AccuScore is back for the playoffs this week with some wacky statistical projections and predictions for today’s NFC Wild Card round game between the Washington Redskins and the Seattle Seahawks.

Last Sunday, AccuScore had the Redskins winning in 51 percent of its 10,000 computer simulations against the Dallas Cowboys. This time around, with two of the hottest teams in the league matching up against each other in the playoffs at FedExField, Washington has even more of a battle on its hands.

This week’s AccuScore projections have much to do with the rushing attack of the two teams. If either team is able to take advantage of their elusive quarterbacks — the Redskins’ Robert Griffin III and the Seahawks’ Russell Wilson — and match it with some hard running from their running backs — Alfred Morris for Washington and Marshawn Lynch for Seattle — then their odds of winning dramatically increase.

Here’s the highlights of today’s AccuScore predictions for Redskins-Seahawks, according to ESPN:

– Wilson is projected for 46 rushing yards and Lynch projected for 90.
– If Wilson and Lynch can out-rush Washington, then Seattle is 84-percent favorites.
– If Washington out-rushes Seattle, then they are 67-percent favorites.
– Both quarterbacks are averaging 210 passing yards at a 63-percent completion rate and 0.7 interceptions per simulation.
– When the Redskins win in simulations, Griffin III and Wilson have the same number of touchdown passes. When the Seahawks win in simulations, Wilson is averaging 1.7 touchdown passes to 1.1 for Griffin III.
– AccuScore is going with the Seahawks at 53 percent (5,300) out of 10,000 simulations.

    I really don’t want to make any predictions I’ll just say that we deserve this victory for all the valiant efforts this team has showed and steped up to .With a little more of gods grace we are going all the way ,the talent is there as well as a number one coaching staff .Something is working in Washington so if it is’nt broke don’t fix it just go out there with purpose and attitude to win and bring it home baby bring it home. Hail to all players and staff and fans
