Washington shows its resolve by toppling Seahawks on road

SEATTLE (AP) Jay Gruden did what coaches rarely do in the regular season and acknowledged this Washington victory had more significance.

"This is pretty high, to be honest with you. Especially with where we are as a team," Gruden said. "We were 3-4, it's hard if we jump down to 3-5. We have to somehow keep pace, we can't get too far behind or the season will leak out on us."

The Redskins did what few teams have accomplished on Sunday, coming into Seattle and rallying in the final moments to stun the Seahawks 17-14. Washington became the first team outside the NFC West to win in Seattle since Carolina during the 2015 season, and one of three non-NFC West teams to beat the Seahawks on their home field since the start of the 2012 season.
