The Eagles' defense hopes to get back on track versus a middle-of-the-pack Seahawks scoring offense.

The Seattle Seahawks, the Cincinnati Bengals, and the Green Bay Packers have all scored 280 points this season. All are looking up at 16 teams who have scored more.

Seattle has lost four straight. Their point differential sits at -38. If there was ever a game that would allow the Eagles defense to get its mojo back, it would be this one.

Here are a handful of guys to watch when the Hawks are scrimmaging on offense.

1. Zach Charbonnet, running back

Seattle's talented rookie was questionable ahead of the Hawks' recent NFC West battle with the San Francisco 49ers. He played and did a decent job while stacking 44 yards on nine carries and catching one pass for four yards. Keep an eye on him this week.

2. Kenneth Walker III, running back

Kenneth Walker III leads Seattle in both rushing yards (634) and rushing TDs (six). He was questionable in the days leading up to the Seahawks' game versus the 49ers but played, and he should play on MNF too.

3. D.K. Metcalf, wide receiver

With the arrival of DeVonta Smith and A.J. Brown, the Eagles have finally gotten over the wide receiver envy they harbored for Seattle because of D.K. Metcalf's presence.

This is still one of the game's best at his position as he leads his team in both receiving yards (864) and TD receptions (seven) while ranking second on his team in receptions (51). Only Tyler Locket has more (65)

4. Jaxon Smith-Njigba, slot receiver

We've been concerned about the Eagles' slot cornerback position all season. Things won't get any easier with Jaxon Smith-Njigba lining up for Seattle.

Their young rising star has 49 grabs, 493 receiving yards, and a pair of TDs on his stat sheet so far.

5. Noah Fant, tight end

The Eagles have had difficulty in covering tight ends often, and the task gets a tad tougher again this week as Noah Fant leads the charge for Seattle. His backup Colby Parkinson is also someone to watch. Both are capable of making big plays when the ball is tossed in their direction.

Those are five Seahawks you should watch on offense. Let's look at the other side of the ball.
