The Seattle Seahawks earned their first road win in nearly 30 years, defeating the Washington Redskins 24-14 at FedEx Field in an NFC Wild Card game Sunday evening.

Seattle fell behind 14-0, but scored 24 answered points to claim the win. The Seahawks (12-5) will travel to the NFC’s No. 1 seed, Atlanta (13-3) on Sunday at 10 a.m. Pacific time.

Check out the final results here.

The last time Seattle won on the road was the AFC divisional playoffs at Miami, a 27-20 victory over the Dolphins on Dec. 31, 1983. The Seahawks fell to the Raiders 30-14 a week later in the AFC Championship.

The Seahawks had lost eight straight postseason games on the road since then.

Seattle got the go-ahead score with with just over seven minutes left, marching 79 yards on eight plays. Marshawn Lynch scored on a 27-yard touchdown run, atoning for a fumble on Washington’s 2-yard line earlier in the second half that would have given Seattle the lead.

Steven Hauschka added a 24-yard field goal to complete the scoring.

The Redskins (10-7) scored touchdowns on the first two drives of the game, piling up 129 yards offensively.

However, the Seattle’s defense toughened up, holding the Redskins to 74 yards the rest of the way.

Washington quarterback Robert Griffin III limped his way through the game on a gimpy right knee, and finally left with 6:19 left when his injured knee buckled while trying to pick up a bad snap. Griffin finished 10 of 19 for 84 yards, with two touchdown passes and one interception.

Lynch finished with 131 yards on 19 carries.

Seattle rookie quarterback Russell Wilson completed 15 of 26 passes for 187 yards, including a 4-yard touchdown pass to fullback Michael Robinson.

Wilson also rushed for 67 yards.
