The Seattle Seahawks dominated Thursday night’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles with a final score of 31-14.
Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch was a force to be reckoned with. The Eagles defense couldn’t contain him. He carried the ball 22 times for 148 yards and scored two touchdowns, one of which was on the Seahawks’ first drive.
Seattle’s defense also held the Eagles to only two of eight on third down conversions. Quarterback Tavaris Jackson completed 13 of 16 passes for 190 yards. He had one touchdown and no turnovers.
Eagles quarterback Vince Young has played well over the past few weeks while filling in for Michael Vick who is recovering from broken ribs. However he struggled in this matchup against the Seahawks throwing four interceptions, one of which was on the Eagles’ first drive.
Additionally, Young completed 17 of 29 passes for 208 yards and had one touchdown.
One bright spot for the Eagles was running back LeSean McCoy, who had 17 carries for 84 yards and two touchdowns. That’s three more carries than he had last week against the Patriots.
The last time Vince Young played against Pete Carroll, was five years ago at the Rose Bowl when Young orchestrated a Texas sized comeback against USC to win the national championship. Thursday’s game had very different results for Young.
While the Eagles came within 10 points in the fourth quarter, turnovers erased any chance they had of winning the game.
Next week the Seahawks take on division rivals the St. Louis Rams.
