In a game that was decided by just 10 points, it is fair to say that the scoreline didn't do justice to the dominant Seahawks and made the Redskins look as though it was a contest. Realistically, there was no contest.

As soon as Russell Wilson took the Seahawks down the field on the first drive of the game and threw a simple touchdown pass to Jermaine Kearse with just two minutes and 10 seconds gone - it was clear to all how this one would play out. 

However, penalties hindered Seattle and kept the score respectable. Three times in the ball game Percy Harvin found the end zone only for each score to be ruled out due to a penalty flag. 

Sherman at it again

Throughout the whole game, the Seahawks received 13 penalties that cost them 90 yards in total and lively as ever, Richard Sherman had something to say:

“It should have been 45-10,” Sherman told reporters in the visitors’ locker room. “There was never a point where we were worried. I mean, we were in control.”

As well as those comments Sherman discussed his match up with Pierre Garcon, who struggled against Sherman and at one point appeared to pull Sherman's dreadlocks: 

“Pierre doesn’t matter in this league.” He was then asked to clarify the statement by reporters and followed up with, “I mean exactly what I said.”

“Yeah. Pierre did a few things. When you can’t get open, you got to do whatever you can. The crowd is acting like I’m holding him. Obviously the TV copy you can see what happened.” Said Sherman on the hair pulling incident.

Garcon had only two catches for 23 yards after being matched up against Sherman.

What should have been a 'Big Night'....

The penalty count also annoyed Head Coach Pete Carroll who was after a big night from his players:

“It could have been a big night for us,” Carroll said. “We were poised to have a big night. With the toughness, aggressiveness and speed, we came out flying. We were just a little bit out of whack.”

Russell Wilson stole the show for Seattle though. He rushed for a career high 122 yards and a touchdown. He threw for 201 yards and two touchdowns, completing 18 of 24 passes

Seattle (3-1) will come up against the Dallas Cowboys next week, while the Redskins (1-4) travel to Arizona to take on the Cardinals.
