Eagles Vs. Seahawks Final Score: Philadelphia Falls To Seattle, 31-14

Thursday night football between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Seattle Seahawks, which emanated from the CenturyLink Field in Seattle, WA, has come to a close.

So too, has the playoff hopes for the Eagles, barring some cosmic shift in the NFL universe.

That's because Philadelphia was finished off in Seattle by a final score of 31-14, following a fourth quarter collapse by quarterback Vince Young that produced two interceptions.

The Eagles actually opened the final frame with a touchdown and held the Seahawks scoreless on their next possession; however, once they got the ball back and started to make a drive towards the end zone, things began to fall apart.

From first and 10 at Seattle's 22-yard line, Young went short for LeSean McCoy, only to have it intercepted by David Hawthorne, who ran it back 77 yards for a touchdown, driving a stake through the hearts of Philly fans in the process.

Philadelphia would regain possession and Young would throw his fourth interception of the night with just minutes to play, but at that point it was pretty much academic.

Eagles Vs. Seahawks Score: Philadelphia Trails Seattle 24-14 Early Fourth Quarter

If the Philadelphia Eagles expect to keep their playoff hopes alive, they better do something -- and do it fast. They currently trail the Seattle Seahawks 24-14 early in the fourth quarter.

Quarterback Vince Young started the third quarter much like he did the first: By throwing an interception on the opening drive. And, just like the first quarter, Tarvaris Jackson was able to capitalize on the mistake, this time finding wide receiver Golden Tate to tack on another six.

Seahawks kicker Steven Hauschka did his thing and made it seven.

Philadelphia was finally able to get back into the end zone at the start of the fourth quarter, thanks to a 17-play drive across 82 yards. They needed roughly 10 minutes of possession, but it paid off when LeSean McCoy was able to run it in to pull the Eagles within 10.

Now they have to do something they haven't been able to do all game and that's keep the Seahawks out of the end zone.

Nnamdi Asomugha Injury Update: Eagles Cornerback Out With Neck Injury

Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha suffered a neck injury in the second quarter against the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday night at CenturyLink Field.

He is not expected to return.

Asomugha went up for a pass opposite Seahawks wide receiver Mike Williams and came down on the back of his head. To make matters worse, Williams came down on top of him.

The former Raiders standout was slow to get up and had to be helped off the field. Aside from a possible injury to his neck, he's also being examined for head trauma.

The loss of Asomugha could turn out to be a major blow for the Eagles, who already trail Seattle 24-7 in the fourth quarter and need to make some magic happen to keep the game -- and their playoff hopes -- alive.

Stay tuned to SB Nation Philadelphia for further updates to Asomugha's injury as they become available.

Eagles Vs. Seahawks Score: Philadelphia Trails Seattle 17-7 At Halftime

The Philadelphia Eagles were able to get on the board in the second quarter of their Thursday night match-up at CenturyLink Field. Unfortunately, so did the Seattle Seahawks, which means it's still a ten-point game.

The home team drew first blood when running back Marshawn Lynch turned on the jets and sprinted one in from 40 yards out and after Steven Hauschka split the uprights, the Seahawks took a commanding 14-0 lead.

Philadelphia was able to answer on the very next drive thanks to a mental error on the part of Seattle, one that left Riley Cooper all alone deep in Seahawks territory. Vince Young was able to air one out for a 47 yard completion and give the Eagles a shot at scoring from the third yard line.

Two plays later, that's exactly what they did.

It remained a seven-point game until late in the half, when Seattle was able to drive downfield and put Hauschka within range, and the 49 yard attempt was good to make it 17-7.

Philadelphia threatened with a few seconds left to play, but an up-for-grabs bomb into the end zone was batted away.

Eagles Vs. Seahawks Score: Philadelphia Trails Seattle 14-0 Early Second Quarter

The Philadelphia Eagles are on the road in week 13 to take on the Seattle Seahawks tonight at the CenturyLink Field in Seattle, WA. After last week's loss to the New England Patriots, the Eagles are trying to prove they're still in the NFC East playoff picture.

So far, all they've proven is they can't find the end zone.

After winning the coin toss, the Seahawks weren't able to get anything going on their opening drive. The Eagles took over at the 12:38 mark -- and proceeded to give the ball right back to the home team.

That's because quarterback Vince Young went deep for wide receiver DeSean Jackson, except he found Seattle's Kam Chancellor instead. The Seahawks were able to capitalize on the mistake and drive 65 yards across five plays to make it a seven-nothing game.

Seattle has now scored to open the second quarter making it 14-0.
