Seattle Seahawks vs Washington Redskins 2012 NFC Wild Card

Seattle Seahawks vs Oakland Raiders

Seattle Seahawks vs Oakland Raiders by Neal D

2012 NFL playoffs Seattle Seahawks vs Washington Redskins in the NFC wild card is the closest match game in the wild card round. The teams regular season record is almost the same, their rookie quarterbacks don’t play like rookies, they have the same amount of passing attempts, and both QB’s like to take off running down the field like their running backs.

Quick Summary: The recommended pick is Seattle Seahawks at BetOnline.

NFL Team Stats & Key Players

Seattle Seahawks (11-5) had a great regular season this year without making headlines. They have quietly won 11 games including week 17 victory vs St Louis Rams and that same team is ready for the playoffs. Rookie Russell Wilson has lead this team with a 64% completion rate and the second most rushing yards on the team.

Russell Wilson go to receivers to get down the field quickly and get the touchdown is Sidney Rice, Golden Tate, Zach Miller, and  Doug Baldwin all averaging over 10 yards per catch. Marshawn Lynch will play a factor in this game if the Redskins somehow manage to shut down or slow down the passing game. If this game comes down to a field goal Steven Hauschka will win this game, he has only missed 3 times out of 27 attempts this season.

Washington Redskins Robert Griffin 3

Washington Redskins (10-6) has had an explosive season with RG3 breaking down defenses with his running game. However, his running has not been the same since his injury. Robert Griffin III will need to allow Alfred Morris to do his job as running back as well as connect with his receivers down field since Josh Morgan, Pierre Garcon, Santana Moss, Leonard Hankerson, Logan Paulsen, and Fred Davis are all averaging over 10 yards per catch.

RG3 should stay in the patch and rack up the passing yards and only use his running game as a last resort. However, against the Seahawks defense he may need to run more often than he thinks. Both Robert Griffin III aka RG3 and Russell Wilson are running quarterbacks. So Bovada has a few prop bets going for the game on Sunday.

Seattle Seahawks vs Washington Redskins Predictions

This game is going to be close throughout the game. I think it will come down to a field goal by either team. However, I think it may come down to the Seahawks relying on their kicker Steven Hauschka to win the game for them. Since he only missed 3 field goals throughout the whole 2012 NFL regular season. My prediction is Seattle Seahawks 24-21.

My Prediction: Seattle Seahawks 24-21

Game Final Score

  • Seattle Seahawks: 24
  • Washington Redskins: 14
