Philadelphia Eagles – 14, Seattle Seahawks – 31 So much for any post-season hope the Eagles were clinging to, as the Eagles players can now start making plans for January that don’t include football.  Vince Young (240 total yards, 1 TD, 4 INTs) was terrible, throwing four picks including a pick six that he had no business throwing in the first place.  Vick will probably be back next week, but at this point it really doesn’t matter.  Tavaris Jackson (194 total yards, 1 TD) looked good, mostly because he only had to throw 16 passes to secure the win.  The role of game manager is one that seems to fit Jackson just fine… if he has to throw less than 20 passes, the Seahawks probably win the game.

Riley Cooper (5-94) led the Eagles receivers, but he had a bad lapse where he let a pass slip through his hands only to be picked off by Brandon Browner to kill yet another Eagles drive.  Desean Jackson (4-34) showed why no one should probably give him a big
contract; he showed a lack of effort, heart, and class all of which was epitomized by a moment caught by the cameras where Young was talking to him and Jackson seemed to blatantly ignore him.

Sidney Rice left the game in the first quarter with a concussion and has now been placed on IR.  Golden Tate (4-47, 1 TD) took advantage of the extra reps, leading the receivers in receptions including a beautiful TD grab in the back of the endzone where he had to extend high in the air and get both feet down just in bounds.  Doug Baldwin (1-21) only had one catch, but will probably have much better days coming up with Rice done for the year.
At least Lesean McCoy (17 car., 84 yards, 1 TD; 4 rec., 49 yards, 1 TD) continues to ring up yardage and touchdowns; with all the injuries to RBs this year, McCoy is starting to look more and more like the #1 fantasy RB, especially in PPR leagues.

Talk about Beast Mode… Marshawn Lynch (22 car., 148 yards, 2 TDs) kept his TD streak going at 6 straight (8 if you don’t count the Browns game where he didn’t play) and has over 100 total yards in 6 of his last 7.  He’s been simply amazing and could be a big spark for fantasy playoff squads.
