Pro Football Focus previews Seattle-Philly game

Here is the weekly preview package of links and stats from Pro Football Focus.
ReFocused articles from the past week’s Hawks/Niners and Eagles/Cowboys games
PFF Team of the Week for Week 13 with mentions of Richard Sherman and Kam Chancellor
PFF Team of Third Quarter of the season with mentions of Marshawn Lynch and Kam Chancellor
 Signature Stats:
In the past two weeks without center Max Unger, Russell Wilson has had more than 2.6 seconds to throw on 68.3% of his dropbacks, the highest rate in the league.
Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez* actually gets the rid of the ball faster than Nick Foles (2.45 sec to 2.73 sec average time to attempt).
Sanchez leads the league in Play Action play rate at 34.0%. Wilson isn’t far behind, sitting in fourth among QBs with a 28.4%.
Huge dichotomy when it comes to Passing under pressure. Wilson has been under pressure 48.8% of his dropbacks (second-highest for QBs) while Sanchez is only at 29.8% (27th of 35). However, Wilson’s 70.5% Accuracy rate (7th of 35) while under duress is much higher than Sanchez’s 51.2% (31st of 35).
Running backs Marshawn Lynch and LeSean McCoy both have barely over 100 attempts in the last five weeks. However Lynch has a much bigger 98.7 Elusive Rating compared to McCoy’s 27.9. Beast Mode to McCoy differentials: +21 missed tackle and +0.90 yards after contact/attempt average.
PHI WR Jordan Matthews aligns in the slot 93.1% of the time and has the second-highest Yards/Pass Route Run out of the slot at 2.68.
*all Eagles and Sanchez stats start from Week 9 when he inherited the starting job
