McNabb and the Eagles Run Over the Hawks 26-7

Things could not have started better for the Seahawks Sunday at home vs the Eagles. A 90-yard TD pass from Seneca Wallace to Koren Robinson got the Hawks off and running just 1:49 into the game, but in the end, it was all the offense they would show, as they fell at home to Philly 26-7 to fall to 2-6.

The problems for Seattle were once again evident on this Sunday afternoon at home. They were not able to stop a Philly offense that put up 419 yards and scored a bunch, and their offense was in check again, gaining just 233 yards and they put up just 10 first downs. Plus they had issues on third down, going just 4-for-15.

Wallace was 13-for-29 for 169 yards with the one score, but otherwise was not effective in getting the Seahawks moving much at all. They held the ball for just 22:45, and may have wanted to run more, as Maurice Morris and Julius Jones combined for 84 yards on 18 carries, putting up 4.6 yards per carry, but they didn’t get the ball much with the team losing.

Donovan McNabb was 28-for-43 for 349 yards with two TD’s and an interception, and his play led the Eagles to a 14-7 lead at the half with TD throws to Reggie Brown and Todd Herremans. David Akers added four second half field goals, hitting kicks from 39, 24, 42 and 39 yards to seal the win.

The Hawks were stopped pretty much cold in the second half by the solid Eagles D, as they had just 60 yards on 26 plays, with five punts, a fumble and the last drive ending the game down by 19.

Next week the Hawks travel to Miami to play the surprising Dolphins, who are 4-4 after their win Sunday over the Broncos in Denver.
