WHAT WE'RE WATCHING

Quick start: The Eagles have scored 72 points on their first and second possessions in their last eight games, including four touchdowns in four possessions the last 2 weeks. They've outscored their opponents in the first quarter the last eight games, 85-31.

Turnover-free: The Eagles have managed to win nine of 12 games despite a league-high 28 turnovers. They've had just one turnover-free game this season (against Carolina). They definitely could use another one Sunday.

Running wild: LeSean McCoy and the Eagles' ground game finally is hitting its stride. The Eagles are averaging 5.1 yards per carry the last two games and McCoy has three 100-yard performances in the last five games.

Zone-reading: The Seahawks own the league's top-rated rushing attack. RB Marshawn Lynch and QB Russell Wilson have combined for 1,635 yards. With the elusive Wilson at the controls, the Seahawks run the zone read more than any team in the league. More than half of Wilson's 679 rushing yards have come on zone reads or other designed runs.

Many happy returns: The Eagles have a league-best six special teams touchdowns this season, including two on punt returns and two on kickoff returns. Darren Sproles is second in the league in punt returns and the Seahawks are 31st in punt coverage. But P Jon Ryan has had just 14 of his 44 attempts returned.
