Three things to see
The Terry McLaurin Performance
Washington’s wide receiver is an elite talent and with Heinicke giving him the ball again in key positions, he is letting the league see it. No one in the Seahawks can match McLaurin’s combination of size, speed, or agility. He was key to defeating the Panthers last week and having another big game under bright lights.
DK Metcalf Show
The Seahawks also need to take their size speed-intensity receiver outside once again. Wilson failed to hit home runs with Metcalf in his return game but Washington’s questionable corners were a good opportunity to put him on track to join Tyler Lockett back in the big playground game mode.
Carroll and Rivera
The two veteran coaches with a defensive mindset have met many times in key positions. Carroll has faced a tougher time than usual lifting his team this season, due to Wilson’s need to miss time. Rivera, after some major initial staffing hiccups and injuries along with a chaotic defense, the WFT were better off playing together to at least spoil with a limited chance of a return to the playoffs. Washington’s players will be pumped into the night for guests who stumble on their long road.
279.6. That’s the average number of yards the Seahawks missed this season, coming in at 30th in the NFL. That puts them a bit behind Washington’s team. Heinicke threw a hot ball across the field and McLaurin and the others were opening up in the situation of Scott Turner’s foul. WFT will happily take down the Seahawks, while the Seahawks can get too conservative.
Prediction between Seahawks vs. Washington
The Seahawks’ offense will come to life as they need to rely on Wilson more just in case with back yard staffing concerns and WFT worse for passing than running. Heinicke will go to the penalty shootout, as Washington can also run the ball well with Antonio Gibson to open play down the field for McLaurin and the others. The defense pressed in for a moment before a rather classic goal developed.
