Check out more from The Post on Washington’s big road win over Seattle, plus other stories from around the NFL:
Washington holds off Seattle on final drive to win, 17-14: Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson’s Hail Mary pass attempt fell incomplete as time expired, giving the Redskins a critical road victory. They improve to 4-4 on the season, while the Seahawks drop to 5-3.
Redskins take 17-14 lead with 0:59 remaining: Washington drove 70 yards on four plays in 35 seconds to take a 17-14 lead with less than a minute to go in the game. Josh Doctson made a diving 38-yard catch along the left sideline, setting up the Redskins inside the one-yard line, and Rob Kelley scored on a one-yard touchdown run to put the Redskins ahead.
Seahawks take 14-10 lead on Russell Wilson touchdown pass with 1:34 left in fourth quarter: Seattle took over possession with just over two minutes remaining in the game, and Wilson connected with Doug Baldwin on a 30-yard touchdown pass to take the lead. The drive went 71 yards on five plays. Wilson’s two-point conversion attempt was incomplete.
Washington offense stalls, while Kirk Cousins narrowly avoids losing a fumble for a touchdown: Following Seattle’s touchdown drive, Washington needed a response from its offense, and it couldn’t even get a first down. Kirk Cousins has been sacked five times, including twice on the drive — the second of which resulted in an apparent fumble by Cousins that was recovered by the Seahawks in the end zone, before the call was overturned and Cousins was ruled down.
Yes, Washington is playing without four its of starting offensive linemen, but Cousins has been holding on to the ball for far too long. These sacks have resulted in 48 yards lost by Washington’s offense.
Seahawks cut into Redskins’ lead with touchdown, but fail two-point conversion: The Redskins’ lead is now 10-8 following a Seahawks touchdown drive, which was finished off with a 10-yard TD pass from Russell Wilson to tight end Luke Willson. Wilson was then intercepted on a two-point conversion attempt by Redskins safety D.J. Swearinger, who brought the return into Seahawks territory before lateraling to cornerback Josh Norman, who was eventually tackled. Had Washington returned the interception all the way to the end zone, it would have counted as a two-point conversion for the Redskins.
Will Compton interception ends promising Seahawks drive: Seattle finally appeared to be gaining some momentum on offense with its second drive of the second half, but Redskins linebacker Will Compton came away with an interception to give the ball back to Washington.
Compton hasn’t been used much this season as a backup inside linebacker, but Washington has had to rely on him as of late after Mason Foster was placed on injured reserve last week. His interception of Wilson was huge, even though the Redskins weren’t able to turn it into points. The Redskins had to punt, but they flipped the field. Points have come at a premium in this game, and with Seattle’s offensive and kicking woes so far, field position will play a significant factor throughout the rest of the game.
Washington extends lead to 10-2 early in third quarter: Nick Rose made a 28-yard field goal with 10:19 remaining in the third quarter to make the Redskins’ lead over Seattle 10-2.
The Redskins take a 7-2 lead into halftime: The Redskins somehow — we repeat, somehow — have the lead at halftime. Their offense finally put together a scoring drive — a 13-play, 67-yard drive that ended on Rob Kelley’s one-yard touchdown run, giving the team a 7-2 lead. Sure, the Redskins have caught some breaks, but give credit to the defense. It has been able to keep Washington in the game with a scoreless first half.
Yes, Seahawks kicker Blair Walsh has missed three field goals, including one as time expired in the first half, but Washington’s defense has been able to contain Russell Wilson and Seattle’s offense through 30 minutes.
Seattle kicker Blair Walsh misses second field goal of the game: Washington caught a break in the second quarter as Walsh missed his second field goal attempt of the game, keeping the score at 2-0.
Fuller intercepts a pass from Russell Wilson: Cornerback Kendall Fuller has been having an outstanding season. He’s displayed a level of confidence this season that we didn’t see during his rookie year. It was evident during Fuller’s interception of Wilson in the first quarter. Fuller broke on the slant route and made a spectacular play on the ball.
The Redskins’ drive stalled, leading to a punt. Seattle continues to lead Washington 2-0 in the second quarter.
Seahawks take an early 2-0 lead: The Redskins have had two dreadful offensive possessions in the first quarter. Rookie running back Samaje Perine fumbled on the second series, which was recovered by the Seahawks. It’s the 10th fumble lost by Washington, which leads the league.
While Seattle wasn’t able to turn that into points, quarterback Kirk Cousins was sacked by linebacker Bobby Wagner in the end zone for a safety on the first play of the next drive. Cousins pump-faked to his right and looked over to left to see Wagner unblocked as he was taken to the ground.
The Seahawks received the free kick following the safety and drove downfield, but kicker Blair Walsh missed a field goal, keeping the score at 2-0.
Quick serves as third wide receiver, with Pryor the fourth wideout: The Redskins have wanted to get Brian Quick more snaps over the last few weeks, but they haven’t had the opportunity to do so. With Jamison Crowder out, Washington incorporated a number of three-receiver sets using Quick, Josh Doctson and Ryan Grant. It appears Terrelle Pryor Sr. will be the team’s fourth wide receiver in this game. Quick had a reception for six yards on the first drive.

A mind-boggling 13 players appeared on the Redskins’ injury report entering Sunday. Tight ends Jordan Reed and Niles Paul have been ruled out. On the offensive line, Shawn Lauvao, Spencer Long and Trent Williams are all out as well. Ty Nsekhe was listed as doubtful heading into the game. Here’s a look at the full inactive list and their replacements.
But other Redskins could miss the game still, since Washington can only designate seven players as inactive.
Brandon Scherff was questionable and will be a game-time decision. During warm-ups, Tyler Catalina was working with the starters at right guard.
Running back Rob Kelley is questionable with an ankle injury. And that’s just one side of the ball.
Cornerback Bashaud Breeland (knee, groin), safety Montae Nicholson (shoulder) and linebacker Martrell Spaight (shoulder) are all questionable.
Washington will get a slight reprieve, as Seattle’s daunting defense will not be quite 100-percent. Safety Earl Thomas will miss the game due to a hamstring injury.
