One of the most interesting matchups of Week 11 is this one. Seattle Seahawks are coming off their biggest win of the season in Foxboro as they played well on both sides of the ball. When you are playing against a team like New England, that’s what you need to do.
But, this is not the time for ‘Hawks to celebrate. It’s time for them to make a statement in the second half of the season by riding the momentum that they have now and by playing the way they did against the Patriots. Eagles are a good team, so Seattle needs to perform at a high level to beat this young squad.
The crew from Philly is still in the race for that Wild Card spot in the NFC East. It’s going to be tough for them to catch the Cowboys, but Giants are within their reach. In order to insert themselves as true Playoff contenders late in the season, they need to win some games that they are not favored in. This is one of those duels, and they need to upset the ‘Hawks.
Wentz has had a great start to the season but has dropped off a bit. He is still having a pretty good rookie campaign, but not as good as his rival Dak Prescott. One of the biggest reasons for that is the lack of weapons for Wentz who can produce on a consistent basis if you give him the tools to work with.
That’s exactly what can cost you when you are playing against a defense like this one that Seattle has. They are going to be all over the Eagles on Sunday, and Wentz and company won’t put up a lot of points. It’s going to be tight in the first half, but Seattle is going to pull away in the second part of the game and finish it of at 27:16.
