Thursday December 1
Eagles (4-7) @ Seahawks (4-7)
Century Link Field, Seattle 8:20 (NFLN)
Favorite Eagles by 3
Last Week Eagles lost to Patriots 38-20, Seahawks lost to Redskins 23-17
Fast Fact Despite on gaining 31 yards on 10 carries last week Eagles RB LeSean McCoy leads the NFL in rushing.
These two teams were playoff teams last year, seriously! Both teams are lurching this year toward unremarkable finishes as the injury bug has bitten rather hard. With Michael Vick la no-go for the third straight week, Vince Young continues what is tantamount to an extended audition for his services elsewhere. The supposed vaunted “dream team” defense got shredded by Tom Brady and the Pats last week to no one’s surprise. Meanwhile the Seahawks seem to find a way to self destruct more often than not as their offense went into hibernation last and their defense let Rex Grossman rally the Redskins from 10 down in the 4th. The now oft-maligned Eagles defense should find the sledding a bit easier against the pedestrian Seahawks offense. Despite being down a number of playmakers on both sides of the ball should be able to lean on the dynamic rushing talents of LeSean McCoy and eke out a win.
