Offensive coordinator Mike Groh and wide receivers coach Carson Walch have been relieved of their duties by the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Eagles missed out on the Divisional Round when they were beaten 17-9 by the Seattle Seahawks last weekend.

Head coach Doug Pederson suggested Groh and Walch would retain their roles on Wednesday, but revealed just a day later that they had departed.

"After much consideration and discussion, I have decided to make a change at the offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach positions," Pederson said in a statement.

"It was not an easy decision for me to make and I appreciate everything that Mike Groh and Carson Walch contributed to the organisation and to my staff.

"As I said yesterday, they were a big part of our success down the stretch this past season.

"This is one of the most difficult parts of the job and something that weighs on me, but ultimately I have to make decisions that I believe are in the best interest of the football team moving forward

"I apologise for any confusion that I created during yesterday's press conference, including my comments on coach [Jim] Schwartz, who has done a great job as our defensive coordinator.

"It was my intent not to comment on any of my staff during the ongoing evaluations, because I wanted to be able to go through the process and communicate any decision directly with the individuals.

"I did a poor job of explaining that the first time I was asked. I will continue to evaluate everything, and consider all possibilities to improve our football team."

Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins wants a new and improved deal and he will not return to Lincoln Financial Field next season unless he does.

Jenkins has a year remaining on his current contract with the Eagles and the two-time NFL Super Bowl champion is trying to renegotiate fresh terms in Philadelphia.

The 32-year-old enjoyed another fine season for the Eagles, tallying 81 tackles, 2.5 sacks and four forced fumbles en route to the NFC wild-card playoffs, which Philadelphia lost.

Now, three-time Pro Bowler Jenkins – who joined the Eagles from the New Orleans Saints in 2014 – wants a pay rise.

"I won't be back under the same deal," Jenkins told reporters on Monday. "That won't happen. ... It's like anything else, you set your value on the market.

"The market is good for safeties right now, and I consider myself to be in the top tier of that group."

"I'm not one to beg," Jenkins added. "I am a very prideful person, so I feel like what I put out there this year, what I put on tape, what I've given to this team is more than enough. I can't do any more. So for me, I feel good about that; that it'll be good enough for me to go into this offseason with certainty that I'll be fine."

"I told myself I'll make it to 10 and then go year by year after that, you know, as long as my body felt good, the money was what I wanted and it was a team I enjoy being on," he said. "Right now I'm physically able, still love the game, I would love to be here, but I understand that this is a business.

"Honestly, I've reached the point where I've done what I can. At this point, it's up to my agent and management. I let my soul bleed every time I touch the field, sacrifice myself, do whatever I'm asked to do. So I'm content with doing my part."

 

Carson Wentz says he was "so dang proud" of the Philadelphia Eagles' season and assured fans he would be "just fine" after a head injury in the playoff defeat to the Seattle Seahawks.

The Eagles lost Sunday's wild card game 17-9 at home to the Seahawks after quarterback Wentz was forced to exit in the first quarter, having taken a blow to the back of his helmet from Jadeveon Clowney.

Wentz had played the entire regular season for the first time since his rookie year, having suffered major injuries in 2017 and 2018 and missed Philadelphia's Super Bowl LII triumph.

Although his playoff debut ended on a sour note, the 27-year-old took to Instagram on Monday to send a message to fans, offering an update on his health while looking forward to the 2020 season.

"So dang proud of this team and how we battled and overcame so much this season," Wentz wrote. "Not the ending we envisioned but we will all grow and be stronger because of it!

"The fight and resiliency that this team displayed was so impressive. Love these guys!

"Also, appreciate the thoughts and prayers. I'm feeling good today and will be just fine! Head injuries are a scary thing so I appreciate everybody's thoughts and prayers.

"Hate not being out there to finish it out with my guys because of a play like that, but it's the unfortunate part of this game. It's all in God's plan, not mine! Trusting in him.

"Philly, year four was one fun ride. Appreciate the love and support - especially the real ones who were with us through the highs and lows.

