Seahawks surrender 4th quarter comeback; lose to Washington 23-17

Rex Grossman found Anthony Armstrong for a 50-yard touchdown and the Redskins rallied for 16 fourth-quarter points and stunned the Seahawks 23-17 on Sunday.

One play after committing a grounding penalty, Grossman stepped up in the pocket on third-and-19 and found Armstrong, who out maneuvered Seattle cornerback Brandon Browner for the pass in the corner of the end zone.

Washington’s defense then held Seattle twice in the final 6 minutes, the last time when Seattle QB Tarvaris Jackson failed to get rid of the ball against a blitz on fourth-and-5 at his 23 with 2:07 left.

Marshawn Lynch rushed for 111 yards and caught a 20-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter, but Seattle saw its chance at the first three-game win streak under coach Pete Carroll crumble under too many mistakes.

Jackson was 14 of 30 for 144 yards and was intercepted in the final minute by DeAngelo Hall. Seattle also committed nine penalties.

Next: Thursday December 1 vs. Philadelphia Eagles, 5:20 PT.
