Seahawks vs. Redskins score: Seattle kicks field goal, down 14-3

A stalled drive hasn't been enough to pull within a score.

The Seattle Seahawks are finally on the board -- but with only three points they have plenty of ground to make up. The Washington Redskins now lead 14-3 in Sunday's Wild Card playoff game.

A 12-play, 66 yard drive stalled in the red zone, where Russell Wilson was unable to find an open receiver for a touchdown. An impressive catch by Sidney Rice put them in good position, but couldn't be capitalized on. This resulted in several throw-aways, and finishing in a Steve Haushka field goal.

Controlling both lines of scrimmage allowed the Redskins to jump out to an early 14-0 lead on the back of two Robert Griffin III touchdowns. Accuracy through the air, paired with successful running on the ground made it look like the NFC's second Wild Card game would be over by halftime. However, just as he's done so many times before Russell Wilson has pulled the Seahawks back into contention.

With just over ten minutes remaining in the first half, the Redskins will now have another chance to add to their lead.
