Why Washington Football Team Will Win
Okay, Dwayne Haskins, let’s do this.
The Football Team needs to know if it’s big draft pick from a few years ago can get it done now that Alex Smith is hurt with a leg injury, but he’s helped by a defense that’s playing lights out over the last four games – all wins.
The D has forced eight takeaways in the run, the run defense isn’t allowing much of anything, and the secondary is one of the best in the league at limiting the deep ball – a must against Seattle.
Why Seattle Seahawks Will Win
Haskins isn’t awful, but …
The team wasn’t winning with him in, which wasn’t necessarily right considering he had one miserable game against Cleveland, threw for 314 yards against Baltimore, and then was benched after a lackluster effort the following week.

It was against the Jets, but Seattle played its strongest game of the year in the 40-3 win. The ground game was great, Russell Wilson was solid, and there was just one turnover. The Seahawks are getting a good groove out of the ground game with …
Fantasy Football Player To Watch
RB Chris Carson, Seattle
He hasn’t been fantastic, but he’s been able to crank out over five yards per carry and be used a bit as a receiver. He’ll never be the star of the show, but he has a receiving touchdown in each of the last three games and in six of the last seven.
What’s Going To Happen
Can the Washington D come through? It’s this simple for Seattle – it’s 9-0 when it doesn’t turn the ball over multiple times, and it’s 0-4 when it does. Washington has forced two more more takeaways in three of the last four games, and …
Haskins will be fine. Seattle will turn it over a few times.
