Seattle Seahawks 11-5 finished 2nd in the NFC West. Russell Wilson finished the regular season with 4,110 passing yards. However, their best offense is when it comes to rushing yards per game with 137.5 which is the 4th best in the league. Chris Carson is their leader with 1,230 rushing yards. Seahawks’ biggest weakness is their defense because they allowed 24.9 points per match during the regular season which is worst than 21 teams. In their latest 4 games, they won only one against Carolina Panthers 30-24. During that period they lost from L.A. Rams 12-28, Arizona Cardinals 27-13 at home and in their last game from San Francisco 49ers 26-21.
Philadelphia Eagles 9-7 finished 1st in the NFC East. In the second place in NFC East finished Dallas Cowboys with 8-8 records. In all rankings when it comes to their offense Eagles are not a top 10 in the league. Almost the same is with their defense except for rushing yards per game allowed with 90.1 which is the 3rd best in the NFL. Carson Wentz finished with 4,039 passing yards and the best receiver in the team is Zach Ertz with 916. Philadelphia won their latest 4 matches in the league and the most important of all of them was the victory against Dallas Cowboys at home 9-17. That allows them to win the NFC East and to play in the playoffs.
Eagles will have the home advantage but I don’t trust them. They beat weak teams to make it to the postseason and the team was not impressive during the regular season. If Seattle Seahawks played decent in defense I think that they will win the upcoming clash. Seahawks already beat them during the regular season in Philadelphia 9-17 and they got 5 wins in a row against this opponent so that’s why I pick them for the victory.
