Russell Wilson good, Seahawks defense bad
Number four: Washington running back Antonio Gibson has 140 total yards
While Antonio Gibson’s snaps per game have not greatly increased the last couple of games his usage per those snaps has. In week 10, Gibson ran the ball 24 times and had 2 receptions. In week 11, Gibson ran 19 times for 95 yards even though his snaps fell to 33 from 46 in week 10. Basically, this means when Gibson is in the game he is likely to get the ball.
Seattle’s run defense has been solid for the most part this year. While Seattle ranks 24th in yards allowed per game rushing (122.2), throw out week 2 against Derrick Henry and the Titans and they allow just 112.2 which would be 17th in the NFL. In the last four games, the Seahawks have allowed 94.25 yards rushing a game. That’s good.
But I think Washington uses Gibson a lot this week and incorporates him into the passing game more. He isn’t exactly Alvin Kamara, but Gibson will resemble Kamara-lite and have a solid game against Seattle.
Number three: Russell Wilson throws for 320 yards and 3 touchdowns
For absolutely no reason, I think Russell Wilson has a good game this week. Washington’s pass defense was worse early in the year but they only allowed 220 and 247 yards passing respectively versus the Buccaneers and Packers. What makes me think Russell Wilson will do better in a bad offense compared to Tom Brad and Aaron Rodgers? The answer: No idea.
There are absolutely no trends heading into this game suggesting Wilson will be good (313 passing yards total in the last two games). But Wilson is too good to be too bad for so long, right? In this game, he plays well and Tyler Lockett has 200 yards receiving and 2 touchdowns as well.
