The Seattle Seahawks emerged from a defensive arm wrestle with a 17-9 victory at the Philadelphia Eagles to book a date with Green Bay next week.

It was a nightmare evening for the Philadelphia offence after they lost starting quarterback Carson Wentz with a head injury after just two series.

Although he put in a game effort, 40-year-old replacement Josh McCown struggled against a ferocious Seattle defence that finished the game with seven sacks.

Quarterback Russell Wilson produced another sound all-round performance as he threw for 325 yards and a touchdown while also rushing for 45 yards on the ground.

Rookie receiver DK Matcalf had a breakthrough game with 160 yards and the touchdown that effectively sealed the game in a powerful outing.

Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch, who has come out of retirement to help the team deal with a big injury crisis, powered in for Seattle's other touchdown.

His 10th post-season rushing score put him eighth on all-time list.

The Seahawks head to Green Bay on on Sunday to take on the Packers in the NFC Divisional Round.
