Redskins-Seahawks: A Different Look

*The Washington Redskins on Monday play host to the Seattle Seahawks in an NFC battle at FedExField. With a look at a few interesting nuggets from Monday's matchup,'s Andrew Walker brings you this week's "Redskins-Seahawks: A Different Look," presented by Kaplan University, the Exclusive Higher Education Partner of the Washington Redskins.




]( Washington Redskins lead the NFC with 11 sacks so far in 2014, and a huge part of that performance is the play of outside linebacker Ryan Kerrigan. The Purdue product is the NFL's co-leader in sacks so far with five, thanks in part to a four-sack performance Week 2 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, as well as a takedown of New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning Week 4 at FedExField. The 2014 season marks the second consecutive year in which Kerrigan has recorded five sacks in the team's first four games of a season. On Monday, Kerrigan can record a half-sack to become the eighth player to register 30.0 career sacks with the Redskins, joining Dexter Manley, Charles Mann, Monte Coleman, Ken Harvey, current teammate Brian Orakpo, Dave Butz and Andre Carter.

The Redskins on Monday hope their recent run of regular-season success against the Seattle

A look back at some of the top images in games between the Washington Redskins and Seattle Seahawks.

Seahawks can continue. A win for Washington at FedExField Monday would extend the team's regular-season win streak against Seattle to seven games. The team's last regular-season loss to the Seahawks came on Sept. 20, 1998.

A win for the Redskins on Monday would also be the first time they have defeated the defending Super Bowl champion since they took down the New York Giants, 17-16, on Dec. 3, 2012. The Redskins have defeated a defending champion twice since 2000 (2000 at St. Louis and 2012 vs. the New York Giants).

Through four games this season, first-year punter Tress Way is on a record-shattering pace.

On Monday – should he get any punting opportunities – Way will look to continue his NFL record pace of 53.0 yards per punt, which is more than yard and a half ahead of Redskins legend Sammy Baugh's full-season NFL record of 51.4 yards per punt, a mark he set in 1940. If way can record a 60-yard punt on Monday, he'll become the first Redskins punter to record a 60-yard punt in five games in a single season since Matt Turk accomplished the feat back in 1998.
