NFL: Seattle 24, Washington 14

Jan. 6, 2013 at 8:02 PM   |   Comments

LANDOVER, Md., Jan. 6 (UPI) -- Marshawn Lynch put Seattle ahead with a 27-yard TD run Sunday and the Seahawks rallied past Washington 24-14 in an NFC wild card playoff game.

Lynch's scoring run with 7:08 left in the game gave the Seahawks their first lead and Steven Hauschka added the second of his two field goals 1 1/2 minutes later following a Robert Griffin III fumble to seal the victory.

Lynch finished with 132 yards on 20 carries and Russell Wilson accounted for 254 total yards with a touchdown pass as Seattle overcame a 14-0 first-quarter deficit to advance to next week's divisional round.

There they will next play at NFC top seed Atlanta.

Wilson went 15-of-26 through the air for 187 yards and carried the ball eight times for 67 yards as the Seahawks broke an eight-game post-season road losing streak.

Griffin completed 10-of-19 passes for 84 yards, two TDs, an interception and a lost fumble for the Redskins, re-injuring his troublesome right knee in the fourth quarter.

Logan Paulsen and Evan Royster each caught a scoring pass for the losers.
