Eagles vs Seahawks History

The Eagles and Seahawks have faced each other 17 times in the regular season and once in the postseason. The Seahawks lead the regular-season series 10-7 and lead postseason 1-0. The Eagles have not beaten the Seahawks since 2008 and are on a six-game losing streak.

Predictions

Carson Wentz is facing the league’s worst secondary. Miles Sanders is facing the league’s third-best run defense. What does that mean? Finally committing to the run game! Anywho, this isn’t going to be a close game. Outside of Darius Slay, who can cover the Seahawks receivers? We haven’t even mentioned Tyler Lockett who is having another great year. Chris Carson is back, as well. The Eagles may finally be able to put up more than 17 points, but Jim Schwartz will have a hard time scheming up ways to control Russell Wilson. Eagles lose 27-40.

Eagles Stat Predictions:

  • Wentz: 25/41 270 yards 3 TDs
  • Sanders: 11 rush 65 yards
  • Reagor: 6 rec 80 yards 1 TD
  • Fulgham: 4 rec 50 yards 1 TD
  • Goedert: 7 rec 74 yards 1 TD
  • Slay: holds Metcalf to 80 yards
  • Everyone else on defense: confused

Last Week’s Eagles Predictions:

  • Wentz: 19/31 210 yards 2 TD (21/35 235 yards 2 TD 2 INT)
  • Sanders: 12 rushes 80 yards (16 rush 66 yards)
  • Fulgham: 5 rec 70 yards 1 TD (1 rec 8 yards)
  • Jeffery: 6 rec 50 yards 1 TD (lol)
