“Lock and Load: Drew Lock’s Last-Minute Heroics Propel Seahawks to Stunning 20-17 Victory Over Eagles in Rainy Thriller”

SEATTLE – Drew Lock threw a 29-yard touchdown pass to rookie Jaxon Smith-Njigba with 28 seconds left and the Seahawks pulled off an incredible 20-17 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on a rainy Monday night at Lumen Field to clinch the Big Four. . – loss of game slip. The victory keeps the Seahawks (7-7) in the NFC finals where three games remain in the regular season. The Eagles (10-4) have lost three straight. Three immediate impressions of the game: Play of the year It was a nice moment for Drew Lock and a much needed spark for the Seahawks. We are talking about a block. Key block. You remember that, right? OK, OK. You would be forgiven for missing the game from the start of the third quarter until the end of the game. We’ll come back to that shortly. The real moment — the most memorable moment of this Seahawks team’s season — was Lock’s inch-perfect throw to Smith-Njigba on the right side of the end zone for the game-winning score in the final seconds. The lock, standing in the middle of the field when the group started around him, looked straight up at the sky, the rain, and got wet for a moment. Lock played a mostly cautious game Monday night, making his second straight start in place of the injured Geno Smith (groin). The Seahawks offense looked disorganized and lethargic for most of the first half, and the Seahawks were probably lucky to only trail 10-3 at halftime. Lock’s best play came early in the third quarter when he passed the ball to Kenneth Walker III. Lock then ran about 25 yards around the right sideline and used his left shoulder to get past a key block by Eagles safety Eli Ricks at the goal line, giving Walker room for a nifty 23-yard TD to tie the score at 10-10. . . But that was before the Seahawks got the ball back with 1:52 left, trailing 17-13 and having to drive 92 yards to take the lead.
