But coach Pete Carroll did reach out to one this week for help in explaining a play in Sunday night's win over the Philadelphia Eagles. Lets go through this game and look into why this result doesn't necessarily mean the Eagles are doomed come playoff time. Especially coming out the first drive of the second half, the way we did.
It bounced up and around and eventually went out the back of the end zone for a Seahawks touchback. Most of the drives stalled because of mistakes and penalties.
During a fourth-quarter scramble, Wilson avoided getting creamed by defenders when he pitched the ball to running back Mike Davis, trailing to Wilson's right.
"Fumbled, it happens. It's tough to do that on the road", Wentz said. We just had to find it in that second half. "Trusting Blake's [Bortles] throwing and the wide receivers trusting that he's going to throw on point and have to go up and make a catch". If this was a preview of a potential playoff matchup, the Eagles are going to have to make sure they contain Wilson as well as play better in one on one match-ups against Seahawk receivers.
Green Bay Packers defensive end Dean Lowry took the NFC defensive award after he grabbed a loose ball in the air and ran 62 yards for a touchdown during the 26-20 overtime victory against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
If you could only watch three National Football League games this week, those three should provide plenty of entertainment.
The Eagles play a key conference game at the next week. The Eagles had more yards, first downs, and had the edge in time of possession. I tip my hat to him in that regard. But they play with the same intensity and expect the same out of everybody else.
This week's schedule includes several games that should be close, including three that involve teams that appear playoff-bound. And for now, don't worry about all the people who say this loss shows the Eagles aren't for real.
