The Eagles fell to the Seattle Seahawks 24-10. After facing a 10-3 deficit at halftime, Philadelphia was unable to battle back late, dropping their first game since Week 2.

Quarterback Carson Wentz finished 29-45 with 348 yards, a touchdown, and an interception. Wide receiver Nelson Agholor finished with a career-high 141 receiving yards and a touchdown. With the loss, the Eagles drop to 10-2 on the season, snapping their nine-game win streak.  

The Seahawks took an early 3-0 lead thanks to a 46-yard field goal. Later, a pass interference call against cornerback Ronald Darby followed by a holding penalty call against Nigel Bradham placed the Seahawks just outside the Philadelphia 10 yard line. Wilson spotted tight end Jimmy Graham for a touchdown to put the Seahawks up 10-0 at the end of the first quarter.

Jake Elliott got the Eagles on the board on a 26-yarder to narrow the Seahawks' lead 10-3 with eight minutes to go in the second.

Early in the third, head coach Doug Pederson challenged the short-of-the-line-to-gain ruling but the call was upheld and Philadelphia was charged with a timeout. Inside the Seattle 10, Wentz dove for a 6-yard gain but fumbled the ball out of bounds in the back of the end zone which resulted in a touchback. Seattle took over from their own 20.

Midway through the third, Wilson found Doug Baldwin for a 48-yard gain before he was pushed out of bounds at the 1-yard line. Three plays later, Wilson and Tyler Lockett connected for a 1-yard touchdown to extend the lead 17-3.

With 3:51 to go in the third, Wentz's pass attempt to Kenjon Barner fell incomplete on fourth-and-three at the Seattle 25 which resulted in a turnover on downs.       

On their ensuing drive at the start of the fourth, Wentz linked up twice with Agholor- once on a diving 51-yard pass on third-and-13 and then again for a 27-yard touchdown on third-and-14- bringing the Eagles within 17-10.

The Seahawks responded with a 15-yard touchdown connection between Wilson and J.D. McKissic, putting Seattle up 24-10. The Eagles were unable to close the deficit as time expired.

The Eagles will head to Los Angeles next Sunday to play the Rams.
