2 Games That Should Give Redskins Fans Nightmares

A Look Back At 2 Games That Should Give Redskins Fans Nightmares Going Into The Seattle Game

WEEK 8:  Washington Redskins @ Pittsburgh Steelers
October 28th, 2012 - Steelers 27, Redskins 12

The Steelers game was without a doubt the Redskins worst performance of the season.  The Steelers held Alfred Morris and RGIII to 67 rushing yards combined. In addition to excellent defense the Steelers also controlled the game offensively with a balanced attack.

And the dropped Goodness..the dropped passes! At least 10 of them.  The conditions in Pittsburgh were rainy and blah, but that is no excuse.  The weather looks dry on Sunday night, but will it dry out the receiver's stone hands?

The Seahawks defense may be the biggest challenge of the season since week 8 for the Skins.  And if the Redskins repeat the effort they put forth in Pittsburgh they could find themselves in quite the predicament.

WEEK 16:  San Francisco 49ers @ Seattle Seahawks
December 23rd, 2012 - Seahawks 42, Niners 13

Forget the Redskins, this game should scare the entire NFL. Just 2 weeks ago Seattle didn't just absolutely dissect the NFL's 4th best defense but also they held also held San Fran's usually steady offense to only 13 points.

Russell Wilson's 15 completions in the game might seem average, but 4 of them were touchdown throws.  The Niners couldn't find an answer to Marshawn Lynch on the ground either as he went over 100 yards, something you don't see happen against Jim Harbaugh's defense very often.

The Seahawks cooled down a hot Collin Kaepernick, and while he may not be as mobile as RG3, he is still a dangerous double threat.  The Redskins are going to have a long day if the week 16 Seattle team shows up again.
