By now, you are all familiar with the story of last season’s spectacular seven-game winning streak to end the 2012 campaign with an NFC East championship in the bag. The memory of the team’s bitter defeat to the Seattle Seahawks in the wild card round of the playoffs, however, quickly fades away.
And rightfully so as it wasn’t the note that anyone wanted the magical season to end on.
Last week, NFL.com gave you the fans the chance to predict how the 2013 campaign will develop from kickoff of the first Thursday Night game to the last whistle of the Super Bowl.
Fans predicted that the Redskins will cruise to their first back-to-back division crowns since the 1983-84 seasons, but in their first round playoff matchup against the Seahawks (once again) Washington already has its back against the wall.
This seems like a reoccurring theme for the Burgundy and Gold. No worries though, as just like the Redskins had time to come back from 3-6 last year, there is still ample amount of time for them to advance in this virtual battle.
As you can see the Redskins are fighting an uphill battle against the fifth seeded Seahawks.
If this matchup where to become reality, it would mark the fourth straight time that Washington has faced Seattle in the postseason.
While I don’t want to expose the wounds of losses in the first there affairs, I do want to point out that losing to a team four straight times is a difficult task to achieve.
Prime example—the 2012 UConn women’s basketball team against Notre Dame. The Huskies fell victim to the Fighting Irish in their first three contests. In the fourth meeting, though, UConn crushed Notre Dame by 20.
The Redskins currently hold an 11-7 series advantage over their NFC counterparts.
Will they claim a clean dozen victories over the Seahawks—it’s up to you.
Voting ends tomorrow.
Hail to the Redskins!
