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.
