Landover, MD (Sports Network) - Marshawn Lynch rushed for 132 yards and the go-ahead touchdown midway through the fourth quarter as the Seattle Seahawks overcame a fast start by the Washington Redskins with a 24-14 victory in Sunday's NFC Wild Card playoff.
Washington was hosting its first playoff game since 1999 and jumped out to an early 14-0 lead, but the Seahawks scored the final 24 points of the contest to advance to next Sunday's divisional playoff game against the Atlanta Falcons.
Russell Wilson outplayed fellow Rookie of the Year candidate Robert Griffin III by completing 15-of-26 passes for 187 yards and a touchdown while adding 67 yards on eight carries for the Seahawks, who entered the game riding a five-game win streak.
Griffin was held to just 84 yards with a pair of touchdowns and an interception on 10-for-19 efficiency by the NFL's second-ranked defense before leaving the game in the fourth quarter with a knee injury he suffered in the first quarter.
The hobbled quarterback also managed just 21 yards on five carries.
Alfred Morris followed his 200-yard, three-touchdown performance against the Dallas Cowboys, which clinched the Redskins' first NFC East crown in 13 years, with 80 yards on 16 carries.
Washington has now been knocked out of the playoffs by the Seahawks in their last three postseason appearances, having lost to the team in the 2005 divisional round and the 2007 Wild Card round.
