The Seattle Seahawks flexed their muscles against the Philadelphia Eagles with a 24-14 victory to improve to 9-4 and stay in contention for the NFC West title and No. 1 seed in the playoffs.
The Eagles had averaged over 30 points a game, but the Seahawks defense continued to show Super Bowl form as quarterback Russell Wilson put on a fine performance.
Wilson threw for 263 yards and two touchdowns on 22-of-37 passing, and he added 48 yards and a touchdown on 10 carries.
Running back Marshawn Lynch ran for 86 yards on 23 carries, and wide receiver Doug Baldwin led the team in receiving with 97 yards and a touchdown on five receptions.
Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez received a harsh dose of reality as the Seahawks held him to 96 yards on 10-of-20 passing with an interception, but he was able to throw two touchdown passes.
Running back LeSean McCoy also had a forgettable performance with 50 rushing yards on 19 carries with a lost fumble, and wide receiver Jeremy Maclin was held to 21 receiving yards on three catches although he had a touchdown.
The Seahawks will have an opportunity to bury the San Francisco 49ers’ playoff hopes as they have a rematch with them at home, and the Eagles will seek redemption and a bigger lead in the NFC East by sweeping the Dallas Cowboys at home.
