Seahawks take on the NFL's top team on Sunday Night Football
Seahawks take on the NFL's top team on Sunday Night Football

Seattle finds itself in another primetime matchup this week with a team that is almost certain to make the playoffs. In fact, if the 10-1 Philadelphia Eagles were to win on Sunday, they would earn a spot in the playoffs as the representative of the NFC East. 

Our Seahawks still have the NFC West title in their crosshairs. With a win over San Francisco, they continue to keep pace with the Rams. The win over the 49ers actually earned Seattle the tiebreaker over LA if they happen to finish in a tie. Of course a win over the Rams in a couple weeks will help get them into position if they still happen to be a game back at that point.

In the meantime, the Seahawks are looking to end a two-game losing streak at home. After losing to the Redskins a few weeks back and the loss to Atlanta two weeks ago, a win against the one-loss Eagles wouldn't just help keep Seattle in the playoff picture, it'll also help Russell Wilson get some more publicity toward a potential MVP season. But considering he's more that 85% of the Seahawks offense as is, that conversation already seems to be starting.

To get a win over the Eagles, the Seattle defensive line is going to have to play a big role in stopping a Philadelphia rushing attack that has been putting up 175+ yards for the past three games. They also have to keep from turning over the football. The Eagles are undefeated when their defense gets a turnover. In their one loss to the Chiefs--they lost the turnover battle.

Next up on the schedule: a trip to Jacksonville. And we learned this week that the game has shifted to a 1:25 Pacific Time kickoff. So no 10am starts for the Seahawks this year.

Chief Warrant Officer 3 Jeremy W. Bruffett led the Seahawks out of the tunnel. The 12 Flag was raised by Lieutenant Colonel Barbara Nichols, U.S. Army Nurse Corps, a veteran of WWII, Korea and Vietnam. At halftime they honored 11 local Nisei, or second generation Japanese American veterans, representing the 100th Infantry Battalion/442nd Regimental Combat Team and Military Intelligence Service (MIS). Former WWII POW, U.S. Army Sergeant Eugene Hughes, was honored as part of the USAA Salute to Service moment. Thanks to Gary Lott for covering this year's Salute to Service game between the Seahawks and the Falcons.

181: Russell’s campaign for MVP, Lacy shows his style in 49ers victory, Seahawks make up names to add to o-line depth


With the win over the San Francisco 49ers, Russell Wilson passed another big milestone as the winningest quarterback in NFL history through his first six seasons. He also became the fastest players to throw for 150 touchdowns and rush for 3,000 yards. That puts him up with only seven other NFL players in history to hit those numbers and half of the retired players on that list are in the Hall of Fame.

Bobby Wagner had another big game with an incredible interception and it was also a big day for tight ends. Nick Vannett caught his first touchdown pass in the NFL and Jimmy Graham now has more touchdown catches than any other Seahawks tight end in team history. Adam and Brandan talk about how much fun the tight ends room must be at the team facility and how it compares to the receiver's room.
