Seahawks vs. Redskins: Final Game Grades and Analysis for Seattle

Final Score: Seattle 24, Washington 14

The Seattle Seahawks had an early battle brewing with the Washington Redskins. Early on it appeared this game could go the way of the first three Wild Card games, as the home team won each of them in somewhat boring fashion.

But there was a reason why the Seahawks led the league in scoring defense, as they completely shut down the Redskins' offense over the final three quarters. The officials allowed a fair amount of contact in passing routes, a decision that favored Seattle's nature of play.

Seattle's offense wasted several opportunities before taking control of the game in the fourth quarter. Marshawn Lynch made up for a lost fumble and Russell Wilson did just enough to get the team over the top.

The Redskins have made the playoffs three times since the Seahawks returned to the NFC. Seattle has ended Washington's season each of those years.

Seattle will face the Atlanta Falcons next Sunday at 1 p.m. ET for a spot in the NFC Championship game.
