LANDOVER, Md. - The Washington Redskins are NFC East champions.

Robert Griffin III, wearing a heavy black brace on his mildly sprained right knee, ran for a touchdown, and fellow rookie Alfred Morris rushed for 200 yards and three scores on Sunday night as the Redskins won their first division title in 13 years by beating the Dallas Cowboys, 28-18.

The Redskins are 10-6 and will host the Seattle Seahawks next Sunday, having won seven straight since their bye week. Washington is the first NFL team to rally from 3-6 to make the postseason since the Jacksonville Jaguars in 1996.

The Redskins would have been out of the postseason with a loss. Instead, the Cowboys will miss the playoffs for the third straight year. Dallas finished 8-8, stumbling in a do-or-die end-of-regular-season game for the third time in five years.
