The Seattle Seahawks built a 17-point lead and held on for a 20-15 victory to snap the Washington Football Team's four-game winning streak Sunday at FedExField in Landover, Md.

Despite the loss, Washington (6-8) maintains a one-game lead over New York (5-9) for the NFC East lead following the Giants' loss to Cleveland on Sunday night. Dallas (5-9) is also one game back.

Seattle (10-4) moved a game ahead of the Los Angeles Rams (9-5) for the top spot in the NFC West.

Washington hosts Carolina (4-10) on Dec. 27 before closing out the regular season at Philadelphia (4-9-1) on Jan. 3.
