Seahawks beat Eagles instant reaction: But I was told that would be impossible?

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at Seattle Seahawks Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports

According to several websites, the Seattle Seahawks beat the Philadelphia Eagles 24-10 on Sunday night. We must start to ask ourselves: Has Russian hacked our internet again?

I was told all week that the Seahawks stood no chance of beating the Eagles. That Carson Wentz is the MVP, that Seattle’s defense is in r.e.m. sleep mode without Richard Sherman and Kam Chancellor, that Bobby Wagner is a laughable DPOY candidate, and that the Hawks could not slow down Philly’s run game which is obviously “great, not just good.”

So explain to me then how these box scores say that Wentz was “merely average” and shut down for most of the game, that the Eagles’ run game was contained, and that Wilson had three touchdowns and no interceptions. Please, find a way to explain that, because we were all clearly told that the Seahawks were huge underdogs and could not win this game even if they were at home in primetime. The most simple solution is the most obvious one: hackers.

You win this round, Russia, but I am not so easily fooled. I was very clearly corrected in my pre-game predictions on BGN last week and I’m pretty sure that these scores and stats are faked. Better luck next time.

I go into more depth on the Facebook post-game show:

Seahawks beat Eagles? This must be some sort of clerical error. Thought that wasn't possible? And more.
