This is arguably the most complete game that the Seahawks have played this year. From the opening drive, the game seemed to go in favor of the Seahawks. The offense was led by quarterback Russell Wilson who once again turned into a wizard. He was scrambling his way out of would-be sacks and finding receivers like tight end Jimmy Graham for the 9th time in 8 games.
All week, I was anxious about this game. I knew it would be tough to play against Seattle in Seattle. I just figured it would be more competitive, or at the very least a fun game to watch. As frustrating as it was, though, I’m okay with this loss. Eagles needed to face a playoff caliber team; a team who was desperate for a win, in order to get experience in that type of environment.
After enjoying some much needed time off and a long overdue family gathering, I watched the Eagles/Bears game and had the biggest smile on my face. It was a great weekend personally, and I wasn’t too concerned about the outcome of the game. But, if I’m being honest, it feels pretty good having this kind of confidence in your team.
The Philadelphia Eagles played a sloppy game with three total fumbles for the day and it was frustrating to watch because these are the kinds of mistakes we can’t afford to make when it counts the most. Sunday’s game wasn’t the most important game of the season, not even close. However, turnovers of any kind need to be immediately addressed. Fortunately, Chicago didn’t gain any points from any of those fumbles but the same thing can’t be said for a team such as Seattle or maybe even the Rams, which are the Eagles’ next two road games.

Every year around this time, I like to reflect on the past year. I think about what I’ve gained, what I’ve lost and most importantly, what I’ve learned.
The main things are always the same: I still have my kids, they have their health, are happy and I will forever be grateful that I get to be their mom. I have my partner in crime and my best friend in my husband. He’s the best father for my kids that I could ever ask for.
My circle of friends remains small but these are people who I trust around my children. I can confide my deepest secrets with them and who all know me and love me even if we go days without talking. I am very fortunate to still have my family near me and am able to spend birthdays and holidays with them.
For some reason, I found this article hard to write. I couldn’t write it after Sunday night’s game against the Cowboys because I was on an emotional high and I refused to think logically. I skipped on my usual weekly game recap. I also wanted to write an article about how, based on Eagles’ history, going 9-1 equals a trip to the Super Bowl. Of course, that’s difficult to prove so I couldn’t write about that either.
Then, I thought about writing an article describing how proud I am of my team because, you know, I haven’t talked about that enough. Buutt…I wasn’t able to find the right words to fully express my feelings so I nixed that idea.
The New Orleans Saints will face the Washington Redskins this Sunday. It can be argued as their first matchup against a good quarterback who is not suffering with an injury since Tom Brady. They faced Cam Newton and Jameis Winston both of whom were working through shoulder problems, and a banged up Matthew Stafford.
This could be their toughest test during their current winning streak. The Washington Redskins will be without running back Robert Kelley, defensive back DeAngelo Hall, and possibly wide receiver Ryan Grant.
Sunday’s game against the Denver Broncos was a bittersweet victory. Wait…that’s a lie. It was a pretty SWEET VICTORY! I really tried to not enjoy it as much as I did, but I couldn’t help myself. I watched every single minute of it. Let’s be honest, though, it was over by halftime.
The Denver Broncos are my boyfriend’s team and he’s fully aware that the Broncos aren’t playing to their full potential. All week leading up to this rivalry game, all I heard from him was “Eagles haven’t seen a real defense” (okay, guy),“Carson Wentz will finally see a real defense” (eye roll), and my favorite “Your running backs aren’t going to get more than four yards on my defense” (eye roll plus smirk).
The Washington Redskins pulled off a miracle in Seattle last night defeating the Seattle Seahawks 17-14. With an offensive line that has been completely decimated by injuries, it was left to the defense to “hold the line”. And hold the line they did!
After setting a franchise record last week, everyone thought that Russell Wilson would come out swinging and the Seahawks would blow the Redskins out of the water. But between all the offensive penalties the Seahawks racked up and an impressive showing from the Redskins defense, the Seahawks once again lost to the Redskins at home.
The Redskins defense was in Wilson’s face for most of the night, bringing pressure and forcing him out of the pocket time and time again. They knew going into the game that they would have to keep Wilson contained. They managed to do this holding him to only 297 passing yards but they did allow him 77 rushing yards.
The Washington Redskins came to Seattle with a slight limp. They were facing the fierce Seahawks defense with a very injured offensive line. The stat line showed this, however, the scoreline did not. Seattle rarely loses in November. Today that wasn’t the case.
The game didn’t start well for Seattle and never got better. In fact, the only points the Seahawks had in the first half came from the defense. They are now at 21 games without scoring on 1st possession. Slow starts have become commonplace for the Seahawks, but they often pick it up come the second half of the season. This game was not an example of that.
