  • The Washington Redskins one-upped the Seattle Seahawks in comebacks on Sunday and left CenturyLink Field with a 17-14 victory.

    Quarterbacks Russell Wilson of Seattle and Kirk Cousins of Washington traded scoring drives, but Cousins got the last one, and time ran out on the Seahawks as they tried to respond.

    Cousins hit on 21 of 31 pass attempts for 247 yards with no touchdowns and no intereceptions.

    Wilson finished 24 of 45 passing for 297 yards and two touchdowns, with two interceptions. He also was Seattle's leading rusher, with 77 net yards on 10 carries.

    at its 29-yard with 2:22 left, down 10-8. A Wilson 21-yard pass to tight end Jimmy Graham moved the Seahawks to the opposing 41. Wilson then scramble to the 31, and on the next play he found receiver Doug Baldwin open for a TD pass with 1:34 remaining.

    Cousins connected on two big pass plays that got the Redskins to the Seattle 1, the second completion going for 38 yards to Josh Doctson.

    On the next play, Rob Kelley ran off left guard and into the end zone to put Washington in front 17-14 with 59 seconds to go.

    Seattle drove to the Washington 38, but then Wilson was sacked and the clock was down to four seconds. Wilson's Hail Mary to the back of the end zone nearly worked, but the Redskins were able to keep the ball away from two Seattle receivers as time expired.MICHAEL WORKMAN PHOTO - Seattle coach Pete Carroll gets into a serious mood on the sideline.

    Seattle had 16 penalties and went 0 for 3 on field-goal attempts by Blair Walsh, all in the first half.

    The Seahawks' next game is 5:25 p.m. Thursday at NFC West rival Arizona (4-4).
