PICKING THE NFL WILD CARD WINNERS
Redskins vs. Seahawks
Game details: Star rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III and the 10-6 Washington Redskins will play the 11-5 Seattle Seahawks on Sunday at 4:30 p.m. (FOX). RG3 has been on fire, leading the Redskins to a 7-game winning streak heading into the playoffs. The Seahawks are also flying high, winning 7 of their last 8 games.
They said it: Redskins’ head coach Mike Shanahan said a balanced offense is what he’s aiming for during the playoffs. “A lot of teams have been very successful the past five, six years not having a great running game, but usually good enough. It’s always been my philosophy to have a balanced offense. When bad weather occurs, you’re able to have a little more balance.”
