The Seattle Seahawks overcame a 14-0 deficit and a poor performance in the red zone to knock off the Washington Redskins and move on to play the Atlanta Falcons next Sunday.
Hard-fought 20-13 victory over Jeff Fisher’s team serves as good tuneup for playoffs.
Third-year Seattle Seahawks tight end Anthony McCoy had dropped too many passes in his first two years, but he caught everything Sunday in perhaps his best game.
The Seattle Seahawks have lost a couple they could have won and won a couple they could have lost, rookie QB Russell Wilson has taken great strides, and the defense and running game have been every bit as strong as fans thought they would be.

The Seattle Seahawks have just four healthy wide receivers, and that has some people calling for the team to trade for Kansas City wide receiver Dwayne Bowe by today’s deadline. But the Hawks just need to use the guys they are already paying.
While the offense seemingly did enough in one of its best performances this season, Seattle’s defense gave up the winning touchdown with 20 seconds left in a 28-24 loss to the Detroit Lions.

A hamstring injury shut Baldwin down for most of the preseason, and he caught just three passes for 13 yards in the first two games.
