The Eagles and Seahawks are set for an intriguing Monday night matchup, with both teams facing similar adversity. Seattle is coming off their fourth-straight loss of the season after losing to the San Francisco 49ers without quarterback Geno Smith. The Seahawks need a win to get back in contention, while Philadelphia has been blown out in back-to-back weeks and needs a win to remain in contention for the No. 1 overall seed. With Friday’s practice set to begin, we’re looking at ten Seattle players to watch in Week 15. Mandatory Credit: Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports Smith was listed as limited in practice Thursday after missing the Week 14 loss to San Francisco. Smith has completed 64.4 percent of his passes for 2,918 yards with 15 touchdowns and nine interceptions this season. Drew Lock was 22-of-31 for 269 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions in the 28-16 loss to San Francisco. Mandatory Credit: Darren Yamashita-USA TODAY Sports After missing two games due to an oblique injury, Walker III returned to action in Week 14, finishing with only eight carries for 21 yards and four catches for 33 yards in a loss to the NFC West rival San Francisco 49ers. The Philadelphia Eagles, who rank sixth in the league in run defense (94 rushing yards allowed per game) offer a stout matchup. Mandatory Credit: Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports With 36 yards against the Eagles, Metcalf will become the third player in NFL history to reach 50 receptions, 900 yards and five touchdowns in each of his first five seasons. Through 12 games this season, the Seahawks star has compiled 864 yards on 51 catches with seven touchdowns. Mandatory Credit: Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports Lockett hauled in all six of his targets for 89 yards in Sunday’s 28-16 loss to the 49ers. Always efficient in his route-running, Lockett has 65 catches, for 711 yards and 4 touchdowns through 13 games. The 30-year-old is in jeopardy of missing the 1,000-yard mark for the first time since 2018. Mandatory Credit: Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports Josh Sweat is tired of getting pressures, and he’ll have plenty of opportunities to log sacks against the Seahawks left tackle. Mandatory Credit: Darren Yamashita-USA TODAY Sports In six games since Williams was acquired from the Giants, the Seahawks have gone 1-5. Williams has been productive, racking up 18 total tackles, three sacks, four tackles for a loss, eight quarterback hits and 10 pressures. Mandatory Credit: Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports According to PFF, Wagner has 37 defensive stops in the run game this season2nd most in the NFL this season. Seattle Seahawks cornerback Devon Witherspoon (21) scores a touchdown after intercepting a pass thrown by New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones (not pictured) in the second half. The Seahawks defeat the Giants, 24-3, at MetLife Stadium on Monday, Oct. 2, 2023, in East Rutherford. Witherspoon missed last week’s game with a hip pointer, but the first round pick is in the Defensive Rookie of the Year running, and could use Monday night to plead his case. Mandatory Credit: Darren Yamashita-USA TODAY Sports A Pro Bowler as a rookie, Woolen is a having a down season through 14 games played. Mandatory Credit: Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports Jamal Adams, 28, is in his seventh NFL season and fourth with the Seahawks. He missed most of last season because of a torn quad tendon. Adams leads the team with seven tackles for loss, but he can be a liability in pass coverage. Adams has been on the injury report with a knee issue but should be ready for Monday against the Eagles. Mandatory Credit: Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports Heading into Week 15, Quandre Diggs has allowed a career-worst 105.1 passer rating and has missed 11 tackles (13.1%). On the season Pro Football Focus has him graded out below 50.0 in coverage and just above it in tackling. In 13 games this season, Diggs has just 1 interception and 3 passes defended.
