Seahawks 20 Redskins 10

The Redskins season ends with a 20-10 divisional playoff loss at Seattle.. The Seahawks are the number one seed in the playoffs.. Joe Gibbs falls to 17-6 overall, and 0-4 in the second game of back to back road playoff games in the same postseason..

Washington started the season 3-0 including a win over Seattle where the team lost the turnover battle each game.. Saturday the Skins won the turnover battle 3-1 but lost the game.. Washington got fumble reoveries on a muffed punt and a fumbled kick off but turned those turnovers into just 3 points..

Their offense struggled for the third straight wee, they gained only 74 yards in the first half, but finished the game with 289.. Clinton Portis was held to 41 yards on 17 carries.. At one point, back up center Cory Raymer was playing right guard for Ray Brown who was taken to the locker room for cramps.. he did return and finished the game.. Brown announced afterward he is retiring after 20 seasons in the NFL..

WR taylor Jacobs left the game with an illness but returned.. CB Shawn Springs left the game with cramps but returned.. PR Antonio Brown had the wind knocked out of him but returned..
DT Cornelious Griffin injured his right knee in the 4th quarter, it is a sprain, he says he doesn't believe it is very serious.. The team gave no official report..

Seattle RB Shawn Alexander left in the first quarter after suffering a concussion, he did not return.. Maurice morris rushed for 49 yards on 18 carries, Mack Strong had the longest run of his career, a 32 yarder on a 3rd and six in the fourth that led to the game clinching field goal..

WR Darrell jackson left the game early with a back injury but returned to grab a game high 9 balls for 143 yards and a touchdown.. All the other Seattle WR's ended up with 7 catches 72 yards..
WR Santana Moss had 7 catches for 103 yards and a touchdown that went through the hands of CB Andre Dyson..
Mark Brunnell ended up 22-37 242 yards, 1 TD, no INT, sacked twice..

The locker room was pretty positive in the face of defeat, numerous players saying they hope the unit remains in tact, DT Joe Salave'a was among those saying he wants to return, that he doesn't want to play anywhere else.. Joe Gibbs said it is his intent to keep the group together as best as possible.. I will do a detailed salary structure review for you later in the week..

Marcus Washington said he thought the team was going to win when they got off the bus, that he was very dissapointed that the season ended.. In general, the modd was relatively positive most players poitning to the character and work ethic of this team as a sign that good things are to come..

Washington had it's first 6 game win streak since 1996.. This was the first ever postseason meeting between the Seahawks and redskins and it was Seattle's first postseaosn victory over anyone since 1984..

Kudos to the Redskins for getting to the 2nd round of the plafoffs..A win would have been nice, we had some chances but we did not take advantage of them and Seattle was the winner. I'm not sure who the starting QB will be next year but if Brunell is ( with all due respect) that would be a step in the wrong direction. Brunell played a very gutsy year and game while banged up. Brunell was not himself again. A lot of Brunell's passe's were sailing high. If they are going to ship Ramsey out Get The rookie Jason ready to take over the team..
