Seahawks will stop Redskins
The Seahawks defense will suffocate the Redskins' running game, bottling up Alfred Morris and keeping Robert Griffin III in the pocket for Sunday's wild card game.
Look, if the Seahawks can shut down the 49ers' running game, the Redskins don't stand much of a chance either. This is playoff time, when players are doing their jobs with their utmost focus. The Seahawks have the cornerbacks in Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner to handle man-to-man coverage while Bobby Wagner and the gang can dedicate themselves to tracking down the two rookie of the year candidates.
Griffin III has certainly been astounding, but there's no escaping one of the best defenses in the NFL against both the run (No. 4 overall) and the pass (No. 6 overall). Add in a Seahawks offense that has put up 38.6 points per game in its last five games, and it'll be tough for the Redskins to keep the ground game going when they're playing catch up.
