The Mash unit that is the Washington Redskins head to Seattle to play the Seahawks. Washington’s got a ton of injuries which is hurting the offensive and defensive side of the ball. Seattle is coming off a win in the best game of the season so far over the Texans and just acquired local product Duane Brown to sure up the lone weakness the team has. Before the preview, let’s look at the trends:
- The Redskins are 2-5 ATS this season.
- They have covered 10 of their last 18 road games.
- Seattle is 13-19 ATS the last three seasons against the rest of the NFC.
- Washington has won four of their last seven trips to Seattle.
Listen, there’s no way you can pick Washington in this one. If Jamison Crowder and Jordan Reed are out, that means Pryor and Doctson will have to step up against the Legion of Boom. Oh yeah, that’s assuming Cousins gets enough time to pass the ball with a shady offensive line and a loud atmosphere that is very conducive to false starts. The defense should be able to hold it’s own early as they have all season, but eventually will get worn down. Seattle’s run game has been pretty non-existent meaning the secondary will be busy. I think Seattle wins by double digits in another game that a 100% healthy Washington team would have kept closer.
Seattle 24, Washington 13
