Seahawks finish No. 6 in sudden change situations

Sunday's matchup between the Seattle Seahawks and the Washington Redskins will bring together two of the best teams in the NFL in forcing turnovers and turning them into scores.

The Seahawks finished No. 6 in the league in sudden change situations this season, while the Redskins finished at No. 3 in the NFL.

Basically, sudden change situations are similar to points off turnovers in basketball — how defenses respond when their offense turns the ball over, and can an offense take advantage of turnovers created by a defense.

Both Seattle and Washington have done a better job creating turnovers in the second half of the season, which is why the Seahawks are riding a five-game winning streak and the Redskins have won seven straight.

In the last eight games, Washington has forced 15 turnovers while turning it over only five times (+10 turnover differential).

The Seahawks have forced 20 turnovers and only turned it over five times (+15 turnover differential) in the last eight games.
