The Seattle Seahawks finally won a road playoff game Sunday, taking a 24-14 NFC wild-card victory over the Washington Redskins, who lost Robert Griffin III to another knee injury in the fourth quarter.
Marshawn Lynch ran for 131 yards, and Russell Wilson completed 15-of-26 passes for 187 yards and ran eight times for 67 yards for the Seahawks, who broke an eight-game postseason losing streak away from home.

Lynch's 27-yard run with 7:08 remaining gave the Seahawks (12-5) the lead. On Washington's next series, Griffin re-injured the right knee he sprained about a month ago while trying to field a bad shotgun snap.

Kirk Cousins replaced Griffin, but Washington (10-7) was unable to come back.
RG III three two 4-yard touchdown passes in his first career playoff game to give the Redskins a 14-0 lead before the Seahawks closed to 14-13 through three quarters.
The Seahawks allowed 15.3 points per game this season, and the 14-point deficit was their largest of the season.
Hauschka's 32-yard field goal 2:55 into the second quarter made in 14-3, and his second kick, a 29-yarder as the half expired, pulled the Seahawks with a point.
