The Washington Redskins clinched the National Football Conference-East division title Sunday night with a win over the Dallas Cowboys, 28-18.

The win secured Washington's playoff spot, their first sine 2007. It's the team's first NFC-East title since 1999. 

Quarterback Robert Griffin III passed for 100 yards and rushed for 63 yards with one touchdown. Alfred Morris picked up where Griffin left off throughout much of the game, with 200 yards and three touchdowns. Morris now holds the team's record for rushing in a single season. 

Washington will begin the playoffs with a matchup against the Seahawks next Sunday at FedEx Field.
