The Washington Redskins went on the road into a tough environment and took it to the Seattle Seahawks. Washington was winning this game for most of the contest but eventually lost the lead to Pete Carroll’s team in the 4th quarter. That’s when Rob Kelley scored the game winning touchdown with just under one minute remaining which would settle the score once and for all. Kirk Cousins made some big throws late and willed this team all the way down to the Seahawks goal line. Cousins ended up finishing with 247 yards, 0 touchdowns, and 0 interceptions. While Rob Kelley was able to punch in 2 touchdowns for the Redskins rushing attack. Vernon Davis was Washington’s top receiver he hauled in 72 receiving yards. Overall it wasn’t the best day offensively for Jay Gruden’s team but give this franchise credit for doing enough to get the win. Russell Wilson had a decent day for the Seahawks he threw for 297 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 2 interceptions. Wilson was also the top rusher for this squad churning out 77 yards on the ground. Doug Baldwin continued to show he is a marquee player in the Nation Football League he had a big day recording 108 receiving yards and 1 touchdown. On the defensive side of things the Redskins were really tough. Zach Brown anchored the middle for Washington he went for 11 tackles and 1 sack. Will Compton had a big night too he had 8 tackles and 1 interception. Bobby Wagner was the most impressive defender for the Seahawks he added 12 tackles and 1 sack for his team. Dwight Freeney was extreme tough in his return to pro football as well he was a force with 2 tackles and 2 sacks. The Redskins needed this win to set the tone for the rest of the season. This momentum will carry over into the following weeks and it will give Cousins and the rest of the guys in that locker room confidence moving forward.
