Only 1 former Eagles player will advance to conference championship weekend.

The pool of former Eagles in the playoffs is drastically reduced from wild card weekend to the divisional round, and there are fewer Philly alumni making it to the NFC and AFC Championship Games.

The Giants had two former Eagles on the roster for Saturday night’s game against Philly, and while OG Jack Anderson was inactive, WR Marcus Johnson had just one catch for 17 yards. We all know how that game went, so the two won’t be in the mix next weekend.

Here’s how the rest of the former Eagles fared in the divisional round:


Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Kansas City Chiefs

Jaguars head coach Doug Pederson had a great performance in his second playoff game of the year, but even with an injured Patrick Mahomes, Andy Reid’s team was too much to take. Pederson still did amazing things in Jacksonville, especially one year after being the worst team in the NFL. He probably won’t win Coach of the Year, but he certainly deserves a lot of credit for what he’s building there.

For bosses, long snapper James Winchester – who was briefly with the Eagles in 2013 – made his 16th career postseason appearance. Along with Travis Kelce, the pair set a new team record for most playoff games.

Cincinnati Bengals vs. Buffalo Bills

The Bengals were clearly the better team in the snow Sunday in Buffalo. While there were no active former Eagles coming out of this matchup, there were a couple who fit the bill.

Offensive lineman Ryan Bates He took 100 percent of the offensive snaps and safety in the divisional round game Jordan Poyer He made 6 total tackles before being sidelined with a head injury after colliding with a teammate. Defensive back Jared Maiden It was a healthy scratch again.

Dallas Cowboys vs. San Francisco 49ers

The legend of eagles Jason Peters He suffered a hip injury during the Cowboys’ wild-card weekend win over the Buccaneers and missed practice all week. Ultimately, Peters was inactive for the 49ers’ loss — a loss that came on his 41st birthday.
