Though the headlines tomorrow may focus on the loss of Robert Griffin III, not enough can be said about Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks. Following a 14-0 first quarter, Wilson led his offense to 24 unanswered points and a trip to Atlanta to face the Falcons next week.

Griffin was visibly affected by his sprained knee, and his 84 passing yards are evidence that it affected more than just his running ability.

Washington's defense put up an admirable fight, the lack of offense had them fighting a losing battle. They couldn't keep Marshawn Lynch from rumbling for 132 yards and a touchdown, or Wilson from throwing and running for 254 combined yards.

The Redskins end their season on a somber note, while the Seahawks prove to be the hotter team, one that very few opponents wanted to see advance this week.

Final Score: Redskins 14, Seahawks 24