"Onward to next year... big things comin', believe that!"

Seahawks defensive end Clowney speculated after the game he might receive death threats from "the worst fans in the world" in Philadelphia for the hit on Wentz, but he added there was no intent in the incident.

"I was just playing fast, and he turned like he was running the ball, so I was trying to get him down," Clowney said. "It was a bang-bang play.

"I don't intend to hurt anybody in this league, let me just put that out there. I've been down the injury road - it's not fun.

"That's a great player over there for their team and for their organisation. I hope he's okay. Like I said, I didn't intend to hurt him.

"I didn't even know he went out of the game until the next series. I thought it was just a small hit, but everybody was going crazy on the sidelines. I was just trying to finish the play, but it happened."

Rookie wide receiver DK Metcalf stole the show in the Seattle Seahawks' playoff win at the Philadelphia Eagles, earning plaudits from Russell Wilson, Pete Carroll and even LeBron James.

Metcalf had 160 receiving yards on seven receptions and connected with Wilson for the decisive touchdown in a 17-9 wild-card round win.

The 53-yard TD saw Metcalf go to ground in taking the catch before springing up to lunge into the endzone, securing an advantage the Seahawks protected with relative ease.

Quarterback Wilson was particularly effusive in his praise of the "special" 22-year-old, a second-round pick in 2019.

"DK was special tonight, and he's been special all year," Wilson told reporters. "He's one of the best rookies that's come out.

"He's got a nice little chip on his shoulder, too - I'm glad he's on our team, that's for sure, and he's on our team for a long time.

"I think the great thing about him, though, is that he's always been professional from day one. Nothing happens by accident.

"[It has been about his] his preparation, how he's prepared week in, week out - even since the offseason - all the extra work, all the early mornings, throwing at 5:20 in the morning in the summer. That's what greatness looks like."

Head coach Carroll added: "I think the night was stolen by DK. He did some stuff that it's hard to imagine anyone else doing."

And NBA great James took to Instagram to add his congratulations, posting on his story: "Congrats young [king]. Too fast, too strong."

The Seahawks move on to play the Green Bay Packers in the divisional round in the NFC.

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson believes the NFC wild-card clash with the Seattle Seahawks would have been a different if star quarterback Carson Wentz did not suffer a head injury.

Wentz exited in the first quarter after hurting his head and did not return as the Eagles lost 17-9 to the Seahawks in the NFL playoffs on Sunday.

The Eagles signal caller took a blow to the back of his helmet from Seahawks defensive end Jadeveon Clowney and was replaced by 40-year-old back-up Josh McCown.

McCown – making his postseason debut following 17 seasons in the league – went 18 of 24 for 174 yards as the Eagles failed to reach the divisional round in Philadelphia.

Asked whether the game would have been different if Wentz was healthy, Pederson told reporters: "It's hard to say but I'd say yes if he was healthy. With the game plan we had, I think so. But it's hard to speculate."

The Eagles were hoping Wentz could lead the team deep into the playoffs after the 27-year-old played the entire regular season for the first time since his rookie year.

Wentz had suffered major injuries in 2017 and 2018 as Nick Foles stepped up to guide the Eagles to Super Bowl LII glory – Sunday's playoff appearance his first since being drafted in 2016.

"I feel for him. I feel bad for him," Pederson said of Wentz. "I briefly saw him in the dressing room afterwards.

"I'm disappointed for him. I wanted this for him. A lot of his team-mates did, too. So did the team and organisation. He's been through a lot."

Th Eagles endured an injury-ravaged season, but star tight end Zach Ertz managed to suit up and face the Seahawks, despite two non-displaced rib fractures sustained in Week 16.

Ertz was rushed to hospital after finding blood in his urine, however, he took to the field two weeks later and was teary-eyed post-game.

"It's been tough. It's been real tough," Ertz told reporters. "It hurts. Been a lot of highs and lows. My faith just kept me through it, kept me grounded. There was a plan for me.

