SEATTLE — What’s the first thing that comes to mind when Seattle Seahawks fans hear the word «Eagles» during home games, a familiar call to mind: The Eagles?
The teams last met in Super Bowl history in Super Bowl XLVI, when the Seahawks beat the Eagles 28-14 in a blowout. In the past four years, the two teams have met once for the first time — the second game was also a Super Bowl — and the Eagles have won both.
«They’re an awesome team,» said Chris Leak, Seattle’s defensive backs coach for two of the last five Super Bowls.
The Seahawks have now won at least 13 games in eight of the last nine years and have lost at least 12 games in 11 of the last 15.

We played a real good defense on both sides. I think우리카지노 we got to be better, and we’ve got a tough division right now in our conference right now. But I’ve got a great group of guys I trust, a great coaching staff, and great defensive line playing and all that stuff going right now.»
When Seattle defeated the Eagles by 20-3 in the 1999 season opener, the Seahawks led 22-0 going into the fourth quarter before a field goal by John Stallworth cut it to 21-21. This time, Carroll’s defense was able to keep the Eagles off the field for the last 3:08 of the game and kept it off the scoreboard for the remainder o
