The Line: Seattle Seahawks -4.5 -- Over/Under: 45.5
Coming up in Week 11 NFL action, we’ve got a great NFC matchup on our hands as the Philadelphia Eagles travel to CenturyLink Field to visit the Seattle Seahawks.
The Eagles come into this game with a 5-4 record and have lost two of their last three, but Philly posted a strong victory over the Falcons 24-15 this past weekend. In that game, Philadelphia QB Carson Wentz posted 231 yards passing, while Ryan Mathews did the heavy lifting on the ground with 19 carries for 109 yards and two scores.
So far this year, Wentz holds 2121 yards with nine scores and five picks, while Mathews is the Eagles’ top rusher on 95 attempts for 396 yards and seven touchdowns. Jordan Matthews is Philadelphia’s big receiver on 48 catches for 580 yards and three touchdowns.
Over on the Seattle side, they’re entering play here with a pretty good 6-2-1 record, and are coming off an impressive victory over the Patriots on Sunday night 31-24. On the evening, Seattle QB Russell Wilson went for 348 yards and three touchdowns, while RB C.J. Prosise had 17 carries for 66 yards to lead in the rush. Prosise also led in receiving for Seattle with seven catches for 87 yards.
On the season thus far, Wilson holds 2442 yards with 10 touchdowns and two picks for Seattle, and Christine Michael is the team’s leading rusher on 117 attempts for 469 yards and six scores. Doug Baldwin is the high receiver for the Seahawks with 50 catches for 629 yards and five touchdowns.
The Eagles are 1-4 ATS in their last five games in November, and 0-4 ATS in their last four road games. The over is also 9-0 in Philadelphia’s last nine road games, and 11-2 in the Eagles’ last 13 against the NFC.
As for Seattle, they’re 4-0 ATS in their last four games in November, and 5-2 ATS in their last seven games overall. The Seahawks are also 2-5 ATS in their last seven games following an ATS win, and 2-5 ATS in their last seven versus the NFC.
Both these teams have had their struggles this year, and it’s hard telling which version of either squad we’ll be getting Sunday. That said, Seattle’s offense has been humming along with 31 points in both their last two outings and they seem to be catching a rhythm. The Seahawks are always better at home, of course, so I’ll take Seattle to cover here.
