The Washington Redskins have snapped a four-game losing streak with a 27-20 victory against the Seattle Seahawks. Washington avoided disaster late in the game with a successful fourth down running play deep in its own territory. The Redskins continued to drive down the field as quarterback Patrick Ramsey completed long passes to his reliable targets, Rod Gardner and Laveranues Coles. Gardner turned quarterback on a trick play and threw the winning touchdown strike to running back Trung Canidate.

Fred Taylor ran 32 yards for a touchdown to give the Jacksonville Jaguars a first-ever victory over the Indianapolis Colts, 28-23.
