After Cole Holcomb and William Jackson III combined to bring down running back DeeJay Dallas behind the line of scrimmage on third-and-short and force a Seattle punt, Washington began its next drive from its own 9-yard line.
On the ensuing march, wide receiver Curtis Samuel, who has been sidelined with a groin injury, picked up a first down with his first catch since Week 4. Five plays later, Heinicke threaded the needle on a deep ball over the middle for Logan Thomas, but the tight end took a big hit from safety Quandre Diggs and couldn’t come down with the ball, which popped into the air and floated into the hands of Jamal Adams at the Seattle 11 for an interception.
Wes Schweitzer, who was starting at center due to injuries to Chase Roullier and Tyler Larsen, limped to the sideline during the drive and was replaced by Keith Ismael. (Seattle 7, Washington 3, 4:40 left in the second quarter)
