Seattle Seahawks (3–8) 15 | Washington (5–6) 17
Washington controlled the second quarter to lead 17–9 before a late touchdown by Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks; Seattle however failed on a two-point conversion that would have tied the game on Monday Night Football.
Wilson completed eight of his 20–31 completions on the final drive of 96 yards that took 2:04 minutes. He threw for a total of 247 yards and two touchdowns; but was sacked twice on 14 hurries from heavy pressure.
Wilson’s two-point conversion pass intended for Freddie Swain was picked off by Washington’s Kendall Fuller in the end zone; Fuller pulled off of his receiver to just beat Swain for the interception.
Seattle had made a successful on-side kick that was reversed for a penalty. The infraction was due to the player lining up one yard left over a center hash mark, attempting to take advantage to get closer to the direction of the kick. The second on-side attempt failed to end the game.
Washington QB Taylor Heinicke completed 77.1 percent on 27–35 attempts, for 223 yards, one touchdown pass, and one interception.

Three plays later, Jackson avoided being sacked by scrambling backward about 13 yards to find an open Mark Andrews in the middle of the end zone to extend the lead to 13–3.
