Washington combined an overwhelming defensive performance and 146 yards from Antonio Gibson’s scrum to defeat Seattle 17-15 in Game of Week 12 on Monday night.
The football team’s defense limited Seattle’s offense to six threes and strikeouts in that game, including a five-in-a-row streak at one point. It’s tied for most consecutive records and out of a team this season.
Gibson was Washington’s offensive player of choice, as he racked up 111 rushing yards on 29 carries and added 35 receiving yards on seven receptions, but JD McKissic was closest to the football team as he scored on a 10-yard reception and 10-yard yard. McKissic didn’t have a chance to score three points, however, as he was injured late in Washington’s last practice and was sent off the field.
That streak ended with what appeared to be a three-yard touchdown reception by Logan Thomas, but the scoring play was canceled during the review. Russell Wilson then led Seattle on his best practice of the night, scoring 96 yards in 10 games for nearly 17-15 on a 32-yard touchdown reception from Freddie Swain. Kendall Fuller intercepted the two-run attempt on the next play and Washington recovered the next play kick to close the game.
This contest had some sort of weird record, as defensive lineman Rasheem Green became the heaviest player in NFL history to score a two-point defensive conversion since rule changes made this guy. possible game in 2015 (by NFL Research).
Seattle (3-8) welcomes San Francisco next week. Washington (5-6) travels to Las Vegas to face the Raiders in Week 13.
