We'll see if anyone can have a fully correct prediction this week as the Eagles try to advance to the Divisional Round of the postseason. Here's what our writers are boldly predicting for this weekend:
Andrew: With swirling winds predicted throughout the whole game, I think the game will come down to kicking and just how accurate the kickers will be with their extra points and field goal attempts. I say Jake Elliott will get the better of Jason Myers, and Elliott will kick a game-winning 40+ yard field goal with little-to-no time remaining.
Chalie: Carson Wentz is tired of hearing about Nick Foles and that he isn’t a big game QB. He torches the Seahawks defense with his practice squad buddies 45-17
Dylan: The Eagles Deffense dominates keeping Russell Wilson under 230 passing yards with only two passing touchdowns.
Travis: If active, new Eagles running back Elijah Holyfield will have two rushing touchdowns.
Alexis: Eagles are no longer dogs -- they are wolves. They take down the Seahawks against all odds against them 34-22.
Zach: Doug Pederson says that The Philly Special is retired, but this is the worst defense that Pete Carroll has had since he has been in Seattle. My point is that this is a game where I could see the Eagles struggling on offense in the red zone, especially the running game. Greg Ward was a college quarterback, and if the Eagles are struggling in the red zone, then Doug Pederson will bring back The Philly Special. Now, if the Birds are having trouble elsewhere, then expect a lot of Doug Pederson's other tricks because this is a playoff game. Zach Ertz has been cleared to play, so I expect him to be the difference maker for the Birds and expect a touchdown from #86.
Chauncey: The most times Russell Wilson has been sacked in one game this season is six. That number was set by the Eagles in week 12. The Eagles defense will break that record with seven sacks on Sunday.
