Seahawks are tough in prime time

RENTON, Wash. -- Prime time is the right time for the Seattle Seahawks, especially Monday nights.

The Seahawks will enter the road game against the Washington Redskins Monday night with an eight-game winning streak on the line in Monday night games.

The last time they lost on Monday night was Dec. 6, 2004 in a home game against the Dallas Cowboys, a 43-39 defeat.

Seattle also has a streak of six consecutive victories in regular-season prime-time games. That includes the last two homes games against San Francisco (both on a Sunday night) a road victory at Arizona last year on a Thursday night, two Monday-night wins in 2013 (at St Louis and home against New Orleans) and the 2014 opener on Thursday night against Green Bay.

The last time the Seahawks lost any prime-time game was in San Francisco on a Thursday night, Oct. 18, 2012. Seattle has won 10 of its last 11 games in prime time.
