Your defense can't give up a TD drive in 1:27.

Think about that. There were 26 secs left after the Seattle TD. That's unthinkable and unacceptable.
Again. Defense should have never been put in that position.

Not one, two chances to put it away and bad calling and execution.
It's the god damn defense's job. It's not supposed to be perfect. You have to be able to deal with what the game gives you.

They gave up TWO 3rd and 10s on that drive. TWO. They are, by far, the worst 3rd down D in the NFL. They dropped safeties 8yds behind the line to gain and the ball was thrown at the sticks and they weren't there. They let Lock stand back there and easily throw the ball.
The offense put them there by blowing TWO game killing drives in the 4th. Seattle gets the ball back with less than 2 to go Eagles could have been up at least 7 at that point if it wasn't for bad play calling and execution. Seattle comes down and ties well, theres overtime.

Let's agree to disagree and leave it at that.

This is self serving. There is no agree to disagree.

To try to boil it down to those 2 possessions just isn't right. I would tell you the key moment happened when Kelce stupidly tried to gain a ft of field position moving the ball before the Shove. They were gonna score a TD to go up 14-0.

That. Right there. That is where they lost the game. 14-0 makes Seattle quit. That lead means they run the ball more.

That said, there are any number of things that happened, including the defense being so bad on every 3rd down.

In the end, winning time, the defense has to hold.
