11. Seattle Seahawks (5)
One week after ending up on the winning end of what may have been the most thrilling game of Week 8 against the Houston Texans, the Seattle Seahawks ended up on the complete opposite end this time around against the Washington Redskins. And to top it off, the loss on Sunday means the Seahawks are officially out of first place in the NFC West at the moment, as the Los Angeles Rams will takeover the position for at least the time being.
After only scoring two points over the first three quarters, Seattle seemed like they were going to earn the win against Washington thanks to a comeback in the fourth quarter that consisted of Doug Baldwin hauling in a 30-yard touchdown to take the lead with less than two minutes in the game. But after the Seahawks’ defense immediately allowed the Redskins to earn a 70-yard touchdown drive of their own that only took 35 seconds, it was up to Russell Wilson all of a sudden to be the hero for his beloved team.
Unfortunately, the challenge was just too much for Wilson and the offense to handle this time around, as they failed to come through with another game-winning drive. Then again, if only the offense had played better over the first three quarters, Seattle never would have been in this position to begin with.
