The Seahawks begin November with three of the next four games at home in Seattle. First up are the Philadelphia Eagles who travel to Seattle for the first time since 2002. Kickoff is slated for 1:15 p.m. (PT) and the game will be televised on FOX (channel 13 in Seattle) and broadcast on 97.3 FM in Seattle.

This week's matchup will mark the first of three NFC East opponents in Seattle's next five games. In its last nine meetings against NFC East opponents, Seattle is 8-1, including 3-0 in the postseason.

Philadelphia leads the all-time series by a 6-5 advantage, but Seattle has won two in a row and four of the last six. In last season's game on December 2 in Philadelphia, Lofa Tatupu stole the show, literally, with three interceptions, two of which were turned in to 14 Seahawks points and the third sealed the game deep in Seattle territory with :23 remaining in the game. Seattle won the game, 28-24.

Seattle also won on December 5, 2005, on Monday Night Football by the score of 42-0, led by Seattles three defensive touchdowns including two by Andre Dyson in his 11 defensive plays on the night (ankle). Seattle has outscored Philadelphia 108-24 in its last three trips to the City of Brotherly Love. Philadelphia won the most recent trips to Seattle in 2001 and 2002.

Last weeks 34-13 win at San Francisco gave Mike Holmgren sole possession of 10th place on the NFLs all-time wins list. His record currently stands at 172-115. He is 5-5 all-time vs. Philadelphia and 2-2 while with Seattle.
