John Keim at ESPN.com predicts a 26-17 Seahawks win, “The Seahawks have won 27 of their past 33 home games, including all three this season. Add to that the injuries Washington is dealing with — tight end Jordan Reed, left tackle Trent Williams, right guard Brandon Scherff and receiver Jamison Crowder — and their task is even tougher. There’s a chance four backups will start along the line Sunday. If the Redskins are to win, they must take advantage of a defense that allows 4.58 yards per carry (26th in the NFL). The Redskins’ 13th-ranked passing defense will be tested by the third-ranked passing offense. They’re 0-4 vs. high-level mobile quarterbacks.”
Elliot Harrison at NFL.com sides with the Seahawks, 26-21, “The Redskins couldn’t ask for a worse matchup. Down at least three starters on the offensive line, flying out to Seattle to face that front seven isn’t ideal. If the Cowboys’ rush presented problems (Dallas forced a Kirk Cousins fumble and a batted ball that decided the game last Sunday), can you imagine what the Seahawks will do with a bunch of nutso Sounders fans screaming their collective heads off? That said, this game will be close, as the Redskins’ pass rush can make life equally tough for Russell Wilson, even with Duane Brown now protecting the QB’s blind side. It would serve both teams to run the football, which neither has done consistently. Intriguing matchup: Chris Thompson vs. Seattle linebackers.”
Pete Prisco at CBSSports.com picks Seattle over Washington, 27-17, “The Seahawks are coming off an impressive offensive showing against the Texans behind Russell Wilson, while Washington struggled in a loss to the Cowboys. This is a long trip and the Redskins are banged up on the offensive line. That’s not a good thing at Seattle with that defensive front.” Seahawks.com
