NFL Sunday Night Spotlight - Seahawks vs. EaglesPublished December 7, 2014 by Sol FH
Seattle Seahawks vs Philadelphia Eagles live at 21:25 (UK).
The Seahawks have dominated in the last two weeks of action and look like they could take over top spot in the NFC West. Seattle put a dent into the records of both the San Francisco 49ers and the Arizona Cardinals in their last two game, oddly enough with the same score of 19-3.
Now ranked fifth in the NFL, the Seahawks face the Eagles in Philadelphia and with the way both teams are playing this could be the NFC Championship game preview.
The Eagles are in first place in the NFC East and are coming off a huge win against the Cowboys in Week 13. Philadelphia are in fourth place for most points, most yards and are in fifth place in overall pass yards and sixth for rushing. The main advantage working in the Eagles’ favor is that they are 6-0 at home and the Seahawks have struggled on-the-road so far.
Seattle will have a healthy roster going into tonight’s game. Their defense looks just as strong as it did last season and Russell Wilson looks like he is ready to lead his team to another Super Bowl.
Mark Sanchez is proving to be an excellent QB, picking up the weight left over from Foles’ collarbone injury. The first-round Jets draft pick is taking his team to distances that the critics thought wouldn’t be possible. LeSean McCoy is getting his formidable stride back and has rushed for 289 yards over the last two weeks.
