Shaking off the rust

The Seahawks have not taken the field since September 21. Breaks are nice, but the ‘Hawks may need to shake off some rust.

Meanwhile, the Redskins will be motivated, not only to take down a top team in the NFL, but also rebound from a horrible loss to the New York Giants.

Seattle will need to focus on getting in a groove early, and avoid any lapses in concentrate due to not being in a game situation for 15 days. The Redskins have a proud history, and the home crowd would love for the Seahawks to come in a little flat.
