Last week for the Redskins was the Biggest Sunday of All Sundays and they passed that test to take down the NFC East crown. They now move on to face the Seattle Seahawks — an equally hot team and one who has bumped them from their previous two playoffs — in a 4:30 home match-up at FedEx field.
It is prediction time. We are gathering our staff of writers and getting everyone’s score predictions for the game. Keep in mind that while this is a DMV sports site, not all writers are Redskins fans. The majority however are indeed Skins fans, some of which are realists while others are blinding homers lol.
Seattle is favored by 3, but will not have as big advantage is they would if this was a home game for them. Washington is riding a 7 game winning streak into this game, and the Seahawks have their own 5 game winning streak. A good deal of the main stream media is going with Seattle.
With that being said, here are our predictions:
- Trevor Morton (die hard Redskins fan):
-Kai Forbath with a 45 yard game winner. Redskins win 31 – 28
- Bill Thompson (Redskins fan):
-Redskins win 32 – 28
- Miles Horton (Cowboys fan):
-Seattle’s defense has enough speed to counteract RGIII. Seahawks win 24 – 13.
-Skins take them down and advance. Redskins 31 – 21.
- Adam Banig (Redskins fan):
This is Washington’s TIME!! Redskins 24 – Seahawks 20
- Cory Grubbs (Bengals fan and Ravens writer):
-High scoring 1st half, but the NFL’s #1 defense steps up and stops the Redskins game winning drive with an interception. Seahawks win 31 – 27.
- Asad Naqvi (Redskins fan):
-Skins victory: 27 – 23
-Pierre Garcon grabs 2 TDs on the way to a Washington victory. Redskins win 27 – 17.
- Derek Goode (Redskins fan, not as much of a homer as Chris Jenkins):
-A close one but the Skins pull it out 30 – 26.
- Josh Stendeback (Redskins fan):
-RGIII throws for 225 and 2 TDs, Morris goes for 135 yards and 2 TDs. Lynch is held to 94 yards, 1 TD. Skins win 34 – 31.
- John Byrnes (Redskins fan):
-Redskins pull out a close game 23 – 17.
- Trevor Jackson (sad Wizards fan……oh and Redskins fan):
Another game that comes down to the wire, the Skins rookies get it done when it matters. Redskins win 27- 24.
For those keeping count, that is 10 votes for a Redskins win to 2 for the Seahawks. Predictably, the non-Redskins fans account for the Seahawks votes, so maybe there is a bit more homerism than I thought on this site! I for one am hoping that all these Redskins votes turn out to be correct by time the clock hits zero.
Hail to the Redskins!! Is it Sunday yet?
