The Seattle Seahawks are coming off an emotional win last week at New England. Their offense seems to be coming together just in time for another charge at a division title and the postseason. The Philadelphia Eagles rookie quarterback has made quite a good impression this season. The Philadelphia Eagles is looking for its first away victory and has a difficult task in knocking off the Seahawks to get it. The Seattle Seahawks are the favorites after a colossal win in New England and a spotless 4-0 SU home record. The matchup between the Seattle Seahawks and the Philadelphia Eagles is scheduled to take place on Sunday, November 20, 2016, at 4:25 p.m. ET at CenturyLink Field.
The Philadelphia Eagles rookie quarterback Carson Wentz hasn’t been affected by the big leagues and has had a lot of success in his first season. The Eagles are now 17th in total offense with 344 yards per game. They have been improving with 400-plus yards in back-to-back weeks and average 25.1 points which is 10th in the NFL. Philadelphia has scored 20-plus points in 11 straight games, which is the longest streak in the NFL. Philadelphia has one of the game’s best defenses as well. They are sixth with allowing just 323 yards per game, and are tied for third with allowing 17.8 points per game.
The Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was hobbled by ankle and knee injuries for much of the season. The offense stumbled as Wilson looked uncomfortable in the pocket and didn’t display his usual effectiveness at extending plays and getting outside the tackles. During the past two weeks, Wilson looks like he got his mobility and elusiveness back and the Seahawks’ offense has thrived. On Sunday night the Seattle Seahawks had an impressive road win over the New England Patriots. Wilson had his best game of the season throwing for 348 yards and three touchdowns without a pick. The Seattle Seahawks is 21st in the NFL in scoring at 21.4 points per game and 20th in total offense at 341.9 yards per game. The Seahawks have a great defense and are ranked ninth in allowing 338.4 yards per game, and second in allowing just 17.6 points per game. If the Eagles had this game at home we would probably lean towards them, but it’s another story at the Link and have to give the edge to the Seahawks.
