Sunday's showdown at New Orleans marks the Eagles' 11th divisional-round playoff game in the last 25 years. They are 6-4 overall in those games but are 6-1 in their last seven appearances, including last season's 15-10 victory over Atlanta that started their road to the Super Bowl.
Here's a list, in chronological order, of those 10 games, along with some highlights (and a few lowlights)
10. Eagles 15, Falcons 10 (Jan. 13, 2018):
A dramatic defensive stand gave the Eagles their first home playoff win since the 2006 season. Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan aimed a fourth-down pass from the 2-yard line toward Julio Jones but Eagles cornerback Jalen Mills forced an incompletion to clinch the win.
9. Eagles 23, Giants 11 (Jan. 11, 2009):
The Eagles won their second straight road playoff game to earn a berth in the NFC championship game at Arizona. The Eagles scored 13 unanswered points to beat the Giants. Akers kicked two field goals and McNabb threw a 1-yard TD pass to tight end Brent Celek.
8. Saints 27, Eagles 24 (Jan. 13, 2007):
What a bizarre game. Eagles cornerback Sheldon Brown set the tone early with a vicious hit on Saints running back Reggie Bush. Quarterback Jeff Garcia threw a 75-yard TD pass to wide receiver Donte' Stallworth. Eagles All Pro guard Shawn Andrews left the game in the second quarter with a neck injury. His replacement, Scott Young, was called for a controversial false-start penalty in the fourth quarter.
7. Eagles 27, Vikings 14 (Jan. 7, 2005):
Eagles wide receiver Terrell Owens was sidelined with a broken ankle. Mitchell stepped up by catching a TD pass and recovering a fumble for another TD to sent the Eagles to their fourth straight NFC championship game. That led to a berth in Super Bowl XXXIX, where the Birds lost to New England.
6. Eagles 20, Packers 17 OT (Jan. 11, 2004):
Otherwise known in Eagles' lore as the "Fourth-and-26" game. The Eagles were in danger of getting eliminated when McNabb launched a long pass that was caught by wide receiver Freddie Mitchell was good for a 28-yard gain. Afterward, Mitchell said, "I'd like to thank my hands." The playoff run ended next week with a loss to Carolina.
5. Eagles 20, Falcons 6 (Jan. 11, 2003):
Falcons quarterback Michael Vick threw two interceptions. Eagles cornerback Bobby Taylor returned one for a touchdown. Things didn't go so well the next week against Tampa Bay in the NFC championship game. Fans still cringe at the mention of Ronde Barber and Joe Jurevicius.
4. Eagles 33, Bears 19 (Jan. 19, 2002)
Eagles defensive end Hugh Douglas flattened Bears quarterback Jim Miller after he threw an interception in the second quarter, knocking him out of the game with a separated shoulder. Bears backup Shane Matthews threw two interceptions. McNabb threw two TD passes and place-kicker David Akers booted four field goals.
3. New York Giants 20, Eagles 10 (Jan. 7, 2001)
The Eagles had made the playoffs for the first time since the 1996 season under second-year coach Andy Reid and quarterback Donovan McNabb. The Giants' Ron Dixon returned the opening kickoff 97 yards for a TD. The Eagles' only TD was McNabb's 10-yard TD to wide receiver Torrance Small.
2. Cowboys 30, Eagles 11 (Jan. 30, 1996)
The Eagles spent the week training at Dodgertown in Vero Beach, Florida. Cunningham flew home to Las Vegas to be there for the birth of his first child and forgot his playbook. Quarterback Rodney Peete suffered a concussion and Cunningham struggled as his replacement.
1. Cowboys 34, Eagles 10 (Jan. 10, 1993)
The Eagles continued to honor the late Jerome Brown by bringing his locker with them to Texas Stadium. The Cowboys jumped to a 17-3 halftime lead and were never threatned. The Eagles' only touchdown came on Randall Cunningham's 18-yard pass to wide receiver Calvin Williams.
