Washington, Seattle’s next foe, hammered by Giants; and a few other notes

The  NFL is the NFL and anything can happen on Any Given Sunday and all of that.

But any of the Seahawks who might have taken their bye week Thursday to watch their next opponent, Washington, couldn’t have found much to be concerned about.

Washington, which will host the Seahawks on Oct. 6., was dominated from start-to-finish in a 45-14 home loss Thursday night to the New York Giants (box score here).

Kirk Cousins, who is filling in for the injured Robert Griffin III (who will miss the Seattle game, as well), threw four interceptions while the defense gave up 449 yards to the Giants. That led to this summation of the night from coach Jay Gruden:

Indeed it was as Washington fell to 1-3, its only win against woebegone Jacksonville.

Here’s an early point spread of Seattle by six. That might only increase after tonight especially considering Washington also suffered a couple more injuries tonight, including a knee strain to left tackle Trent Williams. Williams, recall, is the player who got into it with Richard Sherman following the 2013 divisional playoff game.
