Week 17: It's on to Week 18 against Seattle

Forget the improbability of a seven-game winning streak and a division championship. The Redskins move on to a playoff game next week against a familiar foe — the Seattle Seahawks.

Yes, Seattle. In the playoffs. Again.

The Seahawks ended Redskins’ playoff runs after the 2005 and 2007 seasons, but nothing is the same from those teams. The biggest difference, though, is in locale: The game will be played on the chewed-up turf of FedEx Field. Whether you prefer to think “third time’s the charm” or “they’re terrible on the road” or “this time, this Redskins team has Robert Griffin III and Alfred Morris,” or “Pete Carroll is no Mike Shanahan,” there’ll be a week of spirited talk and rookie QB comparisons leading up to the game at 4:30 p.m. EST Sunday.

We’ll be here again on the live blog. Thanks for joining us.
