4 studs and 2 duds in Seahawks 20-15 win at Washington

A week after a dominant win over the Jets, the Seattle Seahawks reverted to their old ways of getting the victories in the most difficult way possible while giving every 12th man cardiac arrest. The Seahawks improved to 10-4 and took a playoff spot by beating the Washington Football team 20-15.
The Seahawks built a sovereign advantage of 20: 3 in the fourth quarter and had dominated. Washington looked lost to the Seahawks' improved defense while Russell Wilson and the floor game just chewed up the clock to control the game.
The football team, however, developed two back-to-back touchdown rides when the Seattle offensive stalled completely, terrifying the entire Pacific Northwest that the Seahawks might actually take a 17-point lead for the second time in franchise history.
In the end, the Seahawks escaped with an ugly win, but a win nonetheless.
No. 1 Studs - D.J. Reed and Shaquill Griffin

The corners of Seattle struggled for most of the season, but they had a nice getaway on Sunday, suppressing Washington's airstrike for most of the game. Shaquill Griffin grabbed one of the most formidable interceptions of his career on the Seattle three-yard line and put the Kibosh on a 48-yard drive from Washington with eight games. Meanwhile, D.J. Reed caught his own pick in Washington's inaugural run in the second half on the Seattle 21-yard line. Both takeaways killed promising drives for the soccer team that ultimately proved fatal in a five-point game. Reed finished with three passing deviations and Griffin also had two.

The Washington Football team may have some of the best defenses in the NFL, but during the first half the Seattle Seahawks treated them appropriately. Seattle had scored 13 points but felt completely in control and hit the ground. In the opening run of the second half, the Seahawks only needed four games before Carlos Hyde demolished a 50-yard touchdown run. Then it was over. The Seahawks offensive flared up completely and did not manage to score a single point as the game progressed. She fought to get the first defeats. When Washington managed to find the end zone on two consecutive trips, Seattle's offense responded with a disheartening three and more. You're lucky the defense saved you, otherwise you would bear most of the blame for one of the worst breakdowns in franchise history. The Seahawks have to be much better offensively if they are to beat the Rams next week.
No. 2 bolt - offensive line

While the Seahawks as a whole struggled for much of the game, one unit stood out on Sunday - the offensive line. The shorthanded offensive line played very well, especially against the wild Washington defensive front. They managed to keep quarterback Russell Wilson clean by not allowing a single sack and limiting quarterback hits to just three total. Impressive numbers against a four player line of defense with at least five bags apiece. They also paved the way for another monster foray on the ground when Chris Carson, Carlos Hyde, and even Russell Wilson all contributed to racking up 181 rushing yards.
No. 2 Dud - FedEx Field

The home of the FedExField Washington Football Team is one of the worst-maintained fields in the NFL. Known for its poor quality, FedEx is also home to some of the more gruesome injuries in the recent past. On Sunday the Seahawks took some hits and had some legitimate fears. Rookie who ran back DeeJay Dallas was dragged off the field in an air raid. Receiver DK Metcalf came awkwardly into the end zone when his foot appeared trapped in the grass and limped off the field. Safety Jamal Adams even went to the locker room once. Fortunately, both Metcalf and Adams made it back safely. However, this field is a legitimate concern. Back in the 2012 Wild Card Playoff game between Washington and Seattle, it was the site of Robert Griffin III's infamous knee injury as well as a torn ACL for Seattle's defensive end, Chris Clemons.
Stud No. 3 - Jason Myers

It's time Jason Myers received the recognition he deserves as one of the NFL's top kickers. As a pro bowler with the Jets in 2018, Myers had an up and down in his inagural season with the Seahawks in 2019 but turned it completely around. Myers stayed perfect this year with kicking field goals and connected all 18 attempts. On Sunday, Myers set a new franchise record at Seahawks by scoring his 31st straight goal, exceeding Olindo Mare's 2010 mark.
No. 4 bolt - line of defense

Overall, it was a good day for the Seahawks in the capital's trenches. Seattle's offensive line has been solid throughout, and the defensive line showed up in the greatest moments. However, this was not the case for most of the afternoon. In fact, this group was almost exactly in the dud category. Until Washington's last voyage, the Seahawks' line of defense hadn't even smelled quarterback Dwayne Haskins. The only sack of the day came from Jamal Adams. Then they met the former Ohio State signaler in the clutch. In Washington’s last 10 games, the Seahawks have fired Haskins three times, including one on 3rd and 15th to take it to 4th and 24th at Seattle 37, just 63 seconds left in the game.
