The upside: Even the worst defeats tend to feature a bright spot or two.
Marshawn Lynch reached 100 yards rushing for the third time in his last four games.
Strong safety Kam Chancellor delivered a big hit early in the game, an indication recent fines have not diminished his aggressiveness.
Lynch and second-year receiver Golden Tate caught touchdown passes.
Leon Washington had 51- and 35-yard kickoff returns.
Seattle held the Redskins to 30 percent conversions on third down and one touchdown in three red zone possessions.
Red Bryant blocked a field goal attempt and an extra point attempt.
Seattle did not fumble and won the turnover battle.
Looking ahead: The Seahawks face the Philadelphia Eagles at home on Thursday night.
