Seattle Ruins Eagles Dream, 17-9

The Seattle Seahawks flew into Lincoln Financial Field for a First Round Wild Card contest with the Philadelphia Eagles on a windy Sunday afternoon.

Carson Wentz, Playing in his first playoff game was unable to get his mojo rising when a clear Helmet to helmet hit from Jadevon Clowney ended the season for Wentz.

As bad as the non-call was, as a fan, I was more incensed that Philadelphia did not take measures to level the playing field.

Also, after a 10 season career, back up, Josh McCown was forced into action and played well, in relief.

Russell Wilson was just effective enough to make the difference and iced the game with a 56-yard strike to D.K. Metcalf that brought a hush over the Philadelphia faithful.

A Philadelphia comeback was snuffed out when Miles Sanders could not handle a 4th down pass from McCown.

Eagle Coach, Doug Peterson entered his sixth playoff game with being the underdog in each at now has a 4-2 playoff record.
