This game has two big headlines besides both the quarterbacks being sensational rookies. One being Robert Griffin III’s health. Four weeks ago, we saw RG3 take a nasty hit during the Ravens game that knocked him out of the game and made him miss the game the following week. Since then, he has not looked like the same guy running all over the field. He has looked good, but he has not had those explosive moments that we have become accustomed to. However, he is getting closer to 100 percent healthy and he will need it.
This brings me to my next big headline, the Seattle defense. The Seahawks’ secondary is unbelievable. They got a huge break when Richard Sherman’s suspension was overturned. As if that was not good enough, they also get Brandon Browner back after he served his four-game suspension. RG3 will have to make precise passes down the field if he does not want these two running it back for a touchdown.
These two teams are so similar. Both quarterbacks can run. Both running backs can run even better. Both defenses play physical every play and never give up on a play. This is the most evenly matched game, but I think the Seahawks will win. Rg3 not being fully healthy will finally be exposed and the Seahawks will take advantage. Seahawks win and head down to Atlanta. So, Seattle or Washington who you takin?
