Blitzalytics Analysis


Line Seattle (-1.5) Over/Under 45.5 Against the Spread - Seattle (8-8) Philadelphia (6-10)


These two teams met in week 13 in Philadelphia with the visiting Seahawks prevailing 17-9. Philadelphia has had an interesting 2019. They lost to also-rans Miami, Detroit, and Atlanta but then beat Green Bay, Chicago, and Dallas twice to make the playoffs. Seattle has had a great season but limped into the playoffs losing three of the last four games. Seattle has had a myriad of injuries including their top two running backs, who are out for the year.


The Degenerate Menace Says: A lot has been made of Philly’s run to the playoffs winning their last four games. However, I don’t really get a warm feeling inside win those four wins were all against the dismal NFC East. I am a little apprehensive about Seattle’s issues at running back. However, I think this year they are the more battle-tested group and I like them to defeat the Eagles again.


Predicted Score: Seattle 28 - Philadelphia 25
