The Washignton Football Team defended their home field on Monday night against the visiting Seattle Seahawks to wrap up another weekend of NFL football, and former Penn State defensive lineman Shaka Toney came through with a pretty important play. The game was anything but pretty to watch, but Toney recorded the first sack of his professional career, and it came in a clutch moment for the Washignton Football Team.
Just after the two-minute warning, with Washignton leading Seattle 17-9, Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was attempting to lead his team to a touchdown to potentially tie the game. Toney was in hot pursuit of Wilson as the quarterback ran to his right looking for an open receiver down the field. With no receiver open, Wilson was simply pushed down by Toney, who closed in and made the play for Washington. Toney took Wilson down for a loss of nine yards for his first professional sack.
Unfortunately for Toney and Washignton, Wilson rallied and led Seattle to a dramatic touchdown with a 32-yard touchdown pass with just 15 seconds remaining in the game. The two-point conversion attempt to tie the game at 17-17 was intercepted by Washington’s Kyle Fuller, and Washington recovered Seattle’s onside kick attempt to run out the clock of the remaining seconds for the win.
Toney was a seventh-round draft pick of Washington in the 2021 NFL draft following his First-team All-Big Ten performance with Penn State in 2020, and second-team All-Big Ten in 2019. Toney has appeared in just four games for Washington during his rookie season and just came out of the NFL’s concussion protocol.
