Seahawks Currently 7 Point Favourites

Published on October 3rd, 2014 8:04 pm EST

The 2-1 Seattle Seahawks will travel to Washington to take on the 1-3 Redskins on this week's edition of Monday Night Football.

The two teams are trending in opposite directions right now - the defending Super Bowl champions are fresh off of an exhilarating win over the Denver Broncos, while the Redskins are looking to bounce back after an extremely embarrassing loss to the Giants on Thursday Night Football last week.

Kirk Cousins, fresh off of a disastrous performance against the Giants, will get to contend against one of the best secondaries in all of football this week. This will likely leave Alfred Morris having to pick up much of the slack for the Redskins' offense, and this is easier said than done against the Hawks' defensive line.

The Seahawks, on the other hand, will look to befuddle the Redskins' defense with their multitude of offensive weapons. Russell Wilson, Percy Harvin and Marshawn Lynch have been giving opposing defenses fits all season and there is no reason to think that the game against the Redskins will be any different.
