Antonio Gibson rushed for a season-best 95 yards. Only once this season has the offense run for more yards and averaged more yards per carry.
In addition, the defense has been greatly improved on third downs. Over the last two games, Washington held the Buccaneers and Panthers to a combined 31.6 percent success rate on third down, seventh-best in the NFL over that time. Over the first 10 weeks of the season, Washington allowed opponents to convert 56.5 percent of their third downs, which was the worst in the league.
Why the Seahawks can cover
Seattle is strong in primetime games. Since Pete Carroll took over as coach in 2010, the Seahawks are 32-11-1 under the lights, outscoring opponents 1,128 to 792, or 7.6 points per game. They also are 11-3 on Monday Night Football over that time.
In addition, Seattle faces a Washington defense that has struggled keeping teams out of the end zone this season. Washington is giving up 26.7 points per game. Just four teams allow more: the Texans (2-9), Lions (0-10-1), Falcons (5-6) and Jets (3-8).
