Seahawks vs. Redskins 2013: Game preview, kickoff time, TV schedule and more

Kevin Casey

Two of the NFL's hottest teams meet in Wild Card Weekend for an NFC showdown. Which rookie quarterback will come out on top?

When the Seattle Seahawks and Washington Redskins meet on Sunday afternoon, there should be plenty of fireworks. In what will be a battle of two red-hot teams, the 'Hawks and 'Skins will be led by two rookies at the top of the Rookie of the Year race.

Most figured Russell Wilson would sit the bench for a couple of seasons after being selected last spring. Instead, Wilson won the starting job in training camp and has not looked back. Seattle has scored 170 points in the last four weeks, including 58 against Arizona in Week 14. And while the Seahawks' offense has been rolling in December, both their pass and rush defense rank in the top 10 across the league. This is one of the most well-rounded teams in the NFC right now.

The Redskins moved up to take Robert Griffin III with the second overall pick. Griffin is battling a knee injury that has slowed him down recently, although he played well against the Cowboys last Sunday with the division crown on the line. Washington's ground game ranks first in the league thanks to a breakout season from rookie Alfred Morris, who rushed for 1,613 yards and 13 touchdowns this season.

If there is a flaw to the Redskins, it's their pass defense; they rank 30th in the NFL against the pass giving up nearly 282 yards a game. Slowing down Wilson will be a must for coach Mike Shanahan's team.
