Sunday's home playoff games in Landover and Baltimore will bring in $2.5 million each, state comptroller Peter Franchot told The Washington Post.
While Sunday's football schedule is shaping up to be a dream day for fans of the Washington Redskins and Baltimore Ravens, it's also a financial boon for the state. The Redskins and Ravens games — each hosting Sunday's NFL wild card round playoffs — are expected to net approximately $2.5 million in taxes for Maryland, state comptroller Peter Franchot told The Washington Post . Franchot said the increase in taxes is expected to come from "sales of high-priced playoff tickets, souvenirs, and concessions as well as taxes on bonuses for players and coaches," among other places, according to the report. “When both teams are in the playoffs, there’s a synergistic impact where folks just feel better in Maryland, and when folks feel better there’s…

The Redskins stunned the Saints in New Orleans, 40-32; the Ravens rolled over the Cincinnati Bengals at home on Monday Night Football.
Could week 1 have possibly gone any better for the two NFL teams separated by merely an hour on I-95?

Their season may be shot, but are you a fair weather fan?
After coming out of the gate with a strong preseason, the Redskins' performance has gone steadily downhill this year, culminating with a loss last week to the Miami Dolphins, who had only won one game this season before defeating Washington. The Redskins have been plagued with injuries and an unstable quarterback position this year, losing their last five games and consequently sinking to last place in the NFC East. This week, 3-6 Washington plays division rival Dallas. The Skins/Cowboys rivalry goes back decades and is usually one of the most talked about games of the season. But this week there seems to be little excitement for Sunday's match up. Have we given up on the Redskins? Take our poll and let us know.
