For the past four years (with Russell Wilson at the helm) the Seahawks get off to a slow start before coming an offensive threat, according to CBS Sports. Russell takes a while to warm up, as he has a 71.4% completion percentage in games 9-10, while he only completes 65.6% of his passes during the first 8 games of the season. How interesting.
They better be on fire because they’re facing the defensive heavy Eagles. Though Philly is 5-4 (and have lost four of their past six games) they’ve allowed the sixth-fewest yards and third-fewest points in the 2016 NFL season. Considering another bird-based team, the Arizona Cardinals, kept Seattle to a disgusting 6-6 tie, it might be a case of déjà vu all over again (credit to the late Yogi Berra.)
As for the Eagles, they need to make sure their offense is ready to battle the former Super Bowl Champions. They’re meeting Seattle on their home turf, a stadium that’s notorious for its volume. “You go in there confidently. You don’t worry about the extra outside noise and all those things,” Carson Wentz, 27, told Yahoo Sports. ”You just go in there and play ball.”
Yeah – about that. The Eagles are 1-4 on the road this season, and the Seahawks are 31-5 since 2012. It’s a safe bet to thing that the Eagles aren’t going to snatch a win here. Better bring the earplugs, Carson.
