Washington Redskins vs. Seattle Seahawks: Live Scores, Video, and Analysis
Check out this game recap, courtesy of NFL.com
The Redskins improve to 4-7, tying the Philadelphia Eagles with last place in the NFC East. Although they are basically out of playoff contention, they get a good win on the road this week, despite some miscues.
Despite the win, the Redskins proved they still had a long way to go to be a true contender in the NFL, especially on offense and special teams, where several miscues made this game much closer than it should have been. Had it not been for two blocked field goals and two Rex Grossman interceptions, in addition to a slew of penalties, this game would have been a rout for the Redskins.
The fact that the Redskins were able to pull out a win after all the mistakes should be concerning for the Seahawks. who only had one good drive in this entire game, and were fortunate to have a bad pass interference call net them three points, and a bad Rex Grossman pass to put them in position to get seven points.
Still, Marshawn Lynch had a big day, as he put the team on his back to help make this a close game. If the Seahawks have one certainty, its that they have a special running back in Marshawn Lynch.
Hope everyone enjoyed the game; it was certainly an interesting one. Have a good night and enjoy the Sunday night game.
The Redskins come away with the 23-17 win, snapping the worst losing streak of Shanahan's career, with six games.
I'll have some post-game thoughts in a bit.
And the game is over with an interception to DeAngelo Hall, ironically, the man who asked to be cut from his team due to a struggling 2011 season.
Jackson faces third down already with 44 seconds to play. So far, Jackson's one-minute drive hasn't been very inspired.
Side note: Had the Redskins actually made an easy field goal and an even easier extra point, this game would be over, 27-17. If they lose this game, it will be a heartbreaker for the Redskins fans.
The kick is good, and the Redskins will give the ball to Seattle with about a minute left to play with a 23-17 lead.
The Seahawks offense will have to seriously step it up if they want to win this game. I have my doubts that Tarvaris Jackson can lead his team on a 1-minute, 80-yard drive, but anything is possible in the NFL, considering the many mistakes the Redskins have committed in this game.
Roy Helu is shy of the first down, and the Redskins will kick a field goal with 1:09 left.
The Seahawks have a chance to win this game, especially if the kick is blocked once again. And even if its not, it's still a 6-point game.
If the Redskins go on to win this game, it is a much-needed win for a team that lost six straight, but they didn't do it without making some key mistakes that very well could have given the Seahawks the win. Had the Redskins played a superior team, they would have likely lost today, considering all the mistakes they made.
...and Tarvaris Jackson is sacked.
The clock will run down to the two-minute warning, and the Redskins will very likely win this game, as the Seahawks only have one timeout left.
A two-yard gain has the Seahawks going for it at 4th and 5...
The Redskins tried to challenge the call on the field, but the call was ineligible to be challenged. The Seahawks are at 3rd and seven.
The Seahawks' hopes of winning this game were almost squelched by an intentional grounding penalty on third down. But the refs instead called a penalty on the Redskins, and the Seahawks have a chance on third and 7 to convert.
Seattle commits a dumb personal foul penalty to back them up 15 yards, so just when it looks like the Redskins are killing themselves in this game, the Seahawks do it right to themselves, as well.
The Redskins do very little on this drive, giving the ball back to the Seahawks with a little less than three minutes left to play.
The Seahawks still have a chance, and all of this is because of the several dumb mistakes the Redskins have committed. Had they not committed those mistakes, they would likely be up 34-17. Instead, they are holding on to a 20-17 lead.
The Redskins stop the Seahawks, and they will have a 20-17 lead with about 4:30 left to play. Will they be able to put the game away, or will they make another dumb mistake to give the Seahawks a chance?
Commentator Jim Mora went off on the special teams play, condemning the Redskins for allowing two blocked field goals in one game, kicks that would have made the game 24-17 rather than 20-17.
If the Redskins lose this game, it won't necessarily be by ineffective play, it will be by stupid mistakes that keep Seattle very much in this game.
Well, the Redskins were looking to go up by four points, and Red Bryant just blocked his second field goal, and his fourth of the season, and all of a sudden, the Seahawks are only down by three now.
With six minutes left, the Seahawks now only need a field goal to tie the game. And as I am writing this, kicker Graham Gano kicks the ball out of bounds, and the Seahawks will have the ball at the 40 yard line.
A huge 50-yard bomb from Rex Grossman to Anthony Armstrong gives the Redskins the lead with a touchdown pass. It is the Redskins' longest pass completion of the season.
The Redskins had another good drive going, but it has the potential to be squelched by an intentional grounding call. Third down coming up.
A three and out for the Seahawks, and the Redskins have the ball with a little less than eight minutes left in the game.
It looks like the Redskins have the momentum on their side, but will they be able to cash it into points?
Looks like Roy Helu was the injured player, but looks to be fine.
Redskins make the extra point and are now down, 17-14. Let's see if the Seahawks can repeat their success from their last drive and score another touchdown.
A huge run by Roy Helu in which he hurdles a guy, and then gains steam shortly afterward all the way to the endzone, is enough for the Redskins to score since the first drive of the game.
Redskins are now down 17-13 with an extra point pending due to an injured Redskin on the field.
Grossman completes a couple of solid passes, and the Redskins offense is showing some life for the first time in a while. They need to score here or the game could be over, especially with the way the Seahawks have performed recently.
Apparently, that drive was the longest drive of the Seahawks. Kind of symbolic of their struggles this season, especially on the offensive side of the ball. After this game, they will be 4-7, and while they are likely out of the playoff race, they will still likely finish second in their division, a small consolation prize.
