Here are some options for where to watch the Eagles begin their playoff run on Saturday

It's a wonderful time to be a Philadelphia sports fan. Just months after the Phillies made it to the World Series and the Philadelphia Union played in the MLS Cup, the Eagles are facing off against the New York Giants in the NFL playoffs this Saturday.

 

Though the game doesn't start until 8:15 p.m. on Jan. 21, a Saturday playoff game means plenty of opportunities for Birds fans to celebrate and party as the NFC's No. 1 seeded team attempts to make it all the way to this year's Super Bowl.

 

The Laurel in Rittenhouse, the tallest residential building in Philly, will light up green on Friday in advance of the game. Dietz and Watson, meanwhile will be outside of the Wells Fargo Center on Saturday afternoon handing out free "Bird Dogs" with green buns to celebrate the Eagles' playoff run.

 

If you're headed to the Stadium District for the game, make sure to catch a free ride home on the Broad Street Line, courtesy of SEPTA and Unibet Sportsbook. And if you're looking for a way to keep the party going all weekend long, grab some limited-edition "Fly Like An Eagle" green beer from Evil Genius Beer Co. in Fishtown while supplies last.

 

For those unable to snag stadium tickets for Saturday night's game, here is a rundown of just a few spots in Philly hosting watch parties during the NFL playoffs.
