Toomer: Going To Be Tough Deal For Eagles Up In Seattle
The Eagles start a three game road trip this weekend traveling to Seattle to play Sunday Night against a Seahawks team that has allowed only 19.3 Points Per Game this season, which is 9th best in the NFL. Despite season ending injuries to Richard Sherman, Kam Chancellor, and Cliff Avril the Seahawks still have All-Pro Linebacker Bobby Wagner along with Pro Bowl Defensive Linemen Michael Bennett and Sheldon Richardson. Seahawks are also ranked Tenth in the NFL in Forced Turnovers with 17 in their 11 games this season.
Amani Toomer of NBC Sports Radio joined Mike Gill on Wednesday and talked about the Eagles matchup with the Seahawks on Sunday Night Football:
“It’s going to be a huge test for this team – On the road, come together, going to see what they have; they’re doing the Electric Slide and all that stuff, now they are going to play some teams with a little bite. They’re not going to play against a team that’s downtrodden…It’s very interesting to see how this whole thing works out because there’s one thing that does always consistently happen in the NFL and that is teams become humbled. Look at the Kansas City Chiefs – I like the Eagles, I like Carson Wentz, and we’re going to see if this is their opportunity because playing against the Seahawks in Seattle, that place is ridiculous to try and play, they’re going to have crowd noise they have never even experienced before, it’s going to be a tough deal for them up there.”
