Seahawks outlook at Philly
The Seattle Seahawks are coming off a big win two weeks ago 27-24 on Monday night at San Francisco. It was not the prettiest of games for the Hawks, but again they find ways to win, albeit in overtime and after a missed field goal by the 49ers. After handing San Francisco their first loss, Seattle now must travel across the country and take on the Eagles who are contenders in the NFC East behind only the Cowboys. Russell Wilson is arguably playing his best football of his career thus far into the season, and he clearly is the better QB coming into this matchup.
Can Philly play with the Hawks?
Philly can be a tough place to get a road win, and the last two matchups between these teams were won by Seattle in Seattle. Eagles QB Carson Wentz and Head Coach Doug Pederson are 0-2 versus the Seahawks, but can they turn the tables and get a W at home? The Eagles will need to execute better on their side of the field; specifically, Wentz—he had four opportunities from the Patriot’s 26-yard line in the final two minutes last week, but he threw four incompletions that sealed the deal for the Pats. It will be a “QB led” game this weekend, and right now, Wentz is nowhere near the level that Russell Wilson is playing.

When Seattle has the Ball
Seattle’s offense has improved over the last couple of years to the point that Russell Wilson doesn’t have to do as much as he was doing—which was nearly everything. Although Wilson has played spectacularly this season and continues to be in the conversation for MVP of the league, he now has a band of brothers surrounding him. Chris Carson has 200 carries thus far and is averaging 4.3 yards per carry. The running game for the Hawks has opened the passing attack in WRs Tyler Lockett and rookie sensation D.K. Metcalf as well as the threat of Russell to scramble and make big plays with his feet. Kicker Jason Meyers is 14/19 this season and is coming off a game-winner in overtime. Seattle can score in a variety of ways, and this will give the Eagles defense a challenge come Sunday.
When Philly has the Ball
Philly can be as good as Carson Wentz plays, period. He can make plays, but he just hasn’t been the same guy these past couple years. Granted, the Eagles are missing some key players, but that aside, Wentz needs to step up Sunday, or the Hawks are going to pounce all over him. Like the quote “Franchise” QB, it’s job to be the leader, and he can’t do that by only completing 50 percent of his passes and not executing when needed. To Wentz’s credit, he takes full responsibility even when he could pass the buck. The bottom line is he needs to be more consistent and make plays. If the Eagles can get their offense rolling and their defense plays as good as they did last week against the Pats, they will be in this game plus some.
Why Bet the Hawks to cover?
Seattle is solid on the road this year. It all started in Pittsburgh week two when they flew into Heinz Field and grabbed a win once again on the incredible play of Russell Wilson (who ran for 15 yards on a third and 16, then they rushed on 4th down and one to seal the game in the last minutes). Seattle is peaking while the Eagles are broken with injuries and poor offensive play. I see the Hawks not only covering on the road but winning this game too. Russell Wilson and company will need to work quickly as the Eagles defense put a lot of pressure on Brady last week—but Brady is no Russell Wilson—somehow Russell finds ways to avoid sacks and turns nothing into something routinely.
- SEA is 4-1 ATS on the road this season
- SEA is 2-0 as a road underdog
- Philly is 2-3 ATS at home this season
- Philly 2-1 as a home favorite
