PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- After Jadeveon Clowney knocked out Carson Wentz, Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks knocked off the Philadelphia Eagles.

Wilson threw a 53-yard touchdown pass to DK Metcalf, Marshawn Lynch had a rushing score and the Seahawks beat the Eagles 17-9 in the wild-card round of the NFC playoffs on Sunday night.

Wentz lasted two series in his first postseason start before exiting with a head injury following a helmet-to-helmet hit from Clowney.

Forty-year-old Josh McCown stepped in and became the oldest quarterback to make his playoff debut. He couldn't lead Philadelphia into the end zone.

The 12-5 Seahawks will go to Green Bay to face the Packers (13-3) next Sunday.
