By The Numbers: Seahawks vs Redskins

Ten numbers that stood out from the Seahawks' 17-14 loss to the Washington Redskins.

The Seattle Seahawks fell to 5-3 on the season after losing 17-14 to the Washington Redskins on Sunday. Here are 10 numbers that stood out from the Week 9 contest: 

Bobby Wagner's first quarter sack of Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins in the end zone was the first Seahawks safety since last season's game at Tampa Bay that came on a holding call. 


With two sacks yesterday, Seahawks defensive end Dwight Freeney increased his career mark to 125.5, which leaves him one more sack from tying Derrick Thomas for No. 16 on the all-time sack list. 


Despite falling short, Seattle continues to stay close in every ballgame with a chance to win. The Seahawks have only lost by double-digit points three times in the last 108 games.


Luke Willson's 10-yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter gave him his third touchdown of the season. His three touchdowns tie a career-high for a season. 


Wagner arguably played his best game of the season yesterday. In addition to his safety, Wagner recorded 12 total tackles against the Redskins, a new season-high. 


Since 2015, Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin has recorded 24 touchdown catches. 


Seattle's defense held Redskins running back Chris Thompson to just 31 yards from scrimmage (20 rushing, 11 receiving). Thompson is Washington's leader in rushing and receiving with 704 total yards and five touchdowns.    


In place of Earl Thomas, Seahawks safety Bradley McDougald played all 63 defensive snaps in his first start with the team. 


Russell Wilson's 77 yards rushing were a season-high. 


New Seahawks offensive lineman Duane Brown played all 83 snaps on offense against the Redskins.
