Rookie quarterbacks ROBERT GRIFFIN III of Washington and RUSSELL WILSON of Seattle lead their teams into the playoffs. Griffin (102.4) and Wilson (100.0) are the only rookie quarterbacks in NFL history to post a 100.0+ passer rating.
Both rookie QBs have been complemented by strong running games. For the Redskins, rookie running back ALFRED MORRIS finished second in the NFL with a team-record 1,613 rushing yards. Seahawks running back MARSHAWN LYNCH ranked third in the league with 1,590 yards and was selected to his second Pro Bowl (first with Seattle).
Seattle and Washington enter the postseason as two of the hottest teams in the league. The Seahawks have won five in a row and seven of their past eight while the Redskins are riding a seven-game winning streak and are the fifth team in NFL history to make th...

AROUND THE WEB
The auditorium is usually reserved for coach Pete Carroll during the season and the occasional first-round draft pick being introduced in the spring.
After months of standing behind a small circular table and in front of a makeshift cereal box-shaped backdrop, Seattle rookie quarterback Russell Wilson got the auditorium on Thursday, with the big podium, the microphone stands and...
Sunday afternoon NFL fans get the rookie match up they’ve been looking for: Russell Wilson leads the Seattle Seahawks into Washington to face Robert Griffin III and the Redskins. 2012 NFL Draft pick No. 75 versus pick No. 2. The first playoff clash for perhaps the greatest rookie quarterback class ever.
But no team gets to the playoffs without help. Family, friends and support...
What will it take?
Now that the Seahawks have made the playoffs as the 5th seed in the NFC, they are set to travel to Landover, Maryland to take on the Washington Redskins.
The question has been posed, “What would be a disappointing playoff run?”
Before I get into that, let’s take a look at what the 2012 Seahawks football team has accomplished this season.
6th best record...
The NFL playoffs have finally arrived and only a few short weeks remain until we can crown a world champion. For now we have wild card weekend to look forward to, and the most enticing game for fans whose team didn’t make the big dance, is Sundays matchup between the Seattle Seahawks and Washington Redskins. Both teams sport shining rookie quarterbacks, top of the league running...
The opponents for all 2013 regular-season games have been determined and a complete list of each team’s home and away matchups was issued today by the NFL. The scheduling formula implemented in 2002 with realignment guarantees that all teams play each other on a regular, rotating basis. Under the formula, every team plays 16 games as follows: Home and away against its three division...
Happy New Year 12′s!
So, you woke up yesterday morning a little worse for the wear after overindulging in the New Year’s celebrations with too much Red Hook ESB drained from your giant novelty Seahawks tumbler glass, while drunkenly bragging of once seeing Russell Wilson hanging out at Red Mill burger on North 67th.
It’s the holidays and everyone’s in the mood...
In April 2012, the Washington Redskins took a risk and traded up to draft Robert Griffin III of Baylor as the second overall pick in the NFL Draft. The Redskins brought in Griffin to be the savior. He was the future of a franchise that was completely void of a consistent quarterback. Expectations were high and the stakes were higher. This was a boom or bust draft pick for everyone...
Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman says he's not afraid to face Washington Redskins' wide receivers, and he shouldn't be.
"None of them," Sherman told USA TODAY Sports.
The Redskins top three receivers are Pierre Garcon, Santana Moss and Leonard Hankerson. Garcon leads the Redskins in receiving yards with 633, while Moss leads the team with eight...
8-0 at home, undefeated since November 25th, scoring a combined 170 points in the last four games, Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks are flying higher than they have in years. Maybe it’s due to their aggressive yet smart defense led by Earl Thomas, maybe it is the roaring 12th Man for which they perform, maybe it’s their rookie quarterback that is “too short” to be...
In the NFC Division Wildcard, you must account for the Seattle Seahawks’ MEAT.
I know it’s not the flashiest thing to talk about. I will concede that it’s easier to talk about Robert Griffin III and Russell Wilson (because we all know flashy quarterbacks win playoff games1). Hell, ESPN has virtually made it a quarterback combine competition. At this point I’m surprised that...
The NFL awards season is nearing, and the debate for who deserves what is heating up. Of particular note this season in the three-legged race (OK, six-legged) that developed for the 2012 Rookie of the Year.
However, while an individual accolade might be nice at the end of the season, a trio of rookie quarterbacks remain in the hunt for something much bigger.
Andrew Luck, Robert...

Headline: NFC Wild Card Showdown – Seahawks Head to Washington for Potential Classic
In what could be the game of the weekend, the Seattle Seahawks head out on the road to take on the Washington Redskins in a battle of the Super Rookies. Russell Wilson and Robert Griffin III will capture all of the headlines ahead of Sunday’s clash and rightfully...
(Eds: Updates. With AP Photos.) By JOSEPH WHITE AP Sports Writer At the midpoint of the season, the Washington Redskins were on pace to become the worst pass defense in NFL history, the first to give up 5,000 yards through the air.
Needless to say, Jim Haslett's stock was a bit low at the time. When head coach Mike Shanahan was asked if there would be any midseason changes to...
