I'm not optimistic about the Redskins' chances against Seattle. The Seahawks concede the fewest points per game in the NFL, they have an excellent rush attack and they have a resourceful and elusive QB. Terrific combination.
My hope is twofold. One, despite their scoring prowess, the Seahawks defense is actually among the poorest in yards per carry allowed, at 4.5. Since the 'Skins can run the ball, there's a glimmer here. Two, Eli manning's utter confusion at FedEx. He didn't know what he was looking at. If the 'Skins can do that to a vet, maybe they can also do it to a rookie.
It's not much, but hey, it's something.
