It took 30 years, but the Seahawks finally won a road playoff game. The Redskins not only lost the game Sunday, they also lost rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III to another knee injury in the fourth quarter.

With "RG3" and Andrew Luck of the Indianapolis Colts now out of the picture, Russell Wilson is the last rookie quarterback standing in the NFL playoffs.

Wilson completed 15 of 26 passes for 187 yards and ran eight times for 67 yards for the Seahawks, who broke an eight-game postseason losing streak away from home. Marshawn Lynch ran for 132 yards.

Seattle will visit the top-seeded Atlanta Falcons next Sunday.
