2021 hasn’t been kind to the Seahawks. For much of this season, Pete Carroll’s squad has been at unprecedented junctures for all the wrong reasons.
They currently sit at 3-7, their worst start through 10 games since Carroll was hired in 2010, they were shut out this year for the first time since 2011 and they started someone other than Russell Wilson at quarterback for the first time since 2011 as well.

All of this, coupled with ranking 25th in points scored and 30th in total yards has the Seahawks well on the outside looking in of the NFC playoff hunt. They’d need to win six of their last seven games to finish above .500, which they’ve done every year since 2012.
Seattle has been led by Wilson, who’s completing just under 65 percent of his passes and averaging 223.4 yards per game to go along with 10 touchdowns and three interceptions. However, their running back room has been hit with numerous injuries, most notably to former 1,000-plus yard rusher Chris Carson, who’s out for the year with a neck injury.

Washington, meanwhile, has a path — albeit a tough one — to the seventh and final playoff spot in the NFC. A win against Seattle would put the Football Team just a half game back for seventh and would see them leapfrog the Eagles for second place in the NFC East.
Despite having a defensive minded head coach in Ron Rivera and longtime former coach Jack Del Rio as defensive coordinator, Washington ranks near the bottom in most major defensive categories, but has been kept afloat by competent quarterback play (66.2 percent completion percentage, 15 touchdowns and nine interceptions) from Taylor Heinecke, as well as strong play from wide receiver Terry McLaurin.
This game is one that’s a must win for both teams as Washington looks to stay alive in the playoff hunt and Seattle looks to keep its season from going even farther off the rails.
