Can the Philadelphia Eagles finally break the jinx?
You’ve been reminded of this so often that you have to be sick of hearing it by now. The Philadelphia Eagles have never beaten the Seattle Seahawks with Russell Wilson under center. The good news is they seem to be getting close.

In two home dates versus the ‘Hawks during the 2019-2020 season, the “Birds” defense played well enough to help their team win, but Carson Wentz stunk it up in Week 12 and left the Wild Card Game after Jadeveon Clowney morphed into a WWE superstar and went “Hulk Smash” on Philly’s star signal-caller in Philly’s lone playoff game.
Both games resulted in identical 17-9 scores, but as mentioned, Philly was on the wrong side of the point total. With the additions the Eagles have made on both sides of the ball, they should be able to score more this time around, but Seattle has added what they hope might be a couple of difference-makers via the draft, particularly in a very underrated Jordyn Brooks.
This one goes down during Week 12 on Monday Night Football. Expect a few Eagles fans to gather around the television for this one. Hopefully, Philly can break the jinx.
