Philadelphia Eagles Football

Eagles Could Clinch the NFC East With Win

The fans at CenturyLink Field will NFC’s top-seeded Philadelphia Eagles and the Seattle Seahawks when they take their seats on Sunday. The Sunday Night Football matchup will kick-off around 8:25 pm EST. NBC will have the coverage.

The Eagles are winners of nine straight games. They will look to make it 10 in a row against the Seahawks. The Seahawks are battling to remain in playoff contention. Philadelphia already owns the best record in the league. They are also the only team to score at least 20 points in all 11 games this season.

Oddsmakers opened the Eagles as -5.5-point favorites versus the Seahawks, while the game’s total opened at 48. The Eagles are now 3-5-point favorites and the total is down to 46.

Seattle Fighting for Playoff Lives

Seattle was a 24-13 winner in its last match on the road against the San Francisco 49ers. They covered the -7-point spread as favorites, while the total score of 37 sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.

The banged-up Seahawks are still quite dangerous at home, and especially at night. They have gone 21-4-1 in Sunday, Monday and Thursday night games since 2010. They’re 13-2 at home in prime time under coach Pete Carroll.

Seattle will be without key players Richard Sherman, who had asseason-ending Achilles injury. Strong safety Kam Chancellor has neck issues and defensive end Cliff Avril also has neck issues.

Quarterback Russell Wilson continues to play at a high level. He has completed 256 of 411 passes  for 3,029 yards, 23 touchdowns and eight interceptions. Wilson has started 91 consecutive games. That is the fifth-longest active streak.

The Seahawks are attempting to reach the playoffs for the sixth straight year. They’re seventh in the NFC playoff race at the moment.

Wentz is Key to Eagles Success

Philadelphia was a 31-3 winner in its last match at home against the Chicago Bears. They covered the -14-point spread as favorites, while the total score of 34 sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.

Much of the offensive success is because of how second-year quarterback Carson Wentz has played. He is a legitimate Most Valuable Player candidate. Wentz is 213 of 354, 60.2 percent,  for 2,657 yards, 28 touchdowns and only five interceptions.

Wentz is just the third quarterback in league history to throw at least 28 touchdowns and no more than five interceptions through the first 11 games. He is in good company by joining New England’s Tom Brady and Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers. Brady accomplished the feat in 2007 and 2015. Green Bay’s Rodgers did it in 2011 and 2014.

Wentz has also thrown multiple touchdowns in seven straight games. That is tied for the longest streak in Eagles history. Wentz’s 28 touchdown passes ranks fifth in Eagles history behind Sonny Jurgensen, who had 32 in 1961. Then Donovan McNabb had 31 in 2004. Rounding out the group is Randall Cunningham, who had 30 in 1990, and Norm Snead, who had 29 in 1967.

The Eagles have allowed a only 716 rushing yards this season. That is the fewest allowed through 11 games in team history. In last Sunday’s victory over the Chicago Bears, the Eagles gave up just six rushing yards.
