The Eagles will take on the Giants this weekend and fans are feeling confident.

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- The matchup is set!

The 1-seed Philadelphia Eagles will host the New York Giants (6 seed) in the NFL's Divisional Playoffs round.

The game will be played at 8:15 p.m. on Saturday, January 21, at Lincoln Financial Field.

The Giants upset the Minnesota Vikings, the No. 3 seed, Sunday night in the Wild Card round.

Daniel Jones passed for 301 yards and two touchdowns and ran 15 times for 79 yards in his first career playoff game for the New York Giants to secure a 31-24 victory.

The winner of tonight's Monday Night Football matchup between the Dallas Cowboys and Tampa Bay Buccaneers will face the San Francisco 49ers. You can watch that game right here on 6abc beginning at 8:15 p.m.

The Eagles defeated the Giants twice in the regular season -- during Week 14 with a 48-22 victory and during Week 18 with a 22-16 win to secure the No. 1 seed.

Even with the Giants' late-season surge and quarterback Jalen Hurts still recovering from a shoulder sprain suffered in Week 15, the Eagles have the edge coming off the bye week. One other thing to keep in mind: In that Week 14 game, the Eagles held running back Saquon Barkley to just 28 rushing yards, his second-lowest output of the season.
