Spent the day at work, got to run home to Mercer Island to walk the #farmersmarket with my lovely wife and son. We snapped a photo as parker wanted to be the one carrying the umbrella. So far so good!

So good to have both Cam and Rawls back!

Score is 7 Eagles 16 Seahawks

The Seahawks were staring at a long field after the Eagles kickoff unit dropped Tyler Lockettat his own eight-yard-line in the second quarter, but it didn’t stop them from getting a touchdown.

Facing a third-and-11 from the Eagles’ 35-yard-line, Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilsonscrambled out of the pocket and found tight end Jimmy Graham for enough yards to keep the drive alive. Graham would get more than that, though. He broke a tackle attempt by Jaylen Watkins and rambled into the end zone for Seattle’s second touchdown of the afternoon.

C.J. Prosise got the other on a big play in the first quarter by sprinting 72 yards for a touchdown and the Seahawks have put up 300 yards overall. They’ve picked up 114 of those on the ground with Thomas Rawls chipping in 32 yards on six carries in his first action since the second week of the season.

The biggest sequence in the half came in the second quarter when the Eagles had a 57-yard touchdown on a nicely designed screen to tight end Zach Ertz wiped out because wide receiver Nelson Agholor was lined up illegally on the other side of the line. The Eagles were forced to punt and Wilson found Doug Baldwin and Lockett for big gains that set up a field goal that made the score 16-7 shortly after it looked like the Eagles would take the lead.

Philly lost running back Ryan Mathews, who had 31 yards on seven carries, to a knee injury, leaving them down a weapon as they try to rally from down a couple of scores. Carson Wentz is 10-of-18 for 82 yards and a touchdown, but was intercepted just before halftime by Kam Chancellor while trying to get some points before time expired.
