Greetings, Raider fans! As we celebrate the Raiders’ victory over the hapless Giants, there’s one more game to watch tonight. The NFC-leading Eagles are in Seattle to take on the Seahawks in a battle of playoff teams.
The Eagles are easily the best team in the NFL right now, and have an incredible defense to go with an explosive offense led by QB Carson Wentz. They have weapons everywhere, with RBs LeGarrette Blount and Jay Ajayi and WRs Nelson Agholor and Alshon Jeffery. TE Zach Ertz is also one of the finest players at his position.
Seattle is a MASH unit at the moment with most of their vaunted secondary on injured reserve, leaving only Earl Thomas holding down the fort. But Bobby Wagner is having career season and DT Sheldon Richardson has made an impact on the defensive line.
It should be a great game, so let’s see if Seatle can pull off some of their home-field magic against a vastly superior team!
