in the NFL), 257.8 passing YPG (5th in the NFL) and 100.4 rushing YPG (24th in the NFL) during the 2011 regular season. Brandon Jackson hasn’t been able to get going much this season in the Packers backfield, but he’ll need to try and break the 100-yard mark this Sunday. With the Eagles having the edge on offense and the Packers having the edge on defense it’s going to be interesting to see who wins the battle come Sunday.

NFC Wild Card – Packers vs Eagles Key Match-Ups

Vick & McCoy vs. Packers Front Seven

Michael Vick and LeSean McCoy have caused problems all season long for their opposition on the ground and that’s proven by the fact that they’ve averaged 145.4 rushing YPG. If the Packers want to avoid this game slipping away from them there front seven will need to make sure that they contain both Vick and McCoy. Vick has the speed and vision to turn any play into a monster gain and those types of big conversions are what kill teams in the NFL. Nothing is worse than watching a QB run and convert a 3rd down when you’re trying to get off the field on defense. The Packers have two of the best linebackers in the game (Clay Matthews & A.J. Hawk) and both of them are capable of keeping Vick or McCoy smothered.

Aaron Rodgers vs. Eagles Secondary

Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers finished the regular season with the 5th best passing offense in the league, as they averaged a total of 257.8 passing YPG. Rodgers has a lot of different targets that can catch the ball, but Greg Jennings and Donald Driver will no doubt be his main targets on Sunday. The Eagles had a total of 23 INT’s during the 2011 regular season including 7 by Asante Samuel, which I’m sure will be in the back of Rodger’s mind. It’s going to be important for Rodgers to find players like James Jones and Jordy Nelson when the two big receivers are covered because if he forces the ball into coverage it’s going to get picked off.

Green Bay Packers vs Philadelphia Eagles Prediction

Michael Vick seems to be on a mission this season and he has the talent around him to make a run in the playoffs. Green Bay has a great defense that actually matches up well against the Eagles, but I think Philly will prevail at home by more than –2.5 points. I expect Rodgers to toss up at least 1 INT at some point in the game and I have a feeling that Vick is going to be able to shred the Packers with short yardage passes to the open receiver. Philly has a lot of speed at the WR position and they should be able to sit down in between the linebackers and corners this Sunday.

I’m taking the Eagles -2.5 at BetOnline, and the under (46.5) at Bodog.com.

Packers/Eagles Road to the Playoffs

The Packers have been riddled with injuries all season long including an injury to Aaron Rodgers near the end of the season. They still managed to pull through when they needed to and now have a shot at the Superbowl. Green Bay beat the Giants in week 16 and the Bears in week 17 so they should be coming into this game with some confidence. In week 17 the Packers didn’t mustard up much offense, but they didn’t need to, as their defense only allowed the Bears a single FG the entire game. If the Packers can play defense like they did last week they’ll have a great chance against Vick and the lightning quick Eagle WR’s.

The Philadelphia Eagles were looking great heading into week 16 with a 3-game winning streak, but they’ve fallen back a little bit and lost their last two games of the 2011 regular season. The Eagles lost in week 16 against the Vikings (24-14) and in week 17 against the Cowboys (14-13). The good news is that Philly was sitting their starters against the Cowboys and they still almost won the game with their back-ups playing the game. Vick and McCoy should be able to do a lot more damage than Kolb and Harrison managed to do last week against Dallas, plus the star-tandem will be rested this Sunday for their game against the Packers.
