This one is a bit of a cop out, but the Seahawks defense as a whole looked insane on the night, giving up just 10 points to the hottest offensive team in the league with their secondary incredibly battered.
"We had to play great football", said Wilson.
"We had to come out strong and stay the course and then finish really strong". However, on their fifth possession, they got the ball moving done the field to Alshon Jefferies, Zack Ertz, and Torrey Smith. That skill was on full display Sunday night. He finished the game 20-for-31 as a passer for 227 yards, tossing three touchdowns and failing to turn the ball over.
It was also the first time the Eagles had trailed by 10 or more points since the Week 2 game at Kansas City. After zig zagging and creating plays with his feet with only seconds left remaining in the first quarter, he threw a touched down to Jimmy Graham, which capped off a 5 play for 85 yards.
RED-ZONE JIMMY: Jimmy Graham continues to be Wilson's favorite target near the end zone. The Patriots improved to 10-2 - their 15th straight seasons with at least 10 wins - but it wasn't always pretty.
But the Eagles answered in the fourth quarter with a touchdown of their own, their only one of the game. Rex Burkhead rushed for two touchdowns. That streak dated to the end of last season. Gronkowski drove his shoulder into White as he lay face down on the turf after the whistle. Yes, their run game can be stopped, although having to play from behind in the second half limited the amount of running opportunities. "I thought that was Russell showing you everything he's all about", Seattle coach Pete Carroll said. "I don't really believe in those type of shots". Making matters worse, Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor was carted to the locker room with a knee injury early in the fourth quarter.
The Eagles managed a field goal in the second quarter to come within three points of Seattle.
With 10 minutes left in the first quarter, Blair Welsh kicked a field goal to draw first blood and after a couple more three and outs Wilson started to heat up.
In Carson, California, Philip Rivers passed for 344 yards and hit Keenan Allen for a touchdown and the surging Chargers moved into a tie for first place in the AFC West with a victory over the winless Browns.
