Through 3 Quarters
The Seattle Seahawks were expected to win this one, and so far that’s exactly how it’s playing out. They have emerged as the frontrunner after three quarters and are ahead of the Philadelphia Eagles 17-9.
Seattle has been relying on WR DK Metcalf, who has caught nine passes for 146 yards, and RB Chris Carson, who has punched in one rushing touchdown. No one has had a standout game offensively for Philadelphia, but they have gotten one touchdown from QB Carson Wentz.
Here’s an interesting fact: the Seahawks also had an eight-point lead after the third quarter in the teams’ last meeting.

What to Know
After two games on the road, the Philadelphia Eagles are heading back home. They will take on the Seattle Seahawks at 8:15 p.m. ET on Monday at Lincoln Financial Field. Philadelphia lost both of their matches to Seattle last season on scores of 9-17 and 9-17, so they’re hoping to turn the tables this season.
The Eagles didn’t finish too far behind, but the squad still lost 22-17 to the Cleveland Browns last week. No one had a standout game offensively for Philadelphia, but they got scores from TE Dallas Goedert, TE Richard Rodgers, and LB Alex Singleton. QB Carson Wentz ended up with a passer rating of 123.80.
Meanwhile, Seattle was able to grind out a solid win over the Arizona Cardinals last Thursday, winning 28-21. Seattle’s success was spearheaded by the efforts of QB Russell Wilson, who passed for two TDs and 197 yards on 28 attempts in addition to picking up 42 yards on the ground, and RB Carlos Hyde, who punched in one rushing touchdown. Wilson’s performance made up for a slower contest against the Los Angeles Rams two weeks ago.
The Eagles are expected to lose this next one by 6.5. Now might not be the best time to take Philadelphia against the spread since they’ve let down bettors for the past two consecutive games.
Seattle’s victory lifted them to 7-3 while Philadelphia’s defeat dropped them down to 3-6-1. The Seahawks have been dynamite on the offensive side of the ball, averaging 31.80 points per game. We’ll see if Philadelphia can find some way to disarm them.