"I just wanted it to be black and white, honestly. I took the emotion out of it. I just prayed that I wanted it to be clear. I didn't want it to be a grey area where it was an emotional decision. When it was unanimous that I was good to play, I knew that there was a plan and a reason, and that's why I was able to go."

"I wanted to play for this city," Ertz added. "I take a lot of pride [in] playing for my team-mates."

The Seattle Seahawks moved past the injury-hit Philadelphia Eagles courtesy of a 17-9 win in the NFL playoffs on Sunday.

Seattle set up a clash against the Green Bay Packers in the divisional round after proving too good for the Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field.

The Eagles lost quarterback Carson Wentz in the first quarter due to a head injury and never got to their best to trouble the Seahawks in the NFC wild-card showdown.

Seahawks QB Russell Wilson went 18 of 30 for 325 yards and a touchdown, but it was Seattle's defense that dominated.

They managed seven sacks, including six of Wentz's replacement Josh McCown.

McCown went 18 of 24 for 174 yards, but Wentz's injury, which came after a blow to the back of his helmet from Jadeveon Clowney, hurt the Eagles' chances.

The Seahawks needed until late in the second quarter to score their first TD as Marshawn Lynch spun over from five yards.

Jake Elliott's three field goals were all the Eagles could manage, with his second bringing them back to a 10-6 deficit in the third quarter.

However, Wilson connected with DK Metcalf with a 53-yard touchdown pass and the Seahawks were untroubled from then.

Metcalf starred with 160 receiving yards on seven receptions.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz will miss the remainder of the NFC wild-card clash against the Seattle Seahawks with a head injury.

Wentz, 27, left the field and was questionable to return after taking a blow to the back of his helmet from Seahawks defensive end Jadeveon Clowney in the first quarter of Sunday's NFL playoff game.

Veteran back-up Josh McCown replaced Wentz under center before the latter was officially ruled out by the Eagles after half-time in Philadelphia.

Wentz sat out Philadelphia's playoff run in 2017, his second season in the league, after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) during the regular season.

In his absence, Nick Foles steered the franchise to their first Super Bowl triumph, as they beat the New England Patriots 41-33 in Minnesota.

Prior to the postseason showdown against the Seahawks, Wentz completed 388 passes for 4,039 yards and 27 touchdowns in 16 appearances.

The Philadelphia Eagles were forced to turn to Josh McCown at quarterback early on against the Seattle Seahawks after starter Carson Wentz suffered a head injury in the NFC wild-card clash.

Wentz was hurt while running the ball during the first quarter of Sunday's NFL playoff game, having taken a blow to the back of his helmet from Seahawks defensive end Jadeveon Clowney.

McCown came in for Philadelphia's next possession, with the Eagles announcing on Twitter that Wentz – making his postseason debut – was being evaluated, listing him as "questionable to return".

The 40-year-old back-up is with his ninth team in an NFL career that started back in 2002. He had announced his retirement after spending the previous two seasons with the New York Jets, only to be tempted back by the Eagles.

Wentz sat out Philadelphia's playoff run in 2017, his second season in the league, after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) during the regular season.

In his absence, Nick Foles steered the franchise to their first Super Bowl triumph, as they beat the New England Patriots 41-33 in Minnesota.

The Philadelphia Eagles are still unsure if Zach Ertz will feature against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday – but Nelson Agholor will definitely miss the Wild Card game in the opening round of the NFL playoffs.

Tight end Ertz did not play against the New York Giants in Week 17 as the Eagles clinched the NFC East, sitting out the game due to rib and back injuries.

Along with offensive lineman Lane Johnson – who has not featured since Week 14 due to an ankle issue – Ertz was listed on the team's latest injury report on Friday as questionable.

"He is still not cleared for any contact," Philadelphia head coach Doug Pederson said of Ertz prior to Friday's practice session.

"He will work a little on the side, like he's done this week. We're waiting on a few doctor results tomorrow [Saturday]. If things go favourably, he'll play and if they don't, he won't."

