Washington beat Wilson, Seahawks 17-15 for 3rd straight win

LAND LOVER, Md. – Kendall Fuller blocked Russell Wilson’s pass in a last-minute 2-point conversion, and Washington went on to beat the Seattle Seahawks 17-15 Monday night to claim the team’s third straight win.

Wilson led the Seahawks in a 10-player, 96-yard touchdown in the final three minutes. He connected with Freddy Swain on a 32-yard TD pass with 15 seconds left but appeared briefly to lead a memorable comeback on his 33rd birthday.

Seattle (3-8) was called up for an illegal penalty kick in the first attempt and failed to recover in the second. Wilson is 20/31 with 247 yards and two TD passes, but he’s lost three games in a row for the first time as the Seahawks’ starting quarterback, with his team’s playoff hopes. It fades out in the process.

Washington (5-6) took the last place of the NFC wild card with the win. JD McKissic caught a touchdown pass from Taylor Heinicke, ran for another and took 56 yards from the game against the team he joined the NFL with.

Heinicke and Co. were forced to go all out in the second half without being able to score after player Joey Slye injured his hamstring late in the second half in an attempt to score more but was stopped to take home two points. Heinicke dodged a few potential pitches and overtook Wilson in a game of maneuvering QBs, going 27/35 for 223 yards with a TD for McKissic and interception.

Different from each team’s typical results in prime time, Washington won at home on Monday night for the third time in 20 tries since FedEx Field opened in 1997. Seattle, home to the odds. NFL’s best win on Monday night, has dropped to these 11- 4 situations in Pete Carroll’s 11 seasons as coach.

Carroll’s Seahawks has been out of playoffs for the past three weeks. They were right into the game against Washington when Rasheem Green saved, recovered and added at half-time to equalize at 9, but the foul cooled after half-time.

Megan Imbert takes issue with that stance.
