Rex Grossman tossed the go-ahead 50-yard touchdown pass to Anthony Armstrong in the fourth quarter, leading the Washington Redskins to a hard-fought 23-17 victory over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.

The Seahawks led 17-7 in the fourth quarter before a 28-yard run by Washington's Ray Helu made it 17-14. Then they went ahead with 6:18 left on a 50-yard touchdown pass from Grossman to Anthony Armstrong.

Grossman finished with 314 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions on 26- of-35 passing, while Roy Helu had a nice day on the ground, rushing for 108 yards and a score for the Redskins (4-7), who snapped a six-game losing streak.

Jabar Gaffney had five catches for 72 yards and Fred Davis hauled in five passes for 58 yards and a touchdown. Armstrong's touchdown catch was his only grab of the day.

Tarvaris Jackson threw for 144 yards, two touchdowns and one interception on 14-of-30 passing, while Marshawn Lynch ran for 111 yards on 24 carries for the Seahawks (4-7), who had their two-game winning streak halted.

Lynch also caught a touchdown pass, while Doug Baldwin had five grabs for 60 yards and Golden Tate caught a touchdown pass.

Red Bryant blocked a field goal and an extra point for the Seahawks, and kicker Steven Hauschka made one of two field goals. Receiver Sidney Rice suffered a head injury and was forced to leave the game early.
