The Seattle Seahawks and Philadelphia Eagles find themselves in a grinder of a playoff game. The teams looked like they might go into halftime tied 3-3, but Seattle drove 82 yards in the final three minutes of the second quarter to take a 10-3 lead on a Marshawn Lynch rushing touchdown. DraftKings Sportsbook has set the second half line on this game at Seahawks -1.5 and the point total at 20.5.

The big news thus far is Carson Wentz’s head injury. Jadeveon Clowney connected on him with an uncalled helmet-to-helmet hit that sent Wentz to the medical tent. After he was checked out, he went to the Eagles locker room and was announced as questionable to return. He did not return before halftime and his status is uncertain for the second half. Josh McCown replaced him and has completed 6 of 9 passes for 27 yards and rushed for 14 yards.

Russell Wilson has been the more prolific of the quarterbacks, throwing for 181 yards and rushing for 24. DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett have combined for 133 yards on nine receptions. Miles Sanders leads all running backs with 39 yards on seven rushing attempts.
