Seahawks out-Eagle the Eagles, defeat fellow birds on the road, recapped on Twitter

This game was supposed to be exciting. A nail biter. It’s actually quite possible that this game was less close than the score would indicate. The Seahawks still probably haven’t played a perfect game this season, or even as perfect as one can expect from imperfect people. Instead, the Seahawks did to the Eagles what the Eagles have become successful at — they ran a ton of plays on offense, forced turnovers, and kept the opponent’s defense tired.
