Philadelphia Eagles vs. Seattle Seahawks Matchup Preview

Lots of backups on Philly's roster. And, still listed as questionable, LeSean McCoy might be added to that list.

I think that he will get the start and the playing time. If he's on your roster, you better wait til the last minute for word on his status before starting or sitting him.

Philly should be a bit angry after an awful loss to New England, but Vince Young and the receivers were a bit promising putting up over 400 yards through the air.

With Michael Vick and Jeremy Maclin still out, I think you can count on another big day for the Philly offense, statistically anyways.

Seattle has some injuries of their own. Sidney Rice is out for the year, and the offensive line has taken a few hits, meaning that their lone offensive bright spot, Marshawn Lynch, will be facing a tougher defensive stand than he has in the past.

Here are my start'em and sit'em picks for tonight's game.

Start: Vince Young, DeSean Jackson, LeSean McCoy, Brent Celek, SEA Defense, PHI Defense

Perhaps: Marshawn Lynch, Riley Cooper, Jason Avant, Doug Baldwin, Golden Tate, Kickers

Sit: Tarvaris Jackson, All backup RBs and WRs, Zach Miller

Sleepers: I think all SEA receivers are sleepers here, none of them are too ahead of the pack. Each of them has good games (or at least seasons) under their belt. With no front-runner, they are all big gambles.
Marshawn Lynch will face a lot of pressure since the O-Line and passing game is so weak, but the Philly Defense has not been great at all against the run. He's not exactly a stable start, but of all the Seahawks, I have to say he has the best chance to score.

As for predictions. Jordan and I both have Philly taking this one.
