Defensively, Seattle for the second consecutive week received a spark from Kam Chancellor, who skied for one of two Carson Wentz interceptions and tipped another pass on third down while blitzing. The Chiefs have now rallied from a 14+ point deficit in the fourth quarter in two games this season (Week 1 vs. San Diego and Week 10 at Carolina) and are the first team to have two such victories in a season since the 2003 Indianapolis Colts. If there was one play that encapsulated the game it was that Russell Wilson caught a TD. The Eagles' receiver corps is so bad Wilson's receiving touchdown set off a chorus of Twitter jokes about how he'd be Wentz's top target if he was in Philadelphia. Afterward, he admitted he's thinking about his mistakes. "I'm anxious about so many things". I would still advise against getting particularly used to this temperature of Sauce Castillo - I could very easily see this ending up as an Evan Turner-like cluster of awesome games surrounded on both sides by Arctic frostiness - but it's good to know he's capable of maintaining a five-alarm simmer for even this long.
"It was just me and him and I thought he was gonna throw it but he ducked so I just had to make the hit", Wagner said.

"He's done well", Pederson said of Turner. The tightly bound second-year back displayed his brand of bruising running style, plowing through would-be arm tackles and barreling shoulder-first into defenders. Drops have been something that has plagued the Eagles receivers as a unit, but Agholor has caught the bulk of the specific criticism.

The Eagles' injury report is extensive.
Running backs Ryan Mathews is day to day with a mild sprain in his right knee and versatile back Darren Sproles has a nondisplaced rib fracture. It moved three games ahead of defending division-champion Arizona and 3 1/2 games up on Los Angeles with six weeks left in the regular season. Leodis McKelvin left the game and was evaluated for a concussion in the second half and Halapoulivaati Vaitai exited late in the fourth quarter with a leg injury.
Cornerback Leo McKelvin is in the concussion protocol. That was basically the original plan to replace Lane Johnson, who recently served the fifth game of his 10-game suspension for using perfomance enhancing drugs.
NOTES: CB Aaron Grymes was released to make room on the roster for Turner. It's similar to the injury tight end Brent Celek is playing with, but is in a safer area according to Pederson. While that elevated Thomas Rawls into a bigger role, Prosise was selected in the third round of the National Football League draft out of Notre Dame to provide depth.
