Eagles vs. Seahawks Final Thoughts and Pick

Philadelphia has been at home for almost a month and will play a third straight game at Lincoln Financial Field. Plagued by injuries, Philadelphia took another hit as stud RT Lane Johnson suffered a concussion last week. Clean through the first quarter, Wentz was sacked five times after Johnson left the game. Howard and Jeffery both sat out last week and are questionable for this contest.

Prior to its bye, Seattle posted a third straight win as it knocked off undefeated San Francisco 27-24 in OT on the road. With wins over Pittsburgh, Cleveland and Atlanta, the Seahawks are 3-0 in Eastern time zone contests this year. Hollister, with three TD in two games, has become a dependable red-zone weapon for Wilson. Lockett is questionable while Josh Gordon makes his second start for Seattle.

Pick: Seahawks +1.5

Season Record: 6-20
