The Washington Redskins go on the road to take on the Seattle Seahawks at CenturyLink Field on Sunday. Washington is coming off a loss to their rival Dallas Cowboys in a game they lost 19-33. The Redskins have lost 3 of their last 4 games and will need to turn things around quickly to remain in the playoff picture. Seattle has won 4 straight games and are currently tied with the Los Angeles Rams for 1st place in the NFC West Division. The Seahawks are coming off a great win against Houston in what was possibly the game of the year as they scored late and won 41-38 in week 8 to keep pace with the Rams.
Washington is led by QB Kirk Cousins who has competed 67.9% of his passes for 1,900 yards, 13 touchdowns and 4 interceptions. The rushing attack has been led by RB Chirs Thompson who has 231 yards and 2 touchdowns. Thompson has also been the leading receiver on the team with 31 receptions for 442 yards and 3 touchdowns. TE Venon Davis has 312 yards and 1 touchdowns but the WRs have been largely ineffective so far this season.
Seattle QB Russell Wilson has been having a great season despite a lackluster running game and poor line blocking. Wilson has 2,008 yards passing, 15 touchdowns and 4 interceptions. He has also rushed for 194 yards and a touchdown. The Seahawks are still looking for an answer at RB since Chris Carson. The Seahawks spread it around on offense as Doug Baldwin, Paul Richardson and Tyler Lockett all have over 350 yards and TE Jimmy Graham has chipped in with 269 yards and 4 touchdowns.

JerbeeksPick to Cover the Point Spread: Seattle is coming off a game where their offense played great and everyone thinks they are now unbeatable.I feel that this line is slightly inflated and I think Kirk Cousins will find success against the Seattle defense and keep this game close if not win outright. I am going with a Seattle win of 31-28 but think the Redskins will keep it close and get the cover. My recommendation is to play the Washingot Redskins plus the 7 points. You may want to wait until closer to game time because I believe this line will rise as the week progresses. - If you went to the store and on the shelf was the exact same product, one for $110 and one for $105 which would you buy?
