NFC Wild Card Thread: Seahawks vs. Redskins

Feel free to use this thread to discuss the Seahawks vs. Redskins NFC Wild Card playoff game.

Jonathan Ferrey

Three games down, and one game to go in NFL Wild Card weekend. With the Baltimore Ravens taking down the Indianapolis Colts 24-9, the exact same final four from the AFC last year will represent the conference in the Divisional Playoffs this year: the Ravens, Patriots, Texans, and Broncos.

The last game on the schedule this weekend features two red-hot NFC teams: the Seattle Seahawks and the NFC East Champion Washington Redskins.

On the field, I actually think that the Seahawks match-up pretty well with the Redskins. They have a stout run defense, and I don't think receivers such as Pierre Garcon, Santana Moss, and Josh Morgan are going to easily separate from those fierce Seattle cornerbacks. Then again, the Redskins do have RGIII on their side. They also have a ferocious home crowd to lean on as well - a crowd that hasn't seen a home playoff game since 1999.

This one is a coin flip. But because of my dislike for the arrogant, pompous Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman, I'm pulling for the Redskins. Plus, Seattle hasn't played very well on the road this year. Greg's Pick: Redskins 24 Seahawks 20
