Redskins win the NFC East title for the second straight year with win over Seahawks

Redskins linebacker Ryan Kerrigan scored two touchdowns and cornerback Bashaud Breeland had another interception as the Redskins beat the Seattle Seahawks, 35-31.

In what was their best win of the season, the Redskins held the Seahawks to a season-low 17 points, including four turnovers.

“I don’t know if I’ve been able to play in this stadium in this long,” Kirk Cousins said.

“I’ve been in stadiums that are really, really good, but they’ve had the ability to be so physical and so physical in this building.

It’s a big win for us.”

Washington won 35-29.

Washington defeated the Seattle-based team 29-23 in the NFC title game last season.

Washington was down a man in the second quarter and couldn’t hold off a late rally by the Seahawks that put Seattle ahead 16-13.

Cousins had seven carries for 40 yards, including an 83-yard touchdown run.

But the Redskins were still unable to stop the Seahawks, who held them to a field goal and failed to score on the first three possessions.

Seattle’s Matt Prater scored on a 1-yard run with 1:12 remaining in the first quarter to cut the deficit to seven points.

But Kirk Cousins scored on the Redskins first three offensive plays to cut it to 15 points with 3:30 left in the half.

The Seahawks had no other scoring drives on the game.

The Seahawks led 13-6 entering the fourth quarter and held the Redskins to five points.

The Redskins, who lost the NFC West title game in Washington to the Seattle SuperSonics last season, rallied for the win on a 21-yard field goal by Prater with 3 seconds left.

After the Redskins trailed 28-23 with 6:51 remaining, Cousins completed a 16-yard pass to Kam Chancellor, who broke off a 24-yard scoring run with 3 minutes remaining.

Cousins then went deep on a 3-yard play to give Washington a 27-20 lead.

The two teams traded punts before Cousins scored again on a 14-yard drive to give the Redskins a 35-28 lead with 7:35 left in regulation.

Seahawks cornerback Bashaux Brooks intercepted Cousins in the end zone to tie the game at 34.

Cousins completed 18 of 23 passes for 237 yards and two touchdowns as the Seahawks won their second straight game.

He also had four catches for 88 yards and a touchdown, which was the most by a Redskins receiver this season.

Seattle’s Luke Willson had two interceptions for the Seahawks.
