Inactives from JSOnline.com: Harrell (3rd QB), Bigby, Hall, Gordy, Zombo, Dietrich-Smith, McDonald, and Green. As Tom Silverstein points out, DL Howard Green had been starting at defensive end, so his inactive status is a surprise, and also a sign that DE Cullen Jenkins is ready to go. Bigby, Hall, and Zombo are injured, and all the other players are the usual inactives.
I've also cheated on a prediction, as I haven't come up with one. I expect the offense will play well against the Eagles, but I didn't expect them to only score 10 points last week. And I didn't expect the 51-45 shootout that happened in last year's wild card game either when the great regular season Packer defense vanished in the playoffs. I've posted a link to Jason Wilde's preview with a Packers 24, Eagles 20 score, which is probably something along the line of what I'd have guessed too.
