I just wanted to take this time to let all of you know that the matchups zone crew will be taking a week off to spend with family and friends this Thanksgiving.
As such, there will not be a full matchups article for the Seahawks vs Redskins game this weekend @ Century Link. But I do have a few thoughts and I will even make a small prediction.
1. The Seahawks are about to play a team who loves 50 and wide 6 Defensive fronts with single high safeties. This means 1 on 1 matchups will be available for Tarvaris Jackson to take advantage of if our line can give him the critical seconds he needs.
2. The Redskins are a team who are struggling to win games primarily because of mistakes in key moments. They are not a team to be taken lightly. This game may be tough. Really tough.
3. Look for the Redskins to throw early, often, and consistently on Sunday. They are shuffling running backs in and out of the line up, and the Seahawks only weakness on paper is through the air, and with defensive penalties in coverage.
Final prediction: Seahawks-23, Redskins-21
Have a safe and memory filled Thanksgiving everyone! See you next week.
