Seattle's Russell Wilson outdueled Robert Griffin III in the celebrated clash of outstanding rookie quarterbacks, but the dynamic Redskins' signal caller was hampered by a knee injury and forced to leave the game in the fourth quarter.
After a pair of four-yard touchdown passes by Griffin on Washington's first two possessions, Seattle's defense shut them down the rest of the way and Wilson brought the Seahawks back to 14-13 by halftime and added 11 points in the fourth quarter for the victory.
It was the first road playoff victory for the Seahawks in 30 years and propelled them to a divisional round clash against the NFC South champion Atlanta Falcons on Jan. 13. (Reporting by Ros Krasny, writing by Larry Fine in New York, Editing by ......)
