THE TEAM NEWS

SEATTLE SEAHAWKS

  • Seattle will have enjoyed their bye week after they became the first team to defeat San Francisco in their big NFC West clash and the Seahawks are now just one game behind their rivals.
  • Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is having a superb year and he will come into this game looking for another big display to boost his MVP hopes with him producing some brilliant displays despite lacking quality on the offensive line.
  • Wide receiver Tyler Lockett suffered a lower leg injury against the 49ers which ended up hospitalising him after the game and while he was unable to practice on Wednesday, head coach Pete Carroll expects him to suit up on Sunday.

PHILADELPHIA EAGLES

  • Philadelphia kept the score close against New England but never looked like toppling them in a disappointing display on home turf and they now sit a game behind Dallas at the top of the NFC East standings.
  • The Eagles have injury issues across their roster and lost Lane Johnson to a concussion against the Patriots last week with the tackle needing to pass the protocols in order to feature this week.
  • Running back Jordan Howard missed last week’s game due to a shoulder injury but he looks set to return this week after he featured in Wednesday’s practice in a limited capacity but if he has a setback, Jay Ajayi may be in line for some carries after rejoining the team.

THE PREDICTION

Philadelphia need to be much better if they are to make the post-season but their difficult games keep coming as they host an in-form Seattle. The Seahawks come into this on the back of their bye and the refreshed outfit are shaping as a serious contender for a tilt at the Super Bowl. The Eagles were not good enough last week and the Seahawks are likely to have too much for them in this one even if the home team put in a better performance.
