Clinton Portis: He's a game-time decision again, but he's much more optimistic than he was a week ago. Everyone says he's feeling and doing better than at this time last week. So we would expect him to play. The only issue is his burst; he lacked one vs. Dallas, though clogged holes had something to do with that. Seattle's front isn't bad, but the Redskins should be able to run on them.
Santana Moss: The Seahawks have given up 15 touchdown passes this season. They like to blitz, but they're not very effective doing so and the result has been a lot of big plays in the passing game. Gotta believe he'll get a couple shots downfield.
Jason Campbell: See above. The Seahawks might apply some pressure, but this is not Pittsburgh or Dallas we're talking about. Campbell should be good for a touchdown or, for the first time in seven games, maybe even two touchdowns.
Shaun Suisham: He'll get his chances. The Seahawks' defense is still a little banged up. That means either lots of field goals or a couple field goals and a couple extra points.
Redskins' Defense: Seattle's offense is a little scary right now, with Matt Hasselbeck returning as well as receiver Deion Branch. Forget what they've done the last five or six games (which was very little). At some point this offense wi ll put together a couple strong games in a row. But we love the matchup of Washington's secondary vs. the Seattle receivers. They should make the ‘Hawks one-dimensional and are worth a play.
Chris Cooley: Lots of blitzes means lots of chances down the middle of the field against weak safeties, especially Brian Russell. Play him.
