First Half Notes: Seahawks vs Redskins

Quick notes and takeaways from the first half of the Seahawks' Week 9 matchup against the Washington Redskins.

SEATTLE, Wash. — After two quarters, the Seattle Seahawks trail the Washington Redskins 7-2 in a low-scoring ballgame at CenturyLink Field. Here are some quick first half highlights:

  • Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner scored the first points of the game after sacking quarterback Kirk Cousins in the end zone for a safety. Wagner's safety is the first for Seattle since they recorded one against Tampa Bay last season on a holding call.
  • Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson threw just his fifth interception of the season at the end of the first quarter. Looking for wide receiver Doug Baldwin, Wilson was picked off by Washington cornerback Kendall Fuller, who read the play and jumped Wilson's pass perfectly. The Redskins were unable to capitalize off the turnover on the ensuing drive, however.
  • As expected, new Seahawks offensive lineman Duane Brown made the start at left tackle and has played pretty much every snap.
  • In the first quarter, the Redskins gained just 21 total yards on four offensive drives.
  • Seahawks running back Eddie Lacy suffered a groin injury in the first half and is doubtful to return. Thomas Rawls has taken over in the backfield and has gained 20 yards on three carries.
  • The Seahawks missed out on three scoring opportunities in the first half. Kicker Blair Walsh, who entered the game 12-of-13 on field goals this season, has missed three attempts thus far. Seattle also hurt themselves by committing nine penalties for 64 yards.
