The Seahawks play the Redskins of Washington on Sunday in Seattle. Seattle is 5-2 and tied for first in the NFC West. The Redskins are 3-4 and have lost two straight.

Seahawks fans, rejoice! For the only time in the 2017 Seattle will be playing the second of two straight home games. This week Seattle will play Washington. The Redskins are decimated by injury. In fact, Washington literally will not be able to field a full team Sunday due to so many players on injury lists.

Seattle will be without one of their best players Sunday too, however. Safety Earl Thomas has been ruled out due to a hamstring strain. He suffered the injury against the Houston Texans last week. In his place Seattle has a good replacement, though. The Seahawks signed veteran safety Bradley McDougald this offseason for just this reason. McDougald is no Thomas, but he is better than anything Seattle had last season when Thomas was lost to a broken leg.

Seattle should win this game even without Thomas, however. Quarterback Russell Wilson played spectacularly against the Texans and should continue that into this week. The biggest question is whether the Seahawks can mount any kind of running game. Washington has only four healthy defensive linemen Sunday. Plus, Seattle traded for left tackle Duane Brown this week. He alone should help the Seahawks improve on the ground.
