“Seattle Seahawks Secure Playoff Hopes with Drew Lock’s Late Heroics Against Philadelphia Eagles”

All eyes were on Drew Lock tonight as he slowly activated all of his weapons on the switch. That was the key for Pete Carroll and the Seattle Seahawksand#039; were able to beat the Philadelphia Eagles and keep their playoff hopes alive. Regulars like DK Metcalf, Kenneth Walker III and Zach Charbonnet have done well. But one rookie who always stands out in the clutch is Jaxon Smith-Njigba. The Seahawks rookie accomplished a feat that no one else has accomplished since 1960. According to ESPN Stats and Data, Jaxon Smith-Njigba became the only player in over half a century to have two game-winning drives in the final minute of the fourth quarter. The last time he did it was against the Cleveland Browns and it showed this time. Pete Carroll knew exactly what pattern to run against the Eagles in the final minute. He kept the rookie Seahawksand#039; gun inside the chest and allowed Drew Lock to find him with a hard arrow. That 29-yard pass took the life out of the Eaglesand#039; to the bench because they realized there wasn’t enough time to come back.
