Though it may be hard to believe, the Washington Redskins have never endured a losing streak of more than six games in a season under Dan Snyder's ownership. The six-game skid was also the longest of head coach Mike Shanahan's career, one he'd like to see halted in the near future.
With their 24-17 victory over the Seattle Seahawks, the Redskins moved to 4-7 and avoided extending a collection of worsts for their coach and franchise.
A win is a win no matter how ugly it may be, and the Redskins showed their grit against the improving Seahawks.
Needless to say that Washington had to win this game to save their spirits more than their season, and they got some big days from players who will factor in greatly in the future.
Here are the players who made the biggest contributions in the win over the Seahawks.
