Dirty Seattle hit reminds angry Eagles fans of Wentz injury originally appeared on NBC Sports Philadelphia

Backup John Wolford was set to play quarterback for the Rams' Wild Card game against the Seahawks on Saturday afternoon, as Jared Goff dealt with a lingering thumb injury.

And then, in a repeat of last year's Eagles-Seahawks Wild Card game, a starting quarterback suffered an early head injury and left the game.

That's right: a Seahawks defender once again committed a dirty-looking hit and injured the opposing starting QB in the playoffs.

Sound familiar, Eagles fans?

Here's the hit from Saturday, in which safety Jamal Adams hits Wolford in the head as Wolford is heading to the ground:

Just unnecessary. Defenders will likely say Adams was in the act of the hit as Wolford was heading down, but there are simply better and less-dangerous ways to go about making that tackle.

And here is the Jadeveon Clowney hit on Carson Wentz from almost exactly one year ago, in the Wild Card round of last year's postseason:

It's not exactly a great look for Pete Carroll's team.

And Eagles fans immediately (and angrily) made the connection:

Even when they don't actually make the playoffs, Eagles fans can't escape being frustrated this season. 

Here's hoping Wolford is okay.
