With the Philadelphia Eagles coming into town this past week, Seahawks fans heard over and over how their opposition put up more points in the first quarter than any other team. Not only that, but their opponents had yet to score a first quarter touchdown. Seattle put an end to that streak and got out to a 10-0 lead in the first quarter, which turned the tables on the Eagles who had to try and come back from a 17-3 deficit by the 3rd quarter.
Timely penalties by the Eagles defense helped keep the Seahawks on the field along with a lateral pass that has stirred up some controversy (because the Seahawks can't win in prime time without it). And Seattle's defense once again forced a fumble that went out the back of the end zone to help keep points off the board. It was a tremendous defensive performance and a reminder to anyone that might consider doubting the capabilities of a team down three Pro Bowl starters.
Next up, the Seahawks head down to Jacksonville as the guys talk about some things to consider when Russell Wilson goes up against the NFL's top scoring defense and a league leading passing defense. The formula for taking down the Jaguars isn't much different than the one they've used in the past in wins against the Eagles and Rams.
After the break, Brandan touches a nerve with Adam when asking about his favorite Christmas carols after spending the weekend at the mall. They talk about who needs to do better after watching some dirty plays throughout the NFL this weekend. Finally, better at life nods go to an eccentric billionaire who is launching a vehicle into space and we take a trip to Prisco's World as someone unexpectedly calls for our quarterback to be considered in the MVP discussion.
