2013 NFL Playoffs: Rookie QBs Square Off Between Seattle Seahawks and Washington Redskins
The 2013 NFL Playoffs have a bit of a twist this year as three rookie quarterbacks will be starting this year–including Sunday’s matchup between the Seattle Seahawks and Washington Redskins when Russell Wilson squares off against Robert Griffin III. These two teams are two of the hottest in the NFC right now as the Seahawks contain one of the top defenses in the NFL while the Redskins have won seven-straight games following a disappointing 3-6 start–so it should be interesting to see how this matchup plays out on Sunday.
Seattle was already one of the top teams in the league in the second half of the season with a steller defense as they finished the regular season winning seven of their last eight games. It was one thing to see Wilson beat out Matt Flynn for the starting job, but for him to lead the Seahawks’ offense the way he has this season was something nobody could have seen coming as the former Wisconsin star threw 26 touchdowns and just 10 interceptions.
As for Griffin, the second overall pick has displayed a record-breaking season as well after throwing for 3,200 yards and 20 touchdowns to go along with 815 rushing yards and seven touchdowns on the ground. If the regular season is any indication of what to expect, both of these star rookies should have some impressive games on Wild Card weekend, but it’s difficult not to give Seattle the edge in this one.
They say defense wins championships and when it comes to these two teams–the Seahawks have the advantage in this one.
