Seahawks Soar Past Eagles 26-15

The Seahawks improved to 7-2-1 on Sunday after defeating the Eagles 26-15 in Week 11.

SEATTLE —The Seattle Seahawks defeated the Philadelphia Eagles 26-15 in front of a record crowd of 69,190 at CenturyLink Field to register their seventh victory of the 2016 season.

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson went 18 of 31 through the air and passed for 272 yards, with one passing touchdown and one receiving. Wilson, who caught a 15-yard touchdown pass from wide receiver Doug Baldwin, is the first quarterback in team history to do so.

Baldwin himself caught four passes for 104 yards, and moved past Joey Galloway into fifth place on the Seahawks' all-time receiving list.

On the ground, Seattle put together its best rushing performance of the season, running for a season-high 152 yards against Philadelphia's aggressive defense.

Rookie running back C.J. Prosise totaled 76 of those yards, with 72 coming on an explosive touchdown run in the first quarter — the Seahawks' longest run from scrimmage at CenturyLink Field. Prosise only carried the ball four times, however, after being forced to leave the game because of a shoulder injury.


In his first game back, Thomas Rawls ran for 57 yards on 14 attempts and caught three passes for 31 yards.

The Seahawks gained 439 offensive yards Sunday, a season-high, while the Eagles managed 308.

Additionally, the Seahawks defense did its part to match the output from the offense, producing one of the most balanced performances of the season. Eagles rookie quarterback Carson Wentz passed for just 218 yards and was picked off twice, with Kam Chancellor and Richard Sherman creating the turnovers. Philadelphia only rushed for 113 yards.

Unbeaten at home and 7-2-1 on the season, the Seahawks aim to carry Sunday's performance on the road next weekend when they visit the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