As for Johnson, the Eagles' selection with the fourth pick in the 2013 draft, the two-time Pro Bowl tackle was limited in practice on Wednesday and Thursday but did not participate at all on Friday.

Wide receiver Agholor has been ruled out contention due to a knee injury, scuppering his hopes of facing the Seahawks at Lincoln Financial Field.

While his absence will be a blow to a depleted offense already without fellow receivers Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson, there was some good news for the team concerning Miles Sanders.

The rookie running back hurt his ankle during the 34-17 triumph over the Giants but was a full participant in practice on Friday.

The NFL playoffs are upon us and a feast of football awaits on Wild Card Weekend.

With two games on Saturday and another double-header on Sunday, there is plenty of action to look forward to.

It all kicks off with the Houston Texans hosting the Buffalo Bills, before reigning champions the New England Patriots face the Tennessee Titans on the road later that day.

The Seattle Seahawks head to Philadelphia to tackle the Eagles in the final showdown, which comes after the New Orleans Saints have welcomed the Minnesota Vikings.

We take a closer look at all the games using Stats Perform data.

 

SATURDAY (All times Eastern)

Bills (10-6) v Texans (10-6) 4:35pm

- This will be the first game between these two teams since a 20-13 Texans win in Houston in 2018. The Texans have won each of the last three home games against the Bills, holding them to 13.0 points per game.

- The Bills are looking for their first playoff victory since 1999 after reaching 10 wins for the first time since that same 1999 season.

SUNDAY

Vikings (10-6) v Saints (13-3) 1:05pm

- This will be the fifth all-time postseason meeting between the Vikings and the Saints, with the Vikings winning three of the previous four games, including 'The Minneapolis Miracle' in the 2017 Divisional Playoff – a 29-24 triumph settled by Case Keenum's 61-yard touchdown pass to Stefon Diggs as time expired.

- Minnesota have not won a road playoff game since a 2004 Wild Card Game at Green Bay, 31-17. The Vikings have allowed at least 17 points in 15 consecutive road playoff games.

Seahawks (11-5) v Eagles (9-7) 4:40pm

- The Seahawks lost 24-22 to the Cowboys in the 2018 Wild Card Game in Dallas, snapping a six-game winning streak in such games.

- Seattle enter the postseason with back-to-back losses after starting the season 11-3.

Philadelphia Eagles coach Doug Pederson is hoping Lane Johnson will be back to relieve a mounting injury crisis ahead of Sunday's playoff encounter with the Seattle Seahawks.

Johnson suffered an ankle injury on December 9, though Pederson revealed on Monday the 29-year-old would be in contention to practice this week.

On Wednesday, Pederson confirmed Johnson was set to take part in a walkthrough, tbut would not yet be ready for a full-contact session.

However, the coach – who has had to place guard Brandon Brooks on the injured reserve list – hopes Johnson will be available for selection against the Seahawks.

"We're getting close on a couple of guys," Pederson told a news conference. 

"I do expect Lane to be able to go through and take a few plays. I think [tight end] Zach [Ertz] may be able to give us a little something.

"The rest of the guys, we’ve got to see. We’re a little more day to day with them and we've got to make sure they're closer to 100 per cent before we stick them out there."

Pederson also added his plans for the right guard position for Sunday's game will depend on Johnson's fitness.

"Not to divulge our gameplan, but we've got a couple of things going on there," he said.

"If Lane can play then we can work Big V [Halapoulivaati Vaitai] in there [at right guard]. If Lane can't, then we can put Matt Pryor [at right guard] and put Big V at tackle.

"We've got some scenarios that we've got to look at, starting in practice [on Wednesday]."

Pederson had already ruled Brooks – who dislocated his shoulder against the New York Giants on Sunday – out for the postseason, with the Eagles signing wide receiver Shelton Gibson to fill his roster spot.

"We know Shelton, definitely gives us depth. He's a core [special] teams player for us as well," Pederson said.

