Seahawks vs. Eagles Final Score: Seattle Dominates Defensively In 31-14 Victory

The Seattle Seahawks came up with a big victory on Thursday night as they knocked off the struggling Philadelphia Eagles by a score of 31-14.

Marshawn Lynch was the hero on Thursday night and led the way with 148 rushing yards and two touchdowns. After weeks of inconsistent play, Tarvaris Jackson stepped up as well, completing 13 of his 16 passes for 190 yards and a touchdown. Golden Tate hauled in four passes and was the recipient of the touchdown pass in the corner of the end zone.

The Eagles were clearly discombobulated without Michael Vick and Vince Young had an atrocious game. The backup QB threw four interceptions and only had 208 passing yards despite throwing the ball 29 times. LeSean McCoy did his part offensively -- two touchdowns and 133 yards of total offense -- but he was a one-man show against a tough Seattle defense.

The play that ended the game was a 77-yard interception return from David Hawthorne that went for a touchdown late in the fourth quarter. Simply put, Seattle dominated every aspect of the game.

Seahawks vs. Eagles Score: Seahawks Dominate Third Quarter, Lead 24-14

The Seahawks have struggled to play consistently throughout the year, but they are currently playing what may be their best game of the season. With the fourth quarter underway, they lead the Eagles by a score of 24-14.

The Seahawks used a big interception return to get deep into scoring position and capped off a six play, 30 yard touchdown drive with a pretty touchdown pass to Golden Tate in the corner of the end zone. After a slow start, Tarvaris Jackson is having a big game with 154 passing yards and a touchdown. He has completed 10 of 13 passes, has no turnovers and features a QB rating of 141.2.

Vince Young continues to struggle and threw his second interception of the game with the Eagles deep in Seattle territory, but LeSean McCoy has kept Philly in the game with a huge performance. The star running back has scored twice is approaching 100 yards of total offense.

13 minutes remain in the game and the Seahawks have the ball. Killing the clock on this drive is imperative if they hope to win.

Seahawks vs. Eagles Score: Marshawn Lynch, LeSean McCoy Playing Well As Seattle Leads

The Seattle Seahawks used two big touchdown runs from Marshawn Lynch and a 49-yard field goal in the final minutes of the first half to give themselves a 17-7 lead over the Philadelphia Eagles.

Lynch is well on his way to a stellar performance, racking up 90 rushing yards on just 11 carries. The Eagles have had no answer for the shifty running back, although he was battling stomach pains towards the end of the half. Tarvaris Jackson has played surprisingly well, completing nine of his twelve passes for 143 yards. Most notably, Seattle did not have a turnover in the first 30 minutes of play.

The Eagles are struggling without Michael Vick and it was been a struggle with Vince Young at the helm. Young completed just five passes in the half for 86 yards and threw an interception while the team was driving. LeSean McCoy has been the only consistent player offensively for Philadelphia, rushing for 36 yards and a touchdown. DeSean Jackson continues to be a non-factor and is completely out of sync with the backup quarterback.

The second half is about to be underway and the Seahawks will kickoff. For more on the game, head on over to Field Gulls.

Seahawks vs. Eagles Score: Marshawn Lynch Dominating Early On Thursday Night Football

Both the Seattle Seahawks and Philadelphia Eagles are desperate for a win on Thursday Night Football, and just a few minutes into the second quarter, Marshawn Lynch has been unstoppable. After two impressive touchdown rushes from Lynch, the Seahawks lead 14-7. Here is a video of Lynch's second touchdown run.


Other than Lynch, Tarvaris Jackson has played surprisingly well, completing three of his first five passes for 66 yards. The Seattle defense also played very well in the first quarter, holding the Eagles, who are playing without Michael Vick, to just 49 yards of total offense.

Philadelphia was finally able to get something going early in the second quarter and cut the deficit to 14-7 with a deep pass Riley Cooper and one-yard touchdown run from LeSean McCoy. Without Vick at the helm, the Eagles will have to play mistake-free football if they hope to pick up a road victory.
