The Washington Redskins are preparing to take on the Seattle Seahawks in just a few hours. Here are the keys to today’s game.
Today is a crucial day for the Washington Redskins. Just one week after the most important game of their season, they find themselves playing in yet another huge contest. With a 3-4 record, the Redskins are travelling to Seattle to take on the Seahawks. The Seahawks, who have a terrific homefield advantage, sit at 5-2 right now.
This would be a tough game for the Redskins in a normal week. However, this week is far from normal. The team had over 20 players listed on their injury report this week, and they have been shuffling their roster to ensure that they have enough healthy bodies to field a team. It’s been one of the more insane stories in the NFL, as the Redskins just haven’t been able to stay healthy since the start of Week 3.
Now, with their season in the balance and a squad at less than full strength, the team has to play one of the best teams in the NFC in one of the hardest places to play. This has a David and Goliath type feel to it, as the Seahawks are heavily favored to win the game.
Still, the Redskins will have a chance to emerge victorious. They just have to make sure they achieve these three things as they take on the Seahawks. Here’s a look at the keys to the game.
