Eagles vs. Seahawks Key Players to Watch
Jalen Hurts: Hurts and the Eagles’ offense did not score a single touchdown in last week’s loss against the Cowboys. The star quarterback completed 18-of-27 passes for 197 yards and ran for 30 yards.
The last time Hurts didn’t throw or rush for a touchdown was in Week 18 last season against the Giants. Hurts will try to bounce back against a Seattle defense that allows 243.6 passing yards (eighth-most in the NFL) and 24.5 points per game this season.
D.K. Metcalf: If you have Metcalf on your fantasy football team, this is the perfect week to start him. The star wide receiver has scored five touchdowns in three out of his last four games. He will be facing an Eagles’ defense that has struggled against the pass this season despite having two solid veteran cornerbacks (Darius Slay and James Bradberry). This season, Metcalf has 24 receptions for 356 yards and a touchdown at home.
Eagles vs. Seahawks Prediction and Pick
The Eagles haven’t been embarrassed in the last two weeks by the 49ers and Cowboys. With those two losses, they’ve dropped from the No. 1 seed to the No. 5 seed in the NFC playoffs.
However, the good news for Philadelphia is that they still control their destiny but must win on Monday night against the Seahawks. The Eagles need a fast start from Hurts and the offense, which has hindered them in both losses (12 total first-half points scored).
Luckily, the Eagles are playing a Seahawks’ defense, which gives up their share of points and yards through the air.
If the Eagles don’t turn over the football, they have the offensive weapons to put points on the scoreboard. At the same time, we should expect the Seahawks to move the ball against this Eagles’ defense.
Philadelphia has struggled to stop the run over their last three games (152.3 yards per game allowed), which is great news for Seahawks RBs Kenneth Walker III and Zach Charbonnet. If the Seahawks can get into second or third and short downs, it will open up the passing game for Metcalf, Tyler Lockett, and Jaxon Smith Njigba.
Speaking of the Seahawks’ passing game, we don’t know if Geno Smith will play after he didn’t suit up for last week’s contest against the 49ers because of a groin injury. If Smith is out, we will see Drew Lock for the second consecutive game.
At this current juncture with both teams, it’s hard to take either side because of how things have transpired over the last two weeks. Nonetheless, we will see some points scored on Monday as both defenses struggled to get off the field and give up big plays.
