Seahawks Lose Another Close One

For the third week in a row, the Seattle Seahawks did just enough to lose, dropping a 20-17 contest to the Washington Redskins. In a game that saw Seahawk legend Jim Zorn come back as head coach of the 'Skins, Seattle seemed to get a handle on star running back Clinton Portis. That is until the second half. In the closing minutes of the game, the Redskins were able to use Portis to take the ball from deep in their own territory to an almost certain touchdown. The Seattle defense made what looked like a game saving play recovering a fumble. Matt Hasselbeck, however, threw right away to Redskin coverage and the ball was picked off by Sean Springs. Maurice Morris (above) rushed for 103 yards in his best effort this year for the 'Hawks.
