FedEx Field - Stephen Davis ran for 142 yards and a touchdown as the Redskins easily beat Seattle.
Washington jumped on top on its first possession. Davis runs of 12 and 11 yards keyed a nine-play, 71-yard drive that culminated in a seven-yard touchdown pass from Tony Banks to tight end Walter Rasby. The Seahawks drew even midway through the opening period when Shaun Alexander found a hole up the middle and scooted 41 yards over the goal line.
It was the Redskins’ game after that as they scored 20 unanswered points. A pair of interceptions, one by Champ Bailey, the other by David Terrell, set up Brett Conway field goals of 43 and 23 yards to give Washington a 13-7 lead.
Later in the second quarter the Redskins moved to the Seattle 44 on a few short Banks passes. From there, Davis carried eight straight times, finally bashing over the goal line from a yard out with five and a half minutes left in the second.
“All week, people were saying, ‘You can't run the ball on these guys,’” Davis said. “We proved them wrong.”
Conway’s conversion pushed the Redskin lead to 20-7 at halftime. They wrapped it up midway through the third with a 69-yard touchdown drive. This one was manufactured on the legs of, not Davis, but Banks. The QB scrambled for gains of 17 and 15 yards to key the drive. Banks finished off the march, and the Seahawks, with a 13-yard touchdown pass to Michael Westbrook.