"It's unfortunate with the roster moves that we had to make, putting Brandon down and all that, but we can add these guys to the roster and give us depth."

The Philadelphia Eagles are heading into the NFL playoffs with a new running back on their active roster after signing Elijah Holyfield.

Undrafted Georgia product Holyfield, the son of former two-weight boxing world champion Evander Holyfield, spent the regular season on the Carolina Panthers practice team and became available after they opted against offering him a reserve future contract on Monday.

The rookie tailback will provide additional depth as Miles Sanders (ankle) and Jordan Howard (shoulder) head into the postseason with niggling injuries.

Philadelphia also announced on Tuesday defensive end Daeshon Hall has been placed on injured reserve after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament in Sunday's 34-17 win over the New York Giants.

The Eagles will take on the Seattle Seahawks in the Wild Card Round at Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday.

The Philadelphia Eagles will be without Brandon Brooks for their playoff campaign after the guard suffered a dislocated shoulder against the New York Giants.

The Eagles clinched the NFC East and ensured their place in the playoffs with a 34-17 win over the Giants on Sunday.

However, it came at a cost, with Pro Bowler Brooks dislocating his shoulder in the second quarter, while running back Miles Sanders also succumbed to an ankle issue and Daeshon Hall suffered a serious injury late on.

On Monday, Pederson confirmed Brooks will not be available against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday or in any subsequent postseason matches.

"Brooks had the dislocated right shoulder during the game. He's suffered a little more damage in there and he's going to miss the remainder of the season," Pederson told a media conference.

"Brandon's a big loss. He's an anchor in the offensive line, he's big and physical and he's a professional. He comes to work every day ready to go.

"The other report I should put out there is Daeshon Hall, last play of the game, ACL. So he's done for the year. It's unfortunate."

Brooks was replaced at right guard by lineman Matt Pryor, and with Lane Johnson returning to fitness, Pederson is hoping to still have plenty of options heading into Sunday's game.

"There's some flexibility there. Lane will work himself back into practice this week but we have some options there. We'll see how the week plays out," Pederson added.

"To Matt Pryor's credit, he stepped in and did well in the game, and if he's the guy, we expect him to pick up where Brandon left off. But [Brooks is] definitely a big loss.

"We've got a great opportunity in front of us. Seattle aren't going to feel sorry for us. We've got to continue to work, practice, prepare and get ready for Sunday."

The Seahawks have their own injury concerns ahead of the playoffs, with the NFL Network reporting linebacker Mychal Kendricks is believed to have torn his anterior cruciate ligament in Week 17.

The San Francisco 49ers edged the Seattle Seahawks 26-21 in a wild clash to clinch the NFC's number one seed and a first-round bye in the NFL playoffs.

San Francisco emerged as NFC West champions and the top seeds thanks to Sunday's incredible victory in Seattle.

The Philadelphia Eagles and Tennessee Titans booked their postseason berths with wins on the final day of the regular season.

Meanwhile, AFC top seeds the Baltimore Ravens head into the bye on the back of an impressive 28-10 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

 

NINERS DOWN SEAHAWKS IN THRILLER 

The Seahawks appeared dead and buried against the 49ers, trailing 26-14 with less than four minutes remaining.

However, the final minutes were unbelievable as the 49ers somehow denied the Seahawks a first-round bye and top spot in the NFC.

Down 26-21 in the final seconds, Seahawks tight end Jacob Hollister charged towards the endzone and fell just inches short of the goal-line on a fourth-down play. It came after a delay of game penalty when Seattle had the ball at the one-yard line.

Dre Greenlaw made the tackle to hold out Hollister with nine seconds remaining as the 49ers earned homefield advantage throughout the postseason after sealing their first division crown since 2012, while the Seahawks will face the Eagles in the wildcard game.

49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo was 18 of 22 for 285 yards and no touchdowns, while Raheem Mostert (two) and Deebo Samuel (one) both rushed for TDs.

Seahawks QB Russell Wilson completed 25 of his 40 throws for 233 yards and two touchdowns.

