Seahawks vs. Redskins 2013: NFC Wild Card playoffs game preview

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

The Redskins will be in a playoff game on Sunday for the first time in nearly a decade as they face off against the Seattle Seahawks.

On Sunday afternoon, the Washington Redskins will play host to the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC Wild Card round.

Washington is rolling like few others in the NFL, winning seven-straight games to earn the No. 4 seed and the NFC East crown.

The Redskins have been led by a pair of rookies on the offensive side with Robert Griffin III and Alfred Morris. Morris set the franchise all-time single season rushing record with over 1,600 yards while Griffin has proven to be the duel threat many expected him to be.

Seattle comes in as the No. 5 seed but is certainly no slouch, touting an 11-5 mark and a five-game winning streak of its own led by their own rookie quarterback, Russell Wilson.

However, the Seahawks have been susceptible on the road, holding only a 3-5 record away from the great Northwest. Expect a tough running attack from Seattle, with Marshawn Lynch leading the way. The ex-Buffalo Bill has 1,590 yards this year on 5.0 yards per carry.
