MNF Open Thread: Seahawks-Eagles

Battle of the Birds tonight on Monday Night Football.

Tonight’s matchup on Monday Night Football is between the 7-4 Seahawks and the 3-6-1 Eagles.

One team employs an MVP candidate at quarterback while the other is wondering if they made the right choice drafting him almost four years ago.

The Eagles are also struggling with a plethora of injuries along the offensive line. It’s so bad that left tackle Jason Peters is moving to right guard for this game even though he’s got a broken bone in his foot. His mobility is obviously going to be hindered and he believes moving to guard is in his best interest as he attempts to play through the injury.

The Seahawks have two incredibly dynamic receivers with Tyler Lockett and D.K. Metcalf. The former is a sure-handed speedster while the latter is a rocked-up behemoth who can run like the wind. When Seattle takes the field, there’s always a good chance for fireworks. Can the Eagles amass anything offensively in an attempt to keep up with the explosive ‘Hawks? I wouldn’t get my hopes up if I was an Eagles fan.

Enjoy the night and feel free to discuss the game below!
