Seahawks' Two-Minute Drill
Notes and quotes from Seahawks beating Eagles
Players of the game
• Running back Marshawn Lynch rushed for 148 yards, the most by any Seahawk player in five years. He scored twice in the first 16 minutes of the game, giving him eight consecutive starts with a touchdown.
• Brandon Browner intercepted two passes, the first time a Seahawk has intercepted two passes since Earl Thomas did it against San Diego in Week 3 last year.
Play of the game
More than half of the Eagles defense got a hand on Lynch on his first-quarter touchdown run. Fullback Michael Robinson had a great block in the hole, and then left tackle Russell Okung scraped off a would-be tackler.
Seattle never led by fewer than 10 points in the second half. That doesn't mean there wasn't any doubt, though. The Eagles had the ball at the Seattle 30 with less than five minutes to play and were threatening to make it a one-score game when linebacker David Hawthorne picked off Vince Young's pass and returned it 77 yards for the touchdown.
• Tarvaris Jackson completed 10 of 13 passes through the first three quarters. He had a quarterback rating of 141.2 entering the fourth quarter.
• The Eagles — who averaged 420.1 yards of offense coming into the game — were held to 330.
• Seattle intercepted four passes, its most in any game since five against Detroit on Nov. 8, 2009.

"It showed we're growing up. We still have a young team. Coach has us pointed in the right direction. Hopefully, it's not too late for us, but as we continue to go and continue to grow, I think we'll get better as a team and learn how to finish games." — Seahawks defensive end Chris Clemons
