Football Extra Points:
Does the Seattle or Washing rookie come out on top this week?
The Playoffs start this weekend and some teams will be one and done.
Here are this weekends winners and losers.
AFC Wild Card Game - #6 Bengals at #3 Texans
This is a very interesting game. The Bengals have been red hot headed into the playoffs and the Texans have been a disaster the last several weeks. At one point the Texans were the best team in the league, now they look like a mess. I picked the Texans to play in the Super Bowl before the season started, now I think they're done.
The Bengals defense and passing game take down the struggling Texans. Bengals win.
AFC Wild Card Game - #5 Colts at #3 Ravens
The Colts and Andrew Luck are the feel good story of the NFL this season. The Ravens continue to struggle on offense. The Ravens have the RB and WR to put up points, the problem is their QB isn't any good. Looking at the Ravens schedule they haven't beaten anyone this season.
I like whe...

“Might not have had all the hype and things...
This unidentified grocery store's attempt to make a Washington Redskins cake was a good effort, except for one small detail.
Unfortunately, it's the most critical detail of the cake: they misspelled the team name. Sorry, it's not spelled "Reskins".
Since the cake apparently hasn't been sold yet, maybe it can still be fixed. Or, maybe the...
At the beginning of the year, I didn’t believe Russell Wilson would become the starter in Seattle. I had Matt Flynn penciled in as Seattle Seahawks’ starter this season. Don’t get me wrong, I have always been a fan of Wilson, I just didn’t think he would be their guy right now. In my mind, I didn’t expect them to shy away from the man that they just signed over the offseason...
Talk about 9 inch nails. Pepper Cox might be the biggest Washington Redskins fan around. She started growing her fingernails 11 years ago and has painted them burgundy and gold every football season since
"Dan Snyder, I love him. I just wish sometimes he'd get a front line - I
need an offensive front line, but I love him," says Cox.
The Washington Redskins have restored cornerback Cedric Griffin to the 53-man roster in time for the playoffs after his four-game suspension for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances.
Coach Mike Shanahan said Friday that Griffin will be available for Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks.
Griffin's suspension ended Monday, and the coaching...
Redskins defensive tackle Kedric Golston told USA Today sports that Seahwaks cornerback Richard Sherman is a cheater for failing a drug test.Sherman responded to Golston’s comments by comparing himself to Jesus.“Everybody has haters…People think Jesus didn’t exist. They think he wasn’t a miracle worker,” said Sherman, per USA Today Sports via Black Sports Online. There...
Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III isn’t
included on the team’s injury report this week and linebacker London Fletcher
is probable to play today against the Seattle Seahawks, but offensive lineman
Kory Lichtensteiger is questionable to play with an ankle injury.
Fletcher missed practice on Wednesday and again on Friday as
he continues to be hampered by his...
Washington wideout Pierre Garcon was a full participant in practice this week and the foot injury will not keep him out of Sunday's first round playoff game.Fantasy Spin:Garcon has 16 catches for 200 yards over the past three games, but without getting into the end zone after scoring in three consecutive games from Week 12-14. The Redskins are a run-first offense, but Garcon...
On Thursday, we included 20 compelling reasons why you should hate the Washington Redskins. But just because you should hate the Redskins doesn’t mean you can’t also hate the Seattle Seahawks. Because there are many reasons to hate the Seahawks as well. There’s just so much hate to go around this time of year.
Pete Carroll is still a cheating asshole. “But...
I've been sick as a dog this week, and through all the vomiting and the groaning and the general misery this game has stood out like a bright, shining beacon on the horizon. The Seahawks and the playoffs, together again -- how great is that?
When the Hawks improbably clawed their way into the postseason in 2010 with a 7-9 record, all they did was pull off one of the most...
