A Seahawks win in week 12 could potentially put them in first place in the NFC West.
After playing in the primetime Thursday night game against the Arizona Cardinals last week in which they won by a touchdown (28-21), the Seattle Seahawks get a second consecutive primetime game although this time, it will be on Monday night on the road in Philadelphia as they take on the Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field.
In regards to the standings, the Seahawks currently occupy second place in their own division. After this week’s slate of games, a bunch of different scenarios could occur in the NFC West. If the Seahawks win, they could get the first seed but they would also need the Los Angeles Rams to lose their game against the San Francisco 49ers.
If the Seahawks and Rams lose and the Cardinals beat the New England Patriots, they would all be 7-4 which would make the division race extremely tight for the rest of the season going forward. (Seattle does have the easiest remaining schedule of the three teams but a loss to the Eagles means anything could happen for the Seahawks.)
Oddly enough, coming into week 12, the Eagles, who are just 3-6-1, led the NFC East (the Washington Football Team defeated the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday so technically have the current lead in the division). If the Eagles were in the NFC West, they would be in last place by half a game behind the 49ers.
Anyway, without further ado, here’s who to keep an eye out for in the Seahawks versus Eagles matchup on Monday night.
