Good morning, 12s. Here's a look at what's happening today – Tuesday, Dec. 1 – for your Seattle Seahawks.
What's Being Said: Seahawks 23, Eagles 17
The Seahawks traveled all the way across the country and won a critical Monday night game in Philadelphia against the Eagles, 23-17. The defense had another resurgent performance, totaling six sacks and 12 quarterback hits. On offense, it was DK Metcalf leading the way with 10 receptions for a career-high 177 yards. With the win, the Seahawks are now in sole possession of first place in the NFC West — one game ahead of the Rams and two ahead of the Cardinals.

Russell Wilson, Safeway Partner On 'Let Russ Cook' Aprons
The "Let Russ Cook" social media phenomenon has officially taken new heights.
Russell Wilson and Safeway are partnering to sell "Let Russ Cook" aprons, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to the United Way King County delivery of food boxes and household supplies to vulnerable populations as part of the "Last-Mile" home delivery program that was launched in August. The program was launched with funding from Wilson's "Why Not You Foundation" and Safeway's "Nourishing Neighbors" program.
"Let Russ Cook" aprons will be on sale at select Safeway and Albertsons locations across Washington. They can also be purchased online here.
Pro Football Hall of Famer Randy Moss and the NFL Countdown crew on ESPN had some fun with the aprons prior to the Seahawks win, too.
Social Post Of The Day
DK Metcalf's monster performance Monday came after he spoke with Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz prior to the game. Schwartz meant to compliment Metcalf, but DK took it as a personal slight and used the perfect Michael Jordan meme to express his feelings.
