Seahawks 26, Eagles 15

QB Wilson is a triple threat for Seattle

SEATTLE — Everyone knew Russell Wilson could run and pass. But catch? The Seahawks quarterback showed he can do that, too.

Wilson threw for 272 yards and a touchdown in a win over the Eagles, and caught a 15-yard touchdown pass from Doug Baldwin. He became the first quarterback in franchise history to catch a touchdown pass, a well-thrown end-around from Baldwin to the athletic QB, who ran down the left sideline and dived into the end zone for a 23-7 lead.

Wilson was causing headaches for the Eagles well before his touchdown catch. He scrambled and threw across his body to find tight end Jimmy Graham on a 35-yard catch-and-run touchdown in the second quarter as Seattle built a 16-7 halftime lead. Rookie C.J. Prosise had a 72-yard touchdown run on Seattle's fifth offensive play, the longest run by a Seattle player since CenturyLink Field opened in 2002.

Philadelphia lost its fifth straight road game as rookie quarterback Carson Wentz got an education in facing one of the best defenses in the NFL. Wentz was good early, especially on Philadelphia's first scoring drive that was capped by a 4-yard socring pass to Zach Ertz early in the second quarter. Wentz then went 5-of-14 for 25 yards and two interceptions during the rest of the second and the third quarter.
