NFL Playoffs 2020: Wild Card Sunday decides who comes to Lambeau in Divisional round

Will the Saints book a trip to Wisconsin, or will the Packers draw the winner of Seahawks-Eagles?

New Orleans Saints safety Marcus Williams (43) was flagged for pass interference while defending Vikings receiver Stefon Diggs in the second quarter of Sunday’s divisional playoff game. The penalty set up the Vikings with first-and-goal at the 1-yard line

Who’s coming to Lambeau Field next week for the Divisional round of the NFC playoffs? That will be decided today as the two NFC Wild Card games kick off this afternoon.

First up is the contest that will decide which winner goes where, the 3-6 matchup. The New Orleans Saints host, finishing in a three-way tie for the best record in the conference but losing out on tiebreakers to the Green Bay Packers and San Francisco 49ers. They will host the Minnesota Vikings in a rematch of a handful of notable playoff games past — including the Minneapolis Miracle and Brett Favre’s final playoff contest.

If New Orleans wins, they come to Green Bay next Sunday. If Minnesota is victorious, they head to San Francisco with the winner of the second game going to Wisconsin instead.

That game pits the 9-7 Philadelphia Eagles, winners of the NFC East, against the Seattle Seahawks. Seattle has an absurd record in one-score games this year — 9-2 in games decided by 7 or fewer points — and has scored just seven points more than its opponents all year. Still, they finished 11-5 and have one of the most dangerous quarterbacks in the NFL in Russell Wilson.

Who earns a trip to Green Bay next year? Tune in to today’s games to find out.
