SEATTLE (AP) - After starting off with a bang - a 90-yard touchdown pass - the Seattle Seahawks crumbled yesterday as they lost to the Philadelphia Eagles, 26-7. After that team-record TD pass from backup Seneca Wallace to Koren Robinson, the Seahawks punted 10 consecutive times - seven times after three-and-outs. Seattle, is now 2-6 for the first time since its last losing season in 2002. They lost for the third time in four home games. Seattle was missing three Pro Bowl players - including quarterback Matt Hasselbeck, out for the fourth consecutive game - plus a former Super Bowl MVP in Deion Branch. Pro Bowl linebacker Lofa Tatupu was out with a groin injury, his first miss after 55 consecutive starts to begin his career. Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb was hot, completing 28 of 43 passes for 349 yards and two touchdowns. The Seahawks' next game is next Sunday at Miami.
