For three quarters on Sunday, the Seattle Seahawks looked to have things well in hand. Things all fell apart in the final ten minutes, however, as the Washington Redskins scored 16 unanswered points and walked away with a 23-17 win.
The main offensive force for the Seahawks was running back Marshawn Lynch, who averaged 4.6 yards on 24 carries and finished with 111 rushing yards. He also managed to pick up some receiving yardage on a 20 yard touchdown pass in the second quarter.
Quarterback Tarvaris Jackson had a pretty uneven game, finishing 14-for-30 with 144 passing yards, two touchdowns and an interception. The interception was Seattle's only turnover. Jackson's touchdown passes were to Lynch and a 15 yard pass to Golden Tate early in the fourth quarter that would prove to be the final Seahawks score of the game. That catch resulted in Tate's only yardage in the game. Doug Baldwin led all Seattle receivers with 60 yards on five catches.
