Seahawks 27, Washington 17: First impressions

Bob Condotta: Penalties hadn’t really been an issue in the first three games for Seattle, with the Seahawks called for 19. But Seattle almost matched that against Washington with 13 for 90 yards, three nullifying touchdowns. That obviously can’t continue.

Jayson Jenks: It wasn’t pretty; no one would argue that. But the Seahawks showed the value of winning the field position battle. Time and again in the second half, the Seahawks pinned Washington deep. While Seattle’s offense couldn’t do much either, Washington faced too much of an uphill battle against Seattle’s defense.

Jerry Brewer: Russell Wilson was brilliant when the sloppy Seahawks needed him to be, setting a “Monday Night Football” record for most rushing yards by a quarterback (122 yards). He was also efficient throwing the ball, completing 18 of 24 passes for 201 yards. The Seahawks tried hard to beat themselves in this game, but Wilson wouldn’t allow it.