 

EAGLES SOAR INTO PLAYOFFS, TITANS JOIN THEM

The Eagles moved through to the wildcard round after capturing the NFC East championship by beating the New York Giants 34-17.

Philadelphia (9-7) finished ahead of rivals the Dallas Cowboys (8-8), who eased past the Washington Redskins 47-16.

Failing to reach the playoffs thrust the future of out-of-contract Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett further into the spotlight but owner and general manager Jerry Jones said: "I'm not going to get into it at all, an evaluation or an assessment. I'm not. I'm going to do exactly what I always do and get up, go forward and do the best job that I can. We'll make those decisions accordingly."

The Titans, meanwhile, used a 35-14 victory against the Houston Texans to advance to the playoffs and set up a wildcard showdown with defending Super Bowl champions the New England Patriots.

The Oakland Raiders missed out on the playoffs following a narrow 16-15 defeat to the Denver Broncos.

 

RAVENS CAP SEASON WITH 12TH STRAIGHT WIN

Despite the absence of their star starters, the Ravens ended the regular season with another victory, this time against the Steelers.

The Ravens extended their winning streak to 12 as they improved to 14-2 for the season without Lamar Jackson, Mark Ingram, Marshal Yanda and Earl Thomas.

"That puts an exclamation point on an excellent season," said Ravens head coach John Harbaugh.

Pittsburgh required a Tennessee loss to have any chance of becoming only the seventh team since 1970 to reach the playoffs following a 0-3 start.

 

RAMS SAY GOODBYE TO COLISEUM

The Los Angeles Rams farewelled LA Memorial Coliseum with a 31-24 triumph against the Arizona Cardinals.

As the Rams prepare to relocate to SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, they celebrated one last victory at the historic 96-year-old venue.

"I will miss playing in the Coliseum," said quarterback Jared Goff said. "I'm really excited for SoFi. What Mr. [Stan] Kroenke has done there is going to be something that I don't think the world has ever seen, honestly. It'll be a lot of fun, but I will miss the Coliseum and will miss the history of it, the lighting of the torch, the fireworks, the whole thing. The fanbase we've built here, how much louder it was this year compared to my first year, and just seeing it grow, is really cool."

Philadelphia Eagles star Carson Wentz said the team are "still hungry" after sealing the NFC East title and a wildcard berth on Sunday.

Wentz and the Eagles overcame a mounting injury list to see off the New York Giants 34-17 in their final regular-season game.

After topping NFL rivals the Dallas Cowboys (8-8) last week to seize control in the race for the NFC East and playoffs, the Eagles (9-7) made sure of their postseason place against the Giants.

Wentz, who set a franchise record for single-season completions (388) and became the first quarterback in Eagles history to reach 4,000 yards (4,039), finished 23 of 40 for 289 yards and a touchdown.

After two injury-hit seasons which forced him to miss Philadelphia's triumphant Super Bowl LII showdown in 2018, Wentz told reporters post-game: "I'm just extremely grateful to be healthy and to be playing in this meaningful game.

"And I know the guys are fired up. We're fired up. It was quite the regular season for us, with a lot of ups and downs, and the way we responded late in the year with our backs against the wall, to do what we did and to get to this moment, I think guys are thankful for it. But we're still hungry."

Philadelphia's injuries continue to add up after running back Miles Sanders (ankle) and Brandon Brooks (shoulder) were hurt against the Giants.

The Eagles – who will face either the San Francisco 49ers or Seattle Seahawks in the wildcard game – entered the contest without star tight end Zach Ertz due to a rib problem, all three of their original starting receivers, right tackle Lane Johnson and both starting cornerbacks.

"What I love about this football team is how we have stuck together the entire season through all the ups and downs, through all the injuries, we've battled, we've put ourselves in this position to win the NFC East," said head coach Doug Pederson.

"We've done that. But what I see from our players in they're already talking about next week, coming to work this week and preparing for next week, and it just tells me that the guys are in the right frame of mind."
