Through 3 Quarters

The Washington Football Team are giving their home crowd exactly what it was hoping to see. They have emerged as the frontrunner after three quarters and are ahead of the Seattle Seahawks 17-9.

Washington has been riding high on the performance of RB J.D. McKissic, who has punched in one rushing touchdown in addition to snatching one receiving TD. No one has had a standout game offensively for Seattle, but QB Russell Wilson has led the way with one touchdown. Wilson has been efficient, with a passer rating of 151.70.

the Seahawks have lost 100% of the time when they were down heading into the fourth quarter this year, so this one seems just about wrapped up

What to Know

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 favorite. 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 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.
