The Philadelphia Eagles will once again face one of the best teams in the National Football Conference in the defending Super Bowl Champions the Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks are currently on a two game winning streak when they defeated their hated division rival the San Francisco 49ers on Thanksgiving Night. This will be one of the Seahawks defense biggest challenges of the season in stopping the fast pace offense of the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Eagles have skilled players at every position on offense that can put an end to the Seahawks winning streak. I expect both defenses to be challenged this Sunday due to the fact that each offense will be the first that they have seen this season.
The Eagles will have to figure out a way to contain dual threat quarterback Russell Wilson and the Seahawks will have to catch their breath and figure out a way to stop the fast paced offense of Chip Kelly and the Philadelphia Eagles. If the Eagles want to win this ball game they must use every offensive weapon in their arsenal to take out the Legion of Boom defense led by Richard Sherman and Earl Thomas.
Eagles head coach Chip Kelly cannot ignore one part of their offense and expect to beat the defending Super Bowl Champions. I say that because if you turned the ball over to Seahawks and let Russell Wilson beat you with either his legs or his cannon arm it could be a long night in the City of Brotherly Love. Once you give the Seahawks a leg up in a ball game it could be hard to mount a comeback against them their defense is that good.
Even though they may not have the depth they had a year ago you still have to be aware of what type of damage they can do to an opposing team. My prediction for this ball game is that it will not be a high scoring affair and Pete Carrol will figure out a way to minimize the big play ability of the Eagles with a fourth quarter comeback victory.
