How to Watch
At least tonight's game isn't lacking in drama or narrative.
For Rams fans, it's about scouting future opposition. NFC West foe Seattle comes to St. Louis in two weeks; the Rams head out to Seattle in week 17 to close out the season, as has been the fashion of seasons late. But Washington, who has long been a feature on Rams schedules with seven matchups in the last 10 years, will host the Rams in week 14. And while things are certain to change for all parties involved between now and early December, it's as rational a reason as you could ask for if you needed one.
You shouldn't need one, though. It's Monday Night Football.
The Seahawks come out of the bye week looking to improve to 3-1 and keep pace with Arizona and San Francisco, both of whom have 3 wins in pocket. Washington on the other hand is trying to keep the season from spiraling out of control after being throttled 45-14 by the New York Giants a week and a half ago on Thursday Night Football. Washington offered the Giants six turnovers, four of them coming in the form of Kirk Cousins interceptions. It was a familiar sight for Redskins fans who have seen their team go 4-16 in their last 20 primetime games. And while the Giants themselves are in third place in the NFC East at 3-2, a loss tonight would set Washington far back, perhaps too far back for 2014.
