PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Russell Wilson threw two touchdown passes, ran for another score and the Seattle Seahawks stifled Philadelphia’s high-powered offense in a 24-14 victory over the Eagles on Sunday.

Wilson had 263 yards passing and ran for 48 to help the Seahawks (9-4) win their third straight game. The defending Super Bowl champions have victories over NFC West-leading Arizona (10-3), San Francisco (7-6) and Philadelphia (9-4) in the last three weeks.

The Eagles host Dallas (9-4) with first place in the NFC East at stake next week.

Richard Sherman and Co. held the Eagles to 139 total yards, the fewest under Chip Kelly.

Pete Carroll was the winner in his first NFL matchup against Kelly. In the coaches’ only other meeting, Kelly’s Oregon Ducks beat Carroll and USC 47-20 on Oct. 31, 2009.
