Why Washington can cover

The offense is getting steady play from Taylor Heinicke. In the past two games, the journeyman quarterback has completed 40-of-56 passes (77.8 percent) for 462 yards and four touchdowns without an interception. In the red zone, he is 6-of-7 for 40 yards, three touchdowns and no picks. That’s an improvement over the first eight games of the season, when he completed just 63.9 percent of his passes for 11 touchdowns and nine interceptions.

By contrast, Seattle’s Russell Wilson has struggled in his last three starts. Since returning from a Week 5 finger injury, Wilson has completed just 54.9 percent of his passes for 520 yards and only one touchdown versus three interceptions. Prior to the injury, he completed 72.5 percent of his passes for 1,044 yards and nine touchdowns with zero picks.

Why the Seahawks can cover

Linebacker Bobby Wagner continues to produce at an incredible rate. The six-time All-Pro player leads the league with 115 total tackles this season. Last week, he made 14 stops against Arizona, which was his third 14-tackle effort in his last five games.

Led by Wagner, the defense has done an excellent job keeping teams out of the end zone. Seattle is giving up just 20.9 points per game, which ranks seventh in the league. One of the keys to the defense’s success has been its play on third downs. The Seahawks are allowing opponents to convert just 37.3 percent of their third downs, which ranks ninth.
