Seahawks Vs. Redskins Recap By The Numbers: Marshawn Lynch Shines In Tough Loss

For three quarters on Sunday, the Seattle Seahawks looked to have things well in hand. Things all fell apart in the final ten minutes, however, as the Washington Redskins scored 16 unanswered points and walked away with a 23-17 win.

The main offensive force for the Seahawks was running back Marshawn Lynch, who averaged 4.6 yards on 24 carries and finished with 111 rushing yards. He also managed to pick up some receiving yardage on a 20 yard touchdown pass in the second quarter.

Quarterback Tarvaris Jackson had a pretty uneven game, finishing 14-for-30 with 144 passing yards, two touchdowns and an interception. The interception was Seattle's only turnover. Jackson's touchdown passes were to Lynch and a 15 yard pass to Golden Tate early in the fourth quarter that would prove to be the final Seahawks score of the game. That catch resulted in Tate's only yardage in the game. Doug Baldwin led all Seattle receivers with 60 yards on five catches.

Seahawks Vs. Redskins Final Score: Rex Grossman And Washington Scores 16 Unanswered Points, Beat Seattle 23-17

The Seatle Seahawks looked like they were in great position to pull off the win against the Washington Redskins, but they didn't play all four quarters and it cost them.

Seattle was up 17-7 thanks to a Tarvaris Jackson connection with Golden Tate, but Washington came marching right down the field with Rex Grossman, and Roy Helu punched it in with a highlight-worthy run. After a quick three-and-out by Seattle, the Redskins turned to Grossman, and on a 3rd and 19, he aired one out for Anthony Armstrong in the edge of the end zone for a 50 yard strike to give Washington a 20-17 lead--the extra point was blocked. 

Seattle's offense stagnated after going up 17-7, picking up a grand -9 yards on their final four drives. Seattle punted twice, turned the ball over on downs and Jackson threw an interception to end the game. In this game, the fourth quarter made all the difference for both teams.

Seattle falls to 4-7 on the season and are pretty much out of contention for the NFC West title and probably the wild-card as well.

Seahawks Vs. Redskins Score: Seattle Hanging Onto 17-14 Lead

The Seattle Seahawks and the Washington Redskins didn't do much with their opportunities the rest of the first half after the game was tied. Washington saw a five and a half minute, 11 play, 61 yard drive end in a blocked field goal. Seattle had an 11 play, four-and-a-half minute drive go only 47 yards and end in a punt. Both teams exchanged interceptions, punts and missed field goals early in the third quarter too.

Seattle finally got the benefit of a huge Josh Wilson pass interference penalty in the red zone, setting up a Steven Hauschka 36 yard field goal to put Seattle up 10-7. Seattle then used a methodical 88 yard drive, using Marshawn Lynch and Leon Washington rushes along with Tarvaris Jackson connections with Ben Obomanu, Doug Baldwin, Michael Robinson, and Golden Tate for the touchdown to put Seattle up ten.

Washington responded almost immediately, as Rex Grossman connected with Fred Davis, Santana Moss, Jabar Gaffney and Roy Helu. Helu then made an incredible 28 yard run to get into the end zone to cut the Seahawks lead to three early in the fourth.

Redskins Vs. Seahawks Score: Rex Grossman Looks Great, But Throws A Pick, Tied At 7-7

The Washington Redskins and the Seattle Seahawks are a study in contrast today, particularly at the quarterback position.

Rex Grossman has coming out wheeling and dealing (against all odds). The embattled Redskins quarterback completed seven of eight passes for 79 yards, using mostly play-action passes to find his men. Grossman particularly connected with his tight end Fred Davis three times for 53 yards on his opening drive, including the two yard touchdown pass. That drive took up eight minutes of the first half, and Grossman is firing on all cylinders as he's completed 13 of his first 14 passes.

Seattle's offense has yet to get going, but thankfully Grossman finally came undone with a bad pick thrown to Brandon Browner. Tarvaris Jackson immediately capitalized with a 20 yard touchdown pass to Marshawn Lynch, and Seattle is suddenly all tied up with Washington despite having six less first downs and 100 yards less of total offense. Strange game up at Century Link Field.

Kam Chancellor, Russell Okung Fined For Actions During Rams Game

The Seattle Seahawks were playing some smash-mouth football against the St. Louis Rams last Sunday, but apparently were playing a little too rough for the league's liking as strong safety Kam Chancellor and offensive lineman Russell Okung were both slapped with penalties for actions taken during the game, though Chancellor is feeling it a lot more in his wallet than Okung. 

Chancellor was fined $40,000 for his hit on St. Louis Rams tight end Lance Kendricks last Sunday, and previously was fined $20,000 for his hit against Anquan Boldin two weeks ago, though he isn't worried about becoming known as a 'head-hunter.' 

"I just turned my head to the side like they asked me to do from the previous week and tried to do it with my shoulder, and when he fell down his head just went into my shoulder," Chancellor said. "That's the call that they were looking for to call so that's what happened."

Chancellor is seen as a 'repeat offender' by the league, thus the doubling of his fine this time around. Nevertheless, Kam won't be playing with any less intensity or emotion moving forawrd:

"They ask me to compete and they tell me stay in the middle of the field and protect the middle so I'm going to compete like I know how to, hit as correct as they want me to and play the game like I know how to," he said.    

As for Okung, he was fined $7,500 for a unnecessary roughness penalty in the second quarter against the Rams. Okung pulled Rams linebacker Brady Poppinga from the pile following a one-yard run by Marshawn Lynch on a 1st-and-10 play, eventually leading to a Seattle punt during the drive.

Seahawks vs. Redskins Odds: Seattle Opens as 4.5 Point Favorite

As the Seattle Seahawks look to earn their third straight victory in a row this Sunday over the Washington Redskins, Pete Carroll's boys are listed as slight favorites this week, according to

Seattle opened as a 4.5 point favorite this week over the struggling Redskins, though the line shifted a bit back in Washington' favor and now sits a 3.5. The status of quarterback Tarvaris Jackson and his injured pectoral muscle may have caused some oddsmakers to sway away from the Seahawks just a little, even though the Redskins let a win slip through their fingers last week against the Cowboys, marking their sixth straight loss of the season. 

The small spread and struggling Redskins leads me to believe that this could be some easy money this week, as long as the Seahawks can continue their strong play with the running game. This game also includes a 37.5 over/under, another thing to think about when placing bets this weekend.
