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.
