Another year, another Seahawks victory over the Eagles.
Russell Wilson threw for one touchdown, Chris Carson ran for another, and the Seattle Seahawks (8-3) ended a horrific offense from the Philadelphia Eagles (3-7-1) in a 23- win. 17. Seattle will end in November atop the NFC West and will control his fate as to whether or not he gets his Premier League title since 2016.
Carson Wentz was sacked six times and the Eagles’ offense didn’t even make a first down until the game’s sixth possession.
The Eagles got the ball first and after an offside penalty from Jarran Reed, Carson Wentz threw three consecutive incomplete passes. Ugly but good for the Seahawks. They had a pretty good position on the field and Russell Wilson found DK Metcalf on three catches for 31 yards. Metcalf also drew two personal fouls on two Eagles defensemen, which put Seattle in a go-to-go situation. In the 4th and 2nd goal, a pop pass to David Moore lost five yards and a turnover on the downs. What a terrible call. They went for a 4th and 2 on the next possession and Wilson was sacked.
With the Philly offense doing nothing, the Seahawks released DK Metcalf once again on a 51-yard bomb from Wilson to get to 1. David Moore caught the TD fade route two plays later to put Seattle on the set at the start of the second quarter. 7-0 Seahawks.
Following Philly’s fifth consecutive hat-trick, the Seahawks devised a 7-game, 66-yard workout that saw Chris Carson score on a 2nd and a goal from the 16th, just one play after Russell Wilson committed an intentional strand. 14-0 Seahawks.
Speaking of intentional grounding, that missed call really boosted the Eagles’ eventual touchdown. Absolutely appalling miss. Would have been 2nd and 30 or something like that. Dallas Goedert scored to cap a 15-play, 75-yard streak to end the half. They missed the PAT. 14-6 Seahawks.
Seattle hatched a hat-trick to start the third quarter, and the Eagles marched onto the field again. Instead of potentially trying the game, Carson Wentz was sacked by Jamal Adams and Jake Elliott threw a 42-yard field goal. 14-9 Seahawks.
The Seahawks played 9 plays for 52 yards on their second possession in the second half, but avoided tackling it in the 4th and 1st and instead let Jason Myers throw a 44-yard field goal for the score. a familiar. 17-9 Seahawks.
Looking to tie the game in the 4th quarter, Carson Wentz threw a short pass to Travis Fulgham at 3rd base and Tre Flowers put in a critical tackle. In 4th and 2nd place on their own turf and with only one time out, the Eagles threw themselves in and KJ Wright swept the ball for turnover on the lows.
This is what DK Metcalf did.
But he also did.
Prior to this fall, Carlos Hyde had lost a touchdown due to a detention penalty from Cedric Ogbuehi. 20-9 Seahawks.
Back-to-back pass interference penalties against Shaquill Griffin and Jordyn Brooks plunged the Eagles into Seahawks territory. Instead of kicking the basket to make it 20-12, the Eagles did it on the 4th and 4th and uh…
The Seahawks played the offense “without a clock”, sent it back to the Eagles, and Carson Wentz got sacked a bit more and threw more lousy passes. What a horribly boring game it was. The 4th and 31st shots remained incomplete and the Seahawks took over with 2:14 to go. They threw another basket to catch the final score of the Seahawks. 23-9 Seahawks.
The Eagles had a touchdown in the trash on a good Hail Mary to Richard Rodgers who made one of the most remarkable one-handed grabs you’ll see. The two-point conversion was good, but the kick in play was far and recovered by DK Metcalf. 23-17 Seahawks FINALE.
