Lofa Tatupu does not play for the Eagles.
Repeat. Lofa Tatupu does not play for the Eagles.
Unfortunately he was A.J. Feeley's favorite receiver, nabbing three interceptions, the last a devastating and perhaps season-ending pick after Brian Westbrook went New York Giants game circa 2003, returning a punt 64 yards to set up a first down at the Seahawks' 14.
The game leaves the Eagles with an audible but faint pulse at 5-7 with New York coming to town next week.
Here's a quick look at the highlights, or more appropriately lowlights, from the game.
* Seattle's goal-line stand will be remembered for the Seahawks' ability to twice stuff Brian Westbrook less than 6 inches from paydirt. The real issue, though, came two plays before Westbrook even touched the ball. On second-and-goal and a falldown from the goal line, A.J. Feeley inexplicably tried to connect with L.J. Smith in the end-zone corner. The pass had no chance, setting up the flailing third- and fourth-down tries and the goal-line stand stood all the more important when the Eagles scored on their first possession of the second half.
* After Bobby Engram got shellacked into a game-changing fumble by Sheldon Brown to start the second half, Matt Hasselbeck went right back to him. On the Seahawks' next possession Engram went high to haul in a 14-yard grab.
* On third-and-1, the Eagles made yet another curious playcall, going deep for L.J. Smith on the right sideline, this after Brian Westbrook chewed up 9 yards on two carries prior. The pass, naturally, fell incomplete.
* The dull silver lining (and yes, we searched the clouds hard to find it after this one): The Eagles went the entire game without getting called for a penalty.
