The Wilson-to-Metcalf combination — plus another strong performance from the Seattle Seahawks’ resurgent defense — was enough for a 23-17 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday at Lincoln Financial Field.
Metcalf caught 10 passes for a career-high 177 yards while doing most of his damage against All-Pro cornerback Darius Slay. That topped his 160-yard performance at the same stadium in January, when he set an NFL rookie postseason record in Seattle’s wild-card win over the Eagles.
“It’s kind of like coming home,” Metcalf said. “A place that had a chance to draft me but didn’t, so I’ve got to make them pay.”
Monday’s victory gave Seattle (8-3) a one-game lead over the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC West, and it gave the Seahawks seven consecutive wins over Philadelphia (including playoffs) dating to 2011.
