A road win is good. Getting it without getting too beat up is even better, especially when the next game comes in just six days and against a team tied for the best record in the NFL --- the surprising Dallas Cowboys at 4-1.
Sure, the Seahawks were sloppy in their 27-17 “Monday Night Football” victory at Washington. But it’s a measure of the stature they’ve attained that they can make silly mistakes and still coast to a win on the road.
The Huskies (4-1, 0-1 Pac-12), idle last week, managed just 179 yards in the loss to Stanford and ranks last in the Pac-12 with an average of 370.2. This Saturday, the Huskies play at Cal (4-1, 2-1), which ranks 122nd out of 128 FBS teams in total defense, allowing 544.8 yards per game.
