The NFC leading Philadelphia Eagles will be going for their 10th win in a row when they take on the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday Night Football. The game will be played at CenturyLink Stadium and is scheduled to begin at 8:30 PM. ET.
Can Carson Wentz keep it up? The Eagles have been the biggest surprise in the league this year and at 10-1, have the best record in the NFL.
The Key to the Eagles’ success is second year quarterback Carson Wentz, who leads the league with 28 touchdowns.
Wentz and the high-flying Eagles have the best offense in the league, averaging 31.9 points per game. Their defense has also been very solid this year and opponents are averaging 17.4 points against them, which is the third best in the league.
The Eagles should be able to move the ball against Seattle’s depleted secondary, but the Seahawks aren’t going to be an easy team to defeat because they are still fighting for the NFC West title.
Is this a must win game for the Seahawks in order to make the playoffs and a chance at going to Superbowl 2018? The Seahawks have been dealing with injuries all season, but have still managed to stay in the thick of the NFC playoff race.
Quarterback Russell Wilson hasn’t been mentioned among the MVP candidates, but he has been one of the best in the league this year, and leads the Seahawks in both passing and rushing this year.
The Seahawks have been very difficult to beat at home in recent years, but they have lost two straight home games and they will be trying to avoid losing three straight.
Despite their injuries on defense, the Seahawks still have one of the best defensive units in the NFL, and are holding opponents to 19.3 points per game, which is 9th in the league.
Offensively, the Seahawks are averaging 24.2 points, which is 10th in the NFL.
Who should you bet on for NFL Week 13? The Eagles are favored to win this game by 6 points. The over/under on total points scored is 42 points. The Eagles are flying high right now, but the Seahawks know they are still within reach of the Rams so I expect them to take this game. Take Seattle +6.
