  • NFL: Masterful Russell Wilson leads Seahawks past Eagles 24-10

SEATTLE-Chris Long looked like he'd just seen a ghost.

At their own 42-yard-line with 10:06 remaining in the fourth quarter Russell Wilson attempted to run for a first down before lateraling the ball to Mike Davis, who took the ball an additional 17 yards for a first down. They improved to 22-4-1 in such games since Carroll took over in 2010, the best record in the National Football League during that span. But that did not happen, and the Eagles must learn from their mistakes going into next week. For the first time in a long while, they have made a successful move to address that problem, and the play of Brown down the stretch could be key to keeping Wilson playing at his best. The team that had the best record in the NFC was coming to play the team that has been the standard in the NFC for the past five years. The Eagles were the only team in the league to score at least 20 in every game this season. Last week Pederson said that being in a dogfight, a game where they trailed by a score or two and had to rally back, would be a great test for his team. The numbers were not bad, as Wentz threw for the most yards in a game he has all season. But they also have just one win against a team that now has a winning record (a 28-23 victory against the Panthers in Week 6). After a turnover on downs and then Wentz's sixth interception of the season, the Eagles' fate was sealed as they would drop to 10-2 on the season. Guard Brandon Brooks called the loss a "wake-up call". He didn't go into specifics, but he noted that practice wasn't up to snuff last week. "We're still a Super Bowl team".

The Seattle defense, meanwhile, showed it is adapting to life without cornerback Richard Sherman (on injured reserve with a torn Achilles tendon) and safety Kam Chancellor (out for the remainder of the season with a neck injury) in one of the unit's most dominant performances of the season. But they have Wilson, the do-it-all offensive engine who's had a hand in all but one Seahawks offensive touchdown this season, and they have experience winning games in December and January. The Eagles have been to the postseason once in the past seven seasons.

The Eagles' offense really put themselves in a hole early with a slow first half.

"He was in the zone", Seattle wide receiver Doug Baldwin said. If that does not happen, and the Eagles score, the game is tied at 10-10 and Philadelphia probably goes on to win the game.

So where Davis caught the ball (between the 48 and 49-yard line) was closer to the Eagles' goal line than where Wilson tossed it from (the 47). However, the touchdowns, along with the targets he saw Sunday, make him a worthwhile flex option heading into crunch time of the fantasy calendar.

"I contemplated in my head whether I wanted to say that out loud, whether I wanted to jinx it, but I do".

Wilson was heroic, but the Eagles were also hurt by self-inflicted wounds.

Fans got really mad-as in death-threat mad-and nearly two weeks ago EA caved , temporarily suspending the in-game purchase system. So if you did a bunch of cosmetic things, you might start to violate the canon. "So you might see some of that", Jorgensen said.

There were a few curious choices Pederson made in the Eagles' 24-10 defeat to the Seattle Seahawks.

For Carson Wentz, he had a very up and down night. "I already challenged one in the half and lost that, so I didn't want to risk another timeout".

The biggest question came after the coach's decision not to challenge a forward lateral on a Russell Wilson's scramble.

There was the matter still of whether Wilson got away with an illegal forward pass in the fourth quarter with Seattle trying to protect a 17-10 lead. Wilson seemed to throw the pass slightly behind him, though replays showed that the spot where the back caught the ball appeared in front of the line where Wilson released it.

Here's what Doug Pederson told the media about not throwing the challenge flag on the play. At the same time, overturning that play could have changed the game. Seattle doesn't have much margin for error now, at 8-4 in a power conference and with Jacksonville and the Rams on the schedule in the next two weeks.

Seattle's impressive win over the Eagles was a boost the Seahawks needed. Wentz's 51-yard throw to Agholor with a defender's arms wrapped around him. "We didn't get all the necessary looks".

If they do, that would include beating the Rams in Week 15 and likely going into the playoffs as division champion.
