Grossman, Helu help Redskins rip Seahawks 23-17

Rex Grossman found Anthony Armstrong for a 50-yard touchdown and the Redskins rallied for 16 fourth-quarter points and stunned the Seahawks 23-17 on Sunday.

One play after committing a grounding penalty, Grossman stepped up in the pocket on third-and-19 and found Armstrong, who out maneuvered Seattle cornerback Brandon Browner for the pass in the corner of the end zone.

The touchdown pass was Grossman’s second of the game and followed rookie Roy Helu’s leaping 28-yard TD run (first NFL score on the ground) that pulled the Redskins within 17-14.

Grossman finished 26 of 35 for 314 yards as Washington (4-7) snapped its six-game losing streak.

Helu had 23 rushes for 108 yards and led the team with seven receptions on 54 yards.

Next: Sunday December 4 vs. New York Jets, 1 ET.
