Washington continues to roll as they defeat the Seattle Seahawks 17-15

Washington has been hot, coming off of two straight wins they look to keep things rolling. The defense got things started by forcing a three and out. Seattle pinned them deep but Washington came out with an impressive opening drive. They drove all the way into the red zone before having to settle for a field goal. Washington is last in the NFL in first quarter touchdowns and those problems continue.

Seattle was faced with a third-down looking to avoid another three and out, and Russell Wilson found Tyler Lockett on a broken coverage. This play would set up a Gerald Everett touchdown ending the first. 

Things would not be much better on offense as they would punt after just six offensive plays. Luckily the defense would force another three and out, giving the offense the ball back quickly. Washington tried to take a deep shot but the ball was tipped in the air and it resulted in an interception.

Seattle came out with a big play to Tyler Lockett again; the next play Safety Landon Collins would force a fumble giving Washington the ball back. The offense would build off of this, as Taylor Heinicke found JD Mckissic for a touchdown with 50 seconds left. The extra point attempt did not go as planned. Seattle would block it and run it back for a two-point conversion that would tie the game at nine before half. 

Seattle would receive the second-half kickoff but Joey Slye would not do the kicking, as he went down before half and will be limited to only extra-point attempts. This meant that Washington would be extra aggressive on going for it on fourth downs in Seattle territory.

Washington’s defense would start the second half like they did the first with a three and out. The offense would carry the momentum over and score a touchdown, and this time JD Mckissic would run for one. With the crazy extra point earlier they would go for two and Antonio Gibson would run it for the conversion. Washington had all the momentum as their defense would force another three and out. As the third quarter ends Washington would force Seattle to have their fifth straight three and out. 

Washington was faced with a huge fourth and 1 to start the fourth, and Antonio Gibson would bust a huge run but it was negated due to a holding penalty. Washington was forced to punt instead. Seattle managed to pick up a first down ending their streak of five straight three and outs but it still ended in a punt.

On Washington’s next drive JD Mckissic would suffer a nasty injury and have to be carted off the field. They were then faced with a fourth down but with no kicker, they were forced to go for it, and luckily they converted. This time they had the ball at the three-yard line and went for it on fourth down once again, but this time the result was not as good. They failed to convert, giving Seattle the ball at the three-yard line with two minutes left.

Washington had an eight-point lead going into the two-minute warning. Russell Wilson would find Tyler Lockett for a touchdown, and this would set up a critical two-point conversion. Washington’s defense would get one last stop as Kendall Fuller picked off Russell Wilson on the two-point try.

All of a sudden Washington is one of the hottest teams in football as they now have a three-game winning streak. They will look to stay hot next week when they travel to take on the Raiders.
