THE TASTE OF VICTORY: So, here's an unfamiliar feeling for Redskins fans.

The scoreboard at the end of the 4th quarter of Sunday's game at CenturyLink Field said that the Washington Redskins had more points than the Seattle Seahawks.

We all kind of rubbed our eyes, asked the person next to us if we were hallucinating, then all let out the same, frenzied chant.

OK, so maybe Johnny Drama is a little bit much, but when you win for the first time since the second day of October, it can be relished for a little while.

Washington got 16 4th quarter points to rally from down 17-7 for their fourth win of 2011, including one heck of a throw from Rex Grossman to Anthony Armstrong and Roy Helu treating Seattle defender Roy Lewis as his personal high hurdle.

No, seriously, watch that again and again, for it was glorious.

Helu has emerged over the last few weeks as a tremendous threat on the ground and through the air, and if that athleticism doesn't prove that he can be a consistent contributor, we at Daybreak 5th Quarter headquarters don't know what will.

So savor this, Redskins fans. The Jets are in next week and they'll be hungry for a win to keep their playoff dreams intact.
