Wilson, Robinson help Seahawks end Redskins' season

Posted: Updated:
LANDOVER, MD (WWBT) -

Many Richmond residents hoped to see the Redskins advance in the playoffs and keep their improbable season alive, but many also had a hard time cheering against two River City natives that took the field for the opposition.

Russell Wilson, Michael Robinson and the Seattle Seahawks recovered from a dismal first quarter to take control of the game and top the Redskins, 24-14.  After the first quarter, it looked as though Washington would run away with the game, leading 14-0 after two Robert Griffin III touchdown passes, but the Seahawks took control from there.  The Collegiate product Wilson connected with Robinson, a Varina graduate, for a touchdown in the second quarter, and Seattle had trimmed the deficit to 14-13 by halftime.

The Seahawks would take the lead for good in the fourth quarter when Marshawn Lynch broke off a 27-yard touchdown run and Seattle added the two point conversion to go in front, 21-14.  A field goal would round out the scoring, giving the Seahawks the win and ending the Redskins' season.

Griffin reinjured his right knee during the game.  In the first quarter, he moved with a noticeable limp and left the game in the fourth after twisting the knee on a bad snap.  He would end his day 10-of-19 for 84 passing yards, two touchdowns and an interception.

Washington gained 129 yards in the first quarter, but was out-gained by Seattle, 371-74, throughout the final three quarters.
