The Seahawks will win because of a non-offensive touchdown
Washington started the season giving up an average of 28 points in their first five games. But in their last 8 games, they have allowed an average of just 17 points. The Seahawks offense is basically the flip of that. Through eight games Seattle averaged 34 points a game. But in their last five they average 24 points and one of those games was last week when Seattle scored 40 points against a Jets team that would have trouble winning most of its games in the SEC.
In the last five games for Washington’s offense, they have averaged 23 points a game (I threw out the three defensive touchdowns Washington has scored in those games. But here is an important part, in the last five games the Seahawks defense has allowed just 16 points game.
So after doing some screwy match and taking into account a lot of medians I think the Seahawks win 21-20 in week 15. How?
Chris Carson will run for the two touchdowns I mentioned earlier, Washington will get two touchdowns (one passing and one rushing) and kick two field goals but the difference in the game will be a defensive touchdown by the Seahawks.
Jamal Adams will finally get his first interception of the season (after dropping one that hit him in the chest in week 16) and return it for a 36-yard touchdown early in the fourth quarter. This play will be the difference in the game and set Seattle up for an NFC West showdown in week 16 against the Los Angels Rams.
