It feels like it's been quite some time since the Eagles have faced a competitive opponent

Seattle isn't the team they USED to be, but they're still a tough matchup

Russell Wilson is able to carry the Seahawks' offense; how do the Eagles attack him if you're Jim Schwartz?

The Seahawks' offensive line is bad but Wilson can mitigate that

This could be a game where coverage sacks come into play

The Eagles have been able to work the middle of the field a lot, but this could be a game for Carson Wentz to attack the outside of the defense

This is a big test for Wentz

Philadelphia's defensive strategy usually involves stopping the run and forcing the offense to pass. Seattle has been able to pass without needing to run, so this is an interesting matchup.

Doug Baldwin vs. Patrick Robinson could be a good matchup

Jimmy Graham is still a weapon for Seattle

Afternoon QB With BLG: What if the Eagles never lose again?

BLG says the Eagles are so good that it’s boring, in a good way! Gets into the Eagles clinching the division on Thursday with Cowboys loss (Saints losing to the Rams is good, still need Vikings to lose at least one of the next two). Plus the Eagles have some sloppy things they need to clean up, what to make of the Ajayi stuff and more!

Next LVL Podcast: Run The Ball Against The Seahawks

Turron and Barrett Brooks take a look back at Chicago where the Eagles basically did anything they wanted on both sides of the ball. Plus Barrett thinks the Eagles can really exploit Seattle this week on the ground... if the RBs can hold on to the football. All that and more on this edition of the Next LVL Podcast.

Counterpoint Ep. 16: The Eagles Are Swaggin

Jack Fritz is back with an all new Counterpoint. He hates the Super Bowl chatter but also can't help but love the dance moves of this Eagles squad. Is the Doug Pederson confidence meter swaying a little bit after the post game speech this week? Plus what is the line saying as the Birds fly into Seattle and a whole lot more.
