The Giants are on to the Divisional Round, and the Philadelphia Eagles await.

The No. 2 seeded San Francisco 49ers’ comprehensive 41-23 victory over the No. 7 Seattle Seahawks on Saturday means the Giants, the lowest remaining seed, will face the Eagles. 

The NFL announced late Sunday night that the Giants will take on the Eagles on Saturday, Jan. 21 at 8:15 p.m.

New York lost both of the matchups against Philadelphia during the regular season. In December at MetLife Stadium, the Eagles ran out to a 24-7 halftime lead en route to a 48-22 win.

In the regular season finale, with Brian Daboll resting almost every regular contributor and handing quarterback Davis Webb's first career NFL start, the Eagles earned a 22-16 win at home.
