The Eagles have a nice opportunity to get back on track in Week 15 versus the Seahawks.

Monday Night Football... It's kind of a big deal. It always has been. It always will be. Our grandmothers and grandfathers loved it. One day, we'll all transition to that Philadelphia Eagles pep rally in the sky, and long after we're gone, our children and grandchildren will still be watching one of the biggest brands in all of sports.

Prime-time NFL action has left much to be desired in 2023. Many of these games have been awful. That's why the Birds and Seattle Seahawks were flexed to the final game of Week 15, to spare us a Kansas City Chiefs/New England Patriots watch. Strangely enough, however, that might have been interesting.

By now, you've heard all of the discussions. The Eagles have lost two straight. Much of the fan base is panicking. Many believe Philly will get back on track versus Seattle. We agree. Here's how we see things unfolding.

Jalen Hurts... Marcus Mariota... Whoever... The Eagles rack up 28 points or more REGARDLESS of who the quarterback is.

What a difference a day makes. When we laid heads to pillows on Saturday night, Sean Desai was the defensive coordinator, and we assumed Jalen Hurts would be playing. Fast forward to the present, the discussion has changed some.

Matt Patricia is the defensive play caller now. QB1, Jalen Hurts, has been listed as questionable because of an illness, but whether he plays or we see Marcus Mariota, the Hawks defense is going to give up some points.

We're calling for 28 big ones. Seattle forgets to play defense sometimes.
