Seahawks make big plays on both sides of the ball

AP

The Seattle defense has done a job tonight, and forced a turnover when the Eagles appeared to be waking up.

Now the offense has caught up.

The Seahawks took a 17-3 lead in the third quarter, after Russell Wilson hit Doug Baldwin for a 47-yard bomb, which set up a touchdown three plays later to Tyler Lockett.

That drive came after Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz fumbled and the ball went out of the back of the end zone, giving the Seahawks a touchback.

It was a harsh result, as the the Eagles had been moving the ball for the first time all night. Now they’ll have to hurry if they want back in this one.

  1. Oh well. Such is the life of an Eagles fan. This is why as an Eagles an, or Philly sports fan in general, you cannot make the mistake of allowing yourself to become excited or enjoy anything too much. All of the people saying that we haven’t beaten anyone were right. We finally get a challenge, and the Seahwaks aren’t even at 100 percent, and we get smacked back into reality. If we make the playoffs Minnesota or New Orleans will DESTROY us.

    As a vikes fan; I know exactly how you feel.

  3. You can’t play not to lose for 3 quarters and expect to win the game in 1 quarter. And you definately don’t want to give the Seahawks a reason to just pass rush you every play because you waited until you were down by 14 points to throw the ball down field.

    Also, how do you not challenge that Russell Wilson lateral? That was a 7 point swing. Pederson was totally out coached. It seemed like he learned the lesson about playing to win for 4 quarters after the Dallas debacle last year but it seems he needed a reminder.

    Hopefully, this is the last we see of the ultraconservative offense.

  4. For all the talk about that lateral going forward, I don’t think that was a play that could be challenged.

    In essence, they would be asking for a penalty to be called where one was missed.

    If it were challengable, and Philly won, what do they do to make it right? Trey can’t do anything really since they can’t call a penalty.

    As a Browns fan, I would be happy to trade places with either of you!

    I see it a bit different. The game plan was garbage but I still feel the Eagles would’ve won if the offense wasn’t trying to win it 9-6. If Pederson had challenged that lateral the Eagles would’ve been driving to tie it up with 6 minutes remaining after playing not to lose for 3 quarters.

    Let’s hope it was learning lesson. If the lesson is learned, the Eagles will be stronger for it.

  7. This was the Seahawks SB. Next time they’ll be on the road in Minnesota or Philly or NO and get pile driven.

  8. ….And that’s what happens when you play a decent team!

    Sit back and enjoy the next few weeks as good defenses get to watch tape of what a real defense did to shut down Philly.

    Look on the bright side Eagles fans, you still get to play the Giants so you’ll get to 11 wins at least.

  9. The rumors of the demise of the Seahawks dynasty have been greatly exaggerated. The defense is still elite even without 2 Hall of Famers and a Pro Bowler. Russell Wilson isn’t just an MVP, he’s on his way to the Hall of Fame.

    What you saw tonight should chill the hearts of every other team in the NFL.

    What you saw is domination.

  10. Seattle always goes after the ball. The Hawks looked so much better tonight than I thought they would because of injuries. Well done Hawks, and I would like to second the comment about some of those throws Wilson & Wentz made tonight,fun to watch.

  11. This is why you play all 16 games of the season, and not just the first half. The Chiefs looked like the team to beat coming into the season starting off 5-0, The Broncos looked like a decent team and now lost 8 in a row. The Seahawks looked lost in the first half of the season and look troubled. Well Seahawks have history of showing up in the second half of the season and peaking at the right time. Any team can win on any given Sunday.

    The Seahawks still have a couple tough games down the stretch that are not guaranteed but they’re starting to find players that can play and the rotations that work, usually happens when you play that many young players. The Jags are up next and they’re playing great football. Amazing defense. We’ll see but I’m guessing a few Blake Bortles turnovers will be the difference.

    I watched the Vikes hold the #1 team in the league on 3rd down to 1 for 10 in yesterday’s game. My heart was still toasty warm this morning. Looking forward to the playoffs. Best of luck.

    Your team pulled out a great win last night and I’m happy you did.

    But the Seahawks don’t “chill the hearts of every other team in the NFL”.

    You lost to the Packers, the Titans, the Redskins and the Falcons.

    You barely beat the 49ers (3 points in game 1 and 11 points in game 2).
