The Seahawks travel to Jacksonville next Sunday for a 1:25 p.m. game against the Jaguars (8-4).

He showed off his MVP ability with a pair of attractive plays early in the fourth quarter to make things interesting, but the Eagles were ultimately overpowered by a Seattle Seahawks team that showed a level of intensity Philadelphia could not match.

There was a defensive holding call on Patrick Robinson on third-and-short that extended a Seahawks drive in the third quarter. He had five receptions for 84 yards to pace the Seahawks receiving corps, and got back to his productive self as the Seahawks get ready for a push to the postseason.

Russell Wilson was, once again, a magician - and this week, he didn't wait until the second half to prove it.

The win kept the Seahawks (8-4) within striking distance of the Los Angeles Rams (9-3) in the NFC West, with a critical division game against the Rams in Seattle two weeks away.

He burst up the middle on a keeper from the 6-yard line, but the ball popped loose just before he hit the ground at the 1-yard line. Philadelphia drove into Seattle territory six times in the first three quarters but managed just three points before finally scoring their lone touchdown early in the fourth quarter to cut Seattle's lead to 17-10. It trickled out of the back for a touchback. It was Graham's ninth of the season, and all of them have come in the past eight games. They also fell behind Kansas City by 14 during a 27-20 loss on September 17. The Eagles offense was off kilter.

According to Jon Morosi of the MLB Network, the Miami Marlins have worked a deal out with both teams. Louis Cardinals or San Francisco Giants , his approval is the only thing that needs to happen.

Playing in a hostile road environment after a cross-country trip, the Birds didn't have a pass play of more than 10 yards in the first half.

There were plenty of others, including a play late in the first quarter, when he bought enough time with his legs to allow Davis to leak out of the backfield and lose Mychal Kendricks in coverage, setting up a 23-yard catch-and-run that set the Seahawks up with a first down on the Eagles' 38-yard-line. They also fell behind Washington 3-0 on October 23 before rallying for a 34-24 victory. There were some penalties that were questionable, and the Eagles lost one challenge and maybe, possibly could have challenged a Wilson lateral to Davis that gained a first down, but the 60-minute performance boiled down into bullet points is that the Eagles simply made too many mistakes.

Seattle grabbed a 3-0 lead on its opening possession.

The Seahawks got on the board early when kicker Blair Walsh connected on his 46-yard field goal attempt on Seattle's first drive. Wilson was 20 of 31 for 227 and threw touchdowns of 11 yards to Jimmy Graham, 1-yard to Tyler Lockett and the TD to McKissic after the Eagles had trimmed the lead to seven.

Wentz also missed a wide-open Agholor early in the first that either would have been a major pickup or touchdown.

Referee Tony Corrente and his crew hit the Eagles with 44 yards' worth of penalties in the first quarter.
