Good morning, 12s. Here's a look at what's happening today – Tuesday, Nov. 30 – for your Seattle Seahawks.
What's Being Said: Washington 17, Seahawks 15
The Seahawks' late comeback attempt fell short on Monday night against the Washington Football Team, losing a heartbreaker 17-15. Seattle has now lost three straight and, at 3-8 on the season, must win out to avoid its first losing season since 2011. The Seahawks had chances to win on Monday, and nearly sent the game into overtime. They pulled within two points on Freddie Swain's 32-yard touchdown with 15 seconds to play, but the two-point conversion failed. Seattle then recovered an onside kick before a penalty was ruled, and Washington recovered the ensuing attempt.
