Monday Round-Up: Media React To Seattle Seahawks 26-15 Win Over Philadelphia Eagles

A round-up of media reaction following the Seahawks' 26-15 win over the Eagles.

Good afternoon, 12s.

Here's a look at what's "out there" about the Seattle Seahawks following the team's 26-15 Week 11 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles: 

What They're Saying: Seahawks 26, Eagles 15

Digital media reporter John Boyle shared his rapid reaction to the game, with thoughts on special teams, injuries and more. 

Seahawks rookie running back C.J. Prosise is going to be out “for a while,” according to head coach Pete Carroll. 

Richard Sherman said Doug Baldwin's touchdown throw to Russell Wilson is something similar to what you might see in Friday Night Lights.

Behind Prosise and Thomas Rawls, the Seahawks had their best outing of the season running the football.

Bobby Wagner is making a strong case to win MVP of the Seahawks defense.

Russell Wilson is playing at an MVP-level, writes Danny O'Neil of 710 ESPN Seattle. 

During the final eight games of the 2015 regular season, when the Seahawks went to a more wide-open scheme and made Wilson the point guard of their pace-and-space attack, the QB passed for 2,146 yards with 25 touchdowns and two interceptions. That prompted many to predict that he was in line for an MVP-type season this fall. After a slow start to the season (mostly because of injury and protection issues), Wilson has spent the past three games reminding everyone why that buzz existed, culminating in Sunday's 26–15 dismantling of the Eagles that moved Seattle's record to 7–2–1.

Baldwin is Peter King's Offensive Player of the Week:

Doug Baldwin, wide receiver/quarterback, Seattle. Key rule point here: A quarterback under center is not an eligible receiver; a quarterback in the shotgun is eligible. So when Baldwin came from the left flank around the backside of Wilson on Sunday against Philadelphia, Wilson was able to leak out for a pass … and he did, and he wasn't covered at first, and he was open long enough for Baldwin to loft a perfect 15-yard touchdown pass to Wilson at the left pylon. Oh, and Baldwin added four catches for 104 yards. Seattle 26, Philadelphia 15. Month after month, game after game, Baldwin doesn't get the A.J. Green/Antonio Brown/Jordy Nelson hype, but Seattle is 7-2-1, and only Russell Wilson is more important to that offense.

With Prosise sidelined due to injury, the Seahawks will rely on Rawls to pick up the slack running the ball, writes ESPN's Sheil Kapadia. 

ESPN's Kevin Seifert says the Seahawks and Dallas Cowboys are pulling away in the NFC.'s Jeffri Chadiha says the Seahawks are scarier than the Cowboys, however.  

The Seahawks received an A in CBSSports’ Week 11 grades. 

And lastly, Sam Monson of Pro Football Focus offers five reasons the NFC should fear Seattle.
