[4:25 PM] Eagles @ Seahawks

Who will WIN this matchup?

Philadelphia Eagles (5-4)

@ Seattle Seahawks (6-2)


The line for this game is Seattle by 6.5 points.

The Philadelphia Eagles and Seattle Seahawks look to ride the momentum of impressive statement victories last week into Sunday’s tilt at CenturyLink Field. Philadelphia posted just its second win in six outings with a 24-15 victory over Atlanta on Sunday while Seattle benefited from a goal-line stand to emerge victorious for the second straight week and improve to 5-1-1 in its last seven with a 31-24 triumph over New England.

The Philadelphia backfield is a confusing one to label, yet both veteran Darren Sproles and Ryan Mathews are making their mark in distinctly different ways. Sproles remains a threat in the passing game with eight receptions last week and Mathews rushed for a season-high 109 yards and scored twice to increase his touchdown total to four in his last three contests. Jordan Matthews, who is nursing back spasms, has been the lone consistent Eagles wideout with 23 catches for 216 yards in his last three games.

With Thomas Rawls (fibula) expected to return on Sunday and rookie C.J. Prosise turning heads by recording a career-high 153 yards from scrimmage (66 rushing, 87 receiving) versus the Patriots, Seattle opted to end Christine Michael’s second stint with the club by waiving him this week. Prosise’s dominating performance notwithstanding, the Seahawks are expected to ease back Rawls into the system despite the team being on pace for a franchise low for yards in a 16-game season.

Veteran DE Cliff Avril has a team-best 9.0 sacks for the Seahawks, who are tied for second in the NFL with 29.

Eagles coach Doug Pederson grew up in Ferndale, Wash. — approximately 100 miles north of Seattle – and used to attend Seahawks games at The Kingdome.

Seattle LB Bobby Wagner’s 93 tackles are one shy of Cleveland’s Christian Kirksey for the NFL lead.
