What a weird matchup this is, as both teams would move into sole possession of first place in their division despite the fact that Seattle is 7-3 on the season and the Eagles are 3-6-1. NFC East fever, baby!!!
The last two times these teams have squared off, Seattle won by a score of 17-9, including a road win in last year’s playoffs. Oddly enough, if the playoffs started today, Seattle would be heading right back to the City of Brotherly Love for a game.
Now, my initial thoughts were to take Seattle in this spot, even as a road favorite, but it depends on your feel for how Pete Carroll is going to play it. He spent the first eight weeks of the season Letting Russ cook, and it worked out great. Wilson played at an MVP-level, something that was totally unsustainable, and now the regression monster has hit. Carroll has hinted at taking a more run friendly approach, and that would play right into the hands of the Philly defense, who has been better against the ground game than teams going to the air.
On the other side of the ball, Carson Wentz is a mess. There are rumblings that Jalen Hurts is going to move into the starting lineup. I could sit here and analyze a number of different metrics breaking down just how bad Wentz has been this season, but in the spirit of efficiency, just trust me: He’s bad. Maybe only better than Sam Darnold and whatever the hell they were doing at quarterback in that New Orleans-Denver game.
Seattle’s defense has been utterly putrid this season, but I do think it’s important to note that where they’ve really struggled is with explosive passing plays. Seattle has decent linebackers and can slow down tight ends, and they’ve added Carlos Dunlap to help get some pressure on opposing quarterbacks. The Eagles wide receiving corps sounds like they are actually just a bunch of guys that were created in Year Nine of a Madden franchise.
So all that said, Eagles-Seahawks feels like a game that is going to be ugly and low-scoring. You can still get the total at 48.5, and 48 is a key number. It’s trending down, so get it before it moves too far.
