First Half Notes: Seahawks vs Eagles

First half observations from the Seahawks' Week 13 matchup against Philadelphia.

SEATTLE, Wash. — After two quarters at CenturyLink Field, the Seattle Seahawks lead the Philadelphia Eagles 10-3. Here are notes from the first half of tonight's game:

  • The Seahawks' starting cornerbacks were rookie Shaquill Griffin and veteran Byron Maxwell. Griffin made his return to the lineup after missing last week's game in San Francisco due to a concussion. Justin Coleman was the starter at nickel.  
  • Mike Davis has seen the bulk of the work at running back for the Seahawks so far. Like Griffin, Davis made his return to action after suffering an injury against Atlanta and has rushed for 19 yards on seven carries as he looks to spark Seattle's run game. Davis' biggest play of the game came through the air, however, with a 23-yard reception that helped put the Seahawks near the red zone. Davis has two catches for 32 yards to lead all Seattle pass catchers. 
  • Jimmy Graham scored the first touchdown of the game with an 11-yard reception from quarterback Russell Wilson. The score was the ninth of the season for Graham, and fifth in the past four games. According to NFL research, Graham's touchdown was the first surrendered by the Eagles defense in 144 minutes and 35 seconds dating back to Week 9 when they faced the Denver Broncos.
  • A big tackle by Maxwell on the Eagles' third offensive possession forced Philadelphia to settle for a field goal and not a touchdown on their longest drive of the game. It was great stop by the Seahawks defense as the Eagles took up 7:51 on the clock and went 75 yards on 16 plays.
  • Safety Bradley McDougald leads Seattle's defense with seven tackles, including an impressive assist to stuff a third-and-2 play while Philadelphia was driving with under two minutes to play in the half.
  • Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz has thrown for just 45 yards on 9-of-13 passing. Wilson is 10-of-12 with 101 yards and the touchdown to Graham.
