Marshawn Lynch ran for 145 yards and two touchdowns, one of which involved running through a mass of bodies and emerging on the other end unscathed, as the Seattle Seahawks put away the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday Night Football, 31-14. While the Seahawks offense was able to move the ball at will on the ground, and generally keep Philadelphia off-balance, the Eagles struggled through the air. Vince Young threw four interceptions on the night, including a game-sealing pick-six.
Young finished with 204 yards and a touchdown through the air, but his four interceptions were back-breaking. His one touchdown came on a shovel pass to LeSean McCoy, with the shifty running back plunging into the end zone from inside the five. In fact, McCoy provided all the offense for the Eagles, rushing for 84 yards and a touchdown to go with his receiving score.
Tarvaris Jackson didn't have to throw much, but still completed 13-of-16 passes for 190 yards and a touchdown. Golden Tate was on the receiving end of Jackson's touchdown with an excellent grab in the back of the end zone.
The final score in Seattle: Seahawks 31, Eagles 14.
