WASHINGTON, January 5, 2013 - Washington DC and the general metro area are awash in burgandy and gold as the Redskins prepare to challenge the Seattle Seahawks in the first playoff game contest since 1999.
As fans at subshops throughout the region are spontaneously bursting into song as they prepare for the big , the Redskins will take on the Seattle Seahawks at 4:30 p.m. ET at FedEx Field.
Seattle Washington Seahawks (2.5) at Washington Redskins: 4:30p.m. EST.
Predicition: Seahawks cover
Play by Play:
Rookies Russell Wilson and Robert Griffin III have lit up the league. RGIII is not completely healthy from his leg injury, and Seattle has the better defense. Pete Carroll has seen his squad explode from a
7-5 team to 4 straight wins and 1/2 game short of the division crown and 1st round bye. Washington began 3-6 but Mike Shanahan has seen his team win 7 straight. Despite Washington being at home, Seattle has just been playing lights out defense in recent weeks. They should be able to get another win.
If the Redskins win, they are up against the San Francisco 49ers next week. If the Seahawks win, they face the Atlanta Falcons next week.
The Chat begins at 4:15 p.m. EST and add our own arm-chair comments and predictions to the conversation.
