The Seattle Seahawks rebounded nicely from a tough loss against Washington last week by defeating a talented, but wounded Philadelphia Eagles’ squad 31-14.
Seattle was solid in all three phases of the game, but this one belonged to Marshawn Lynch, who finished with a season-high 148 rushing yards on 22 carries and two touchdowns.
Lynch ran over, around and through Philadelphia defenders, helping Seattle improve to 5-7 on the season.
Seattle quarterback Tarvaris Jackson was solid, finishing an efficient 13 of 16 for 190 yards and a touchdown, and most importantly, no interceptions.
With Sidney Rice done for the season, second-year pro Golden Tate finally played up to his immense potential, finishing with four catches for 47 yards, including an 11-yard touchdown pass in the second half.
And Seattle got another gem of a performance from its defense, with linebacker David Hawthorne, safety Kam Chancellor and Brandon Browner corralling interceptions.
Browner had two on the evening.
Hawthorne ran his back 77 yards for a touchdown with 4:24 left in the game.
