Seahawks earn an A on defense for keeping Eagles in check

Place-kicker Blair Walsh ended the drive with a 46-yard field goal. The Eagles offense was off kilter.

Pulling out a victory to the tune of 24-10 over Philadelphia, Seattle managed to outperform an opponent coming in with the League's leading offensive lineup-a feat attributed to an fantastic defense on the Seahawks' part.

Wilson tossed three touchdowns and rang up a 118.6 passer rating while also running for 31 more yards as the Seahawks won for the second time in as many weeks.

The team's playoff magic number remains at one after a game was just too sloppy and off-track.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz spent much of his time in between series sitting on a Gatorade cooler at the 50-yard line, poring over film on his tablet in search of answers.

The Eagles had been averaging a league-best 31.9 points per game, but the Seahawks held Wentz and Co.to a season-low scoring total despite allowing 425 yards.

In the end, Wentz made more mistakes: a bad overthrow of a wide open Nelson Agholor early in the game, a fumble through the end zone later. Seattle scored on a one-yard pass from Wilson to Tyler Lockett a few plays later to take a 17-3 lead. Wentz whipped the ball around to his most talented playmakers and the Birds marched into the red zone, where they've been so efficient this season. His 15-yard play to J.D. McKissic put Seattle ahead by 14 points with 7 minutes, 29 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter. The New Orleans Saints and Los Angeles Rams are right behind them at 9-3.

It was a tough way to go down after so many dominating performances.

Wilson outdueled Carson Wentz, who led the National Football League with 28 touchdown passes but had his streak of games with multiple touchdown passes stopped at seven.

Turned out that the Eagles fell short on all counts.

"We didn't waver", Wilson said after the game. "We had our chances and we didn't capitalize". It rolled out of the back of the end zone, leading to a touchback and deflating the rejuvenated Eagles.

The Eagles would have clinched their first NFC East title and playoff berth since 2013, but now they'll have to wait at least another week to wrap up those accomplishments.

The Seattle Seahawks performance Sunday night proved to be one of their best and most decisive of the season as they put an end to the Eagles' nine-game winning streak. "The key is bouncing back the right way". His biggest play came on a third-and-8 in the fourth quarter when he scrambled up the middle of the field and then, just before getting hit by Corey Graham, flipped a lateral to running back Mike Davis for a 17-yard first down.

The offensive line had one of its better games considering the pedigree of the opponent, though the running game was still hit and miss. Graham recorded his NFL-leading ninth red-zone touchdown, on an 11-yard back-shoulder catch against safety Malcolm Jenkins at the front left pylon.
