The Redskins announced Monday that season ticket holders will be able to purchase tickets to the first round of the playoffs starting Thursday, Dec. 27.

Tickets go on sale to the general public two days later.

The Redskins are offering two ways to reserve seats: “Pay-When-We-Are-In” (credit card only), or Pay In Full (check or money order).

If the Redskins don’t make the playoffs, credit cards won’t be charged. Or, the check payments will be applied to 2013 tickets.

The Redskins can win the NFC East if they win the next two games, and then would host a first-round playoff game.

Washington last hosted a playoff game in 1999.
