The Redskins and Seahawks don't play often, but it's always a big game when the two teams get together.
On Sunday, the Redskins head west to take on the Seahawks in a pivotal Week 9 matchup.
The Redskins enter Week 9 having lost two straight games, and with a bevy of players injured and inactive, the matchup against Seattle's vaunted "12th Man" is not an easy proposition.
The Seahawks enter the game having won four straight, including a highly entertaining 41-38 win over the Texans in Week 8. Russell Wilson is a bona fide MVP contender and although the Seahawks' run game has been suspect at best, their defense is still as tough as ever.
The Week 9 game" between the Redskins and the Chiefs takes place at 4:05 p.m. ET on Sunday at CenturyLink Field in Seattle, Wa.
Redskins Kickoff with Chick Hernandez, Brian Mitchell and Trevor Matich airs live at 3:00 p.m. The trio returns on NBC Sports Washington Plus at 7:00 p.m. ET for Redskins Extra, followed by Redskins Overtime. (Channel Finder)
Redskins vs. Seahawks Live Blog:
5:13 PM: Rob Kelley plows in to the end zone after a brilliant drive and the Redskins lead 7-2. 13 plays, 71 yards. That was nice.
5:10 PM: The Redskins are driving. Vernon Davis is leading the way. A slight about-face from the first quarter.
4:59 PM: Blair Walsh misses the FG and somehow, it's still just 2-0 Seahawks. This is a weird game.
4:55 PM: Ryan Kerrigan is back on the field, but Ryan Anderson is now getting taped up.
4:50 PM: Ryan Kerrigan tried to stop the run from Thomas Rawls, and got blasted in the shoulder. Looks like Kerrigan is in pain. Again: Not great.
4:43 PM: Redskins CB Kendall Fuller has had a strong season through seven weeks, and it continues today with an interception. The Seahawks had good field position, and Fuller finally provided the Redskins with a bright spot.
4:35 PM: Another sack on Kirk Cousins. Two plays later, the Redskins are flagged for having 12 men in the huddle. This is the worst quarter of football the Redskins have played all season.
4:30 PM: The Seahawks are getting it going on the ground. That is not great, because as we discussed, the Seahawks don't have a running game worth anything.
4:28 PM: The good news: The Seahwks can't block the punt. The bad new, Redskins trailed 2-0.
4:27 PM: Kirk Cousins sacked in the end zone. Safety for the Seahawks.
4:25 PM: The Redskins get the ball back, albeit backed up on their goal line after another Seahawks punt.
4:22 PM: That was the 10th fumble of the season for the Redskins. Not Great, Bob.
4:21 PM: The Redskins fumble. DID THEY NOT READ WHAT I SAID AT 4:15 PM?!?!
4:17 PM: DeAngelo Hall is back on the field for the first time this season and is returning a punt for the first time since 2012.
4:15 PM: The Redskins force the Seahawks to punt. The Seahawks don't have a running game to speak of and their passing attack is not exactly dynamic. If the Redskins execute on offense and limit mistakes and turnovers, they can stay in this thing.
4:12 PM: Russell Wilson scampers for a long first-down run. Containing Wilson is going to be the biggest key to the game.
4:10 PM: The Redskins' first drive is done. Three-and-out. That is less than ideal.
4:05 PM: The Redskins will get the ball first.
4:00 PM: If you'd like to take a look at the inactives list for today, here it is. But be warned. It's not pretty.
3:55 PM: In case you didn't read the message below, let JP Finlay know that I should be on the #RedskinsTalk podcast. #GETTROYONTHEPOD.
3:45 PM: It's me, Troy Machir again. I'm back for another Redskins Live Blog. It's an important week because the Redskins really need to avoid a three-game losing streak to keep themselves in the hunt for a wild card spot. If you'd like, you can follow JP Finlay and Rich Tandler on social media. . JP and Rich are out in Seattle and JP is getting soaked by the rain. I don't feel bad because he still hasn't had me on the #RedskinsTalk Podcast.
