Here are five Hawks that the Philadelphia Eagles better be aware of.

Much has been made about the Seattle Seahawks offense, and rightfully so. At times, they can seemingly score at will but heading into the Monday night game, they’re just as banged up as the Birds have been at times. It’s hard to determine who is even playing.

1. Russell Wilson, quarterback

Well, we know Russell Wilson will be in the lineup. He hasn’t missed a start since he took over as the guy. He’s also a bit of an Eagles killer. In five games versus the Birds, he’s undefeated.

2. D.K. Metcalf, wide receiver

The Birds get their third look at the wide receiver that they actually should have drafted in the second round of 2019’s selection meeting, D.K. Metcalf (they took JJ Arcega-Whiteside instead). In his first two games versus Philly, Metcalf’s tally looks like this: ten catches, 195 yards, and a touchdown.

3. Tyler Lockett, wide receiver

Tyler Lockett and Freddie Swain were both full participants in practice on Thursday. The former was also a full participant on Friday. The latter sat out. David Moore didn’t work out on Thursday but participated in a limited capacity on Friday.

The assumption is Lockett will play on Monday. The question is whether or not Philly’s second-best cover guy is good enough to handle Seattle’s second-best receiver. The film says that may not be the case.
