Eagles QB Carson Wentz Posts Heartfelt Message After Loss

Eagles QB Carson Wentz Posts Heartfelt Message After Loss

Before engaging in the wailing, lamentations and recriminations about the frequency of homely play Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field, let's have a quick National Football League tournament overview.

"The last five weeks, he really put the team on his back and said, 'Hey, we're going to get to the postseason, and I'm going to take us there, '" Ertz said. "You talk about surviving".

While more than a few Seahawks and Eagles fans were hoping their teams' season would be extended at least another week, with the banged-up Eagles getting the loss, Seattle wasn't the team most Packers fans were hoping for. The Eagles quarterback hugged his teammates as tears streamed from his eyes after the game.

Given that Lynch is just two games into his return after being off the field for more than a year, it's unsurprising Seattle has brought him along slowly.

Lynch finished the day with just six carries for seven yards and the touchdown.

DK Metcalf helped close the game out, with another stretched out catch on 3rd and 10 for 36 yards. "The night", Carroll said, "was stolen by DK". But Wentz led them on a four-game winning streak to end the season, beating the Cowboys in Week 16 to take control of their own destiny in Week 17.

Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz left Sunday's Wild-Card Round matchup against the Seattle Seahawks during the first quarter at Lincoln Financial Field. Referee Shawn Smith told a pool reporter, "We saw incidental helmet contact and in our judgment, we didn't rule that to be a foul".

That said, I'm not enamored with this Seattle team. But here's the thing - I don't think Clowney was intentionally trying to hurt Wentz.

Metcalf's 160 yards set a new record for the most receiving yards by a rookie receiver in his first playoff game. The combination of Lynch and Wilson not only brings awful memories of the epic collapse of Green Bay in the championship game.

While the offensive line was awful in the run game, it was impressive in protecting Russell Wilson. Seattle kept its offense moving by converting 8 of 15 third-down situations, while limiting the Eagles to just 3 of 11 conversions.

McCown, 40, joined the Eagles during the preseason after injuries at the position.

By the end of the half, Wilson was 12/21 for 181 yards and no touchdowns.

The 6-3 Metcalf did what he does best - get hands higher than everyone else.

Earlier Sunday, the Vikings upset the Saints 26-20 in OT after closing as 7.5-point road underdogs and plus-325 on the money line (game also stayed Under the betting total of 49.5). "Ultimately, our defense locked it down when we need to". And in Philly they'll be pairing that empathy with outrage over the way it all went down.
