Russell Wilson's 3 TDs Lead Seahawks Past Carson Wentz, Eagles on SNF

Philadelphia has no answer for Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson, who dodged pass rushers and darted throws across the field all night.

Philadelphia's touchdown came on a 27-yard pass from Carson Went to Nelson Agholor. Agholor absolutely torched the Seattle secondary all night, finding gaps in the coverage early and often. They were so flustered that players ran into each other numerous times. He again looked like somebody who's going to be in the MVP conversation at the end of the season, improvising masterfully - heck, unbelievably at times - in completing 20 of 31 passes for 227 yards and three touchdowns, and rushing for another 31 yards.

Agholor breaking out against the Seahawks to the tune of 141 yards and a score is a bit of poetic justice, considering the stinker he had there last season. The Eagles' season ends at home vs. the Cardinals, but they can't afford to step on too many land mines before that potential Week 17 walkover. Talk about bouncing back from adversity. "This team is really good". At 10-2, they are now in a tie with the Minnesota Vikings. They did it earlier this season, in Week 5 against the Rams.

Playing in a hostile road environment after a cross-country trip, the Birds didn't have a pass play of more than 10 yards in the first half.

"I thought Russell was phenomenal tonight".

Even if the call had been overturned, I think that's bad process on Pederson's part. It was a borderline play that appeared close to a forward pass but Philadelphia didn't challenge.

Still, the group faces the risk of a new flood of oil coming from US shale fields as crude strengthens. Some analysts say that the Saudis have underestimated shale's threat.

Former Eagles cornerback Byron Maxwell sealed the deal when he picked off Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz in the end zone. Nothing is worse than coming away from a long drive with nothing to show for it. Lockett's first touchdown of the season was set up by a 47-yard Baldwin reception in which Baldwin's foot dragged out of bounds just shy of the end zone.

On Philadelphia's next possession, there was another missed opportunity that Wentz squandered. Agholor had lots of room to gain yards after the catch but Wentz overthrew him resulting in an incompletion. He underthrew Agholor badly, and he had to go to ground to make sure he brought it in. Nothing to panic over, but a part of his evolution all the same. The hometown fans in Seattle caused havoc for the Eagles, getting to Wentz multiple times throughout the night, and the noise eventually ended in a huge Seahawks victory. I just don't understand the logic behind turning to Barner, who is a useful contributor but not my idea of someone you turn to when you need a clutch play.

Seattle became the first team to score an offensive touchdown in the first quarter against the Eagles on Graham's 11-yard TD catch. If the challenge he made on Torrey Smith's catch was an example of how not to handle your replay reviews, this was the exact opposite.

Well, you can't be ideal every game. You act conservatively with it when there's not much to gain from the replay review. Two plays later, Graham got a sack on Russell Wilson when he was lined up at defensive tackle.

The Eagles had been averaging a league-best 31.9 points per game, but the Seahawks held Wentz and a season-low scoring total despite allowing 425 yards. "We're still talented. We can be the best of the best".
