When Walsh was signed in the offseason to replace Stephen Hauschka, there was obvious concern over the fact that his time with the Minnesota Vikings ended under ugly circumstances, as he never seemed to mentally recover from his missed 27-yarder against the Seahawks in the 2016 NFC Wild Card Game.
Heading into Sunday’s matchup against Washington, Walsh had made 12-of-13 field goals and 17-of-18 extra points. As of the first half, Walsh is now 12-of-16 on field goal attempts, as he’s missed wide left on all three kicks. His first one was from 44, his second was from 39 (and led to a Washington touchdown), and then he ended the half with a failure from 44 yards away. There were loud boos for Walsh and the Seahawks as a whole, as they played sloppy football and will have to come from behind to avoid ceding control of first-place in the NFC West to the Los Angeles Rams.

NFL Research’s facts show you how bad Walsh has been:
Blair Walsh missed 3 FG for SEA in the first half. First kicker to miss 3 first-half FG since Mike Nugent for CIN in Week 2, 2014 vs ATL— NFL Research (@NFLResearch) November 5, 2017

Seahawks fans will no doubt be on pins and needles if he has to kick for points for the rest of this game.
