Seattle Seahawks vs. Washington Football Team Pick – NFL Week 12

The Seattle Seahawks and Washington Football Team meet on Monday Night Football at FedEx Field in Greater Landover. The Seahawks are looking for a sign of life in Washington tonight. They are coming off back-to-back losses, and have dropped five of their last six outings.

Russell Wilson has never lost three straight games in his career. That streak is in jeopardy on Monday night. If the Seahawks didn’t have the Jacksonville Jaguars on October 31, we might be talking about a six-game losing streak.

Since beating the Colts on September 12, the Seahawks have won twice in nine attempts. Seahawks’ fans can blame Wilson all they want, and I don’t think he’s at 100% right now, but this just isn’t a good team. There are many quarterbacks that wouldn’t have success.

Wilson might have D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett, but the receivers aren’t getting open. They need better separation or Wilson is going to continue to struggle. Wilson had surgery on October 5 for a bad finger injury, he can’t be playing at full strength.

Washington was going into this season with some expectations. They were coming off a hard-fought loss in the playoffs against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Taylor Heinicke played his heart out in that one to put Washington in contention. This on a team with a stout defense.

In the first-half this season, we didn’t see either from Washington. For the first time in a while, Washington put on a complete effort against the Buccaneers in a 29-19 win. The Washington defense forced Tom Brady into 2 interceptions, which ended up being the difference in the game.

This looks like a different Washington team, and they’re right back in the wildcard mix in the NFC. Losing to the stumbling Seahawks could quickly flip the narrative right around, though. It’s a big game. Stick a fork in the Seahawks if this is a loss, and Washington needs to keep the momentum going. Head below for our free Seahawks vs. Washington pick on November 29, 2021.

Seahawks vs. Washington Prediction:

Russell Wilson needs help and I thought that begins with the running game. D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett have work to do, but everything would open up if they could run the ball. Seattle is 23rd in the NFL with 98.4 rushing yards per game.

Alex Collins is scheduled to play this week after appearing on the injury report this week. He has gained 381 yards and 2 touchdowns on 4.1 yards per carry. In his last four outings, Collins has run for 39 yards per game.

He’s only had one game over 50 yards this season, hence Wilson is forced to do more. Metcalf has to make an appearance for the Seahawks soon. He’s a big physical target, but hasn’t looked very fast this season.

Metcalf has found it tough to generate separation in the secondary. Wilson has to force balls that he otherwise wouldn’t have, and then when there are opportunities, he isn’t coming up with accurate passes. Against a Washington defense that has found new life recently, this could be tough on the east coast.

Washington is 24th in the NFL with 368.5 yards allowed per game. They’ve been stingy against the run all season, having allowed 98.5 yards per game for seventh in the NFL.

Neutralizing Collins and the Seahawks’ backfield shouldn’t be too tough. Then the secondary has been coming along for Washington as of late, too.

The last three weeks, Teddy Bridgewater passed for 213 yards, and then Tom Brady came back with 220 yards in the following game versus Washington. Cam Newton was held under 200 yards in their latest win.


Seattle Seahawks vs. Washington Football Team Betting Trends:

Seahawks

  • 1-5 overall in their previous six games
  • 3-7 ATS in their previous ten games versus a team with a losing record
  • 3-8 ATS in their previous 11 games on the road
  • 3-9 ATS in their previous 12 games versus the NFC
  • 1-5 ATS in their previous six games in November

Washington

  • 4-0 ATS in their previous four games in November
  • 6-2 ATS in their previous eight games after a win
  • 5-2 ATS in their previous seven games after covering the spread
  • 4-2 ATS in their previous six games versus the Seahawks at FedEx Field
  • OVER is 7-2 in their previous nine games as a home favorite at M&T Bank Stadium

With the secondary coming on for Washington, they are a pretty good unit at the moment. For a Seattle offense that hasn’t had any rhythm, it should be tough for them across the country in Maryland tonight.

The Seahawks are 30th with 298.6 yards per game and 19.4 points scored per game. The passing-game has had zero explosiveness this season.

They have 200.2 passing yards per contest for 26th in the league. Wilson has led the Seahawks to more than 20 points in just one game in the last six outings. That came versus a bad Jacksonville team.

Taylor Heinicke has developed some confidence after returning from the bye week. He passed for 256 yards and a touchdown without any mistakes against the Buccaneers, and then followed up with 206 yards and 3 touchdowns against the Panthers.

That bye has appeared to rejuvenate Washington. They’ve looked far better and should continue in a primetime spot on Monday Night Football. The Seahawks don’t look like a team to trust at the moment.
