The Washington Redskins have spent since 2007 traveling the road back to the NFL playoffs—but it's been a heck of a ride. Next stop: Sunday's wildcard game against the Seattle Seahawks.
All this hailing to the Redskins should seem familiar. In 2007, the Redskins also made the NFL playoffs, as a wildcard team. And, just like this year, that 2007 playoff game was against the Seattle Seahawks.
Let's hope the similarities end there, because the Seahawks won the last time around. That game, though was in Seattle. Sunday, the Redskins are at home for the first time in the NFL playoffs since they beat the Detroit Lions in 1999.
