WASHINGTON (9-7) AT SEATTLE (10-6)
WHEN: Saturday, 2:30 p.m. MST
WHERE: Qwest Field, Seattle
GHOSTS OF PLAYOFFS PAST:
WASHINGTON: John Riggins. This is the 25th anniversary of the Redskins’ run to Super Bowl XVII — and I use the word “run” because it was Riggins who carried the team to the promised land of Pasadena. One-hundred and nineteen yards against Detroit in the opening-round win over Detroit … another 185 yards a week later against Minnesota … a 140-yard stampede over Dallas in the NFC Championship … and a then-Super Bowl record 166 yards against Miami to give the Redskins their first world title in 40 years. He would eventually stretch his run of consecutive 100-yard playoff games to six before having it snapped in Super Bowl XVIII a year later. The only man with more consecutive 100-yard rushing games in the playoffs? Denver’s Terrell Davis.
