Eagles vs. Seahawks: 10 Seattle stars who hope to wreck Philly's bounce back game

We're calling for an Eagles bounce back game, but let's talk about a few guys on the Seahawks roster anyway.

The Eagles offense should be able to find its momentum again versus the Seahawks offense.

The Eagles' road to consistency must roll over the speed bump that is the Seattle Seahawks' defense. Here are a handful of guys to watch when the good guys have the ball.

6. Julian Love, strong safety

Seattle has some phenomenal safeties on their roster. Their guy, Julian Love, does it all.

13 games into the current campaign, he ranks third on the team in total tackles and ranks second on the team in solo stops. He has also raked in two interceptions, seven pass breakups, and a forced fumble on the season.

7. Quandre Diggs, free safety

Quandre Diggs' 73 total tackles rank him fourth among all Seahawks defenders. He also has three pass breakups and an interception on his 2023 resume. Brian Johnson, Jalen Hurts, and the Eagles offense will need to know where he is at all times.

8. Dre'Mont Jones, EDGE

Linebackers Darrell Taylor and Jordyn Brooks are tied for the team lead in sacks with 4.5 apiece. Defensive end Dre'Mont Jones is nipping at their heels with 3.5 quarterback takedowns of his own.

Brandon Graham wears the number 55 jersey for Philadelphia. Jones does so for Seattle. Keep an eye on both as they like to get to the other team's quarterback.

Jalen better keep his head on a swivel as he takes the field for this one as Seattle likes to send pressure.

9. Devon Witherspoon, cornerback

Devon Witherspoon left Seattle's Week 14 game with an injury and didn't return. Michael Jackson should start if he can't go this week. Keep an eye on the rookie Tariq 'Riq' Woolen though.

The latter is a rookie. His nine pass breakups and two interceptions this season could go a long way in helping him pushing Philly's Jalen Carter for the Defensive Rookie of the Year Award.

10. Bobby Wagner, linebacker

A legend and a future Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee, Bobby Wagner hasn't lost much at 33, if anything. He leads the Hawks in total tackles (132) and those of the solo variety (72).

He must be game planned for in every game where Seattle is an opponent. Maybe watching him in Week 15 will convince Howie Roesman that great linebacker play is important.

The Eagles and Seahawks share the stage at Lumen Field in the final game of the Week 15 slate. This one should be fun. We expect Philly to come out on the winning side and begin placing check marks in the win column again.
