Shortly after 1:30 p.m. Monday, the Washington Redskins issued the following statement:
The Washington Redskins announced today tickets to the NFC Wild Card Weekend playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, Jan. 6 are sold out. In the event there are player or visitor team ticket returns, fans are encouraged to check with Ticketmaster for availability.
Kickoff is scheduled for 4:30 p.m. Fans are encouraged to arrive early to avoid traffic and enjoy the 1 p.m. playoff games.
The Redskins have copped a lot of flak over the years for various season ticket and attendance-counting shenanigans, but we have no doubt that Sunday afternoon, just like Sunday night, will see a truly full house for FedEx Field's first NFL playoff game since the 1999 season.
