The Seattle Seahawks will head out on the road to face off against the Washington Football Team at 8:15 p.m. ET Monday at FedEx Field. Washington will be strutting in after a win while the Seahawks will be stumbling in from a loss.
Seattle came up short against the Arizona Cardinals last week, falling 23-13. One thing working slightly against Seattle was the run-of-the-mill game of their most targeted running back, RB Alex Collins, who rushed for 36 yards on ten carries.
Meanwhile, it was all tied up 14-14 at the half for Washington and the Carolina Panthers last week, but Washington stepped up in the second half for a 27-21 victory. Washington QB Taylor Heinicke was slinging it as he passed for three TDs and 206 yards on 22 attempts.
This next contest is expected to be close, with the Seahawks going off at just a 1-point favourite. They have failed bettors playing the spread in their past two games, so buyers beware.
Seattle is now 3-7 while Washington sits at 4-6. A couple of defensive stats to keep an eye on Seattle is worst in the league in yards allowed per game, with 401.8 on average. Washington has experienced some struggles of their own as they are stumbling into the matchup with the second-most passing touchdowns allowed in the NFL, having given up 24 on the season. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team-up.
