LANDOVER, Md. (CBSDC) — The Washington Redskins weren’t quite the same after Robert Griffin III limped off the field in the first half.
In their first home playoff game since the 1999 season, Washington jumped out early and lead the Seattle Seahawks 14-13 at halftime.
As Russell Wilson guided the Seahawks to their first points of the afternoon, trainers attended to Griffin in an examination booth directly behind the Washington bench.
He reemerged, began tossing passes on the sideline and did not miss a play. However, the momentum had shifted by the time he returned and the offense would not return to form.
The double-digit lead quickly evaporated as the frenzied, capacity crowd grew hushed as Seattle came surging back to cut the lead to one.
Griffin finished the half 6-of-11 for 68 yards with an interception to go with the scores — good for a 75.0 passer rating.
Counterpart Alfred Morris carried the ball 11 times for 60 yards.
NOTE: Seattle place kicker Steven Hauschka suffered an ankle injury and missed a kickoff, but was able to connect on a 29-yard field goal as the second quarter expired.
