The Philadelphia Eagles are set to finish the 2020 NFL season with six straight games against NFC foes with the Seattle Seahawks first up on Monday Night Football.

The two teams have met five times since Doug Pederson took over as coach of the Eagles with Pete Carroll and the Seahawks winning all five matchups. Monday’s matchup will be the third time the two teams have met in the last year in a half, with Seattle taking both meetings, 17-9.

The latter meeting was Carson Wentz’s first playoff game and it ended with the Eagles star being forced out with a concussion.

The Eagles 3-6-1 are still in first place in the NFC East until Thursday’s Thanksgiving Day matchup between Dallas and Washington, but a win over the Seahawks on Monday night would put the Birds backup one half a game in the division entering Week 13.

The Eagles are home underdogs according to BETMGM, with the visiting Seahawks getting the 5-point advantage on the road.

Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz threw for 235 yards, 2 touchdowns, and two interceptions in the loss, one a 50-yard pick-six.

Wentz was also sacked 5 times and has been sacked an NFL-high 40 times heading into Monday night’s matchup.
