Those were last two postseason games played by Washington. ... Redskins are NFC East champions and No. 4 seed, while Seahawks are seeded No. 5 as wild card from NFC West. ... Seattle has won five straight, outscoring opponents 193-60. Washington has NFC-best seven-game winning streak, outscoring teams 210-140, and is first team since Jaguars in 1996 to reach playoffs after starting 3-6. ...

Their only road playoff win came in first postseason road game, Dec. 31, 1983 at Miami. Streak is second longest in NFL behind Detroit. ... This will be second playoff game in NFL history with two starting rookie QBs, Seattle's Russell Wilson vs. Washington's Robert Griffin III. Last year, T.J. Yates led Texans to 31-10 victory over Andy Dalton and Bengals. ... Griffin (102.4) and Wilson (100) had best single-season rookie passer ratings in NFL history. Wilson's rating was also the best overall in Seahawks history, bettering Matt Hasselbeck's 98.2 in 2005 when Seattle reached Super Bowl. ... Wilson threw 26 TD passes, tying Peyton Manning's NFL rookie record set in 1998. He was first rookie QB in league history to win all eight home games. Griffin set league mark for yards rushing by rookie QB (815) and is only player in NFL history to rush for 750-plus yards and have passer rating of 100 or better. ... Game also features two of league's top three rushers: Washington rookie Alfred Morris finished second with franchise-record 1,613 yards. Seattle's Marshawn Lynch ranked third with career-high 1,590 yards. ... Lynch's total was third in team history behind Shaun Alexander in 2005 (1,880) and 2004 (1,696).

Redskins were second at 52.2 percent. ... Seattle was one of two teams without red zone giveaway this season. ... Seahawks were No. 1 in league in scoring defense, allowing 15.3 points per game. They allowed NFL-low 23 touchdown drives, none shorter than 40 yards. ... Opposing QBs had NFL-low 67.7 passer rating vs. Seattle defense inside 30-yard line. ... Seattle defense was worst in NFL on third-and-long (10-plus yards), allowing teams to convert 33.8 percent. ... Seahawks had top pass defense in NFL when blitzing, holding QBs to passer rating of 59.5. But Redskins have best pass offense in NFL when being blitzed, with a 141.5 passer rating. ... Seattle has just 60 games of combined playoff experience, fewest of 12 teams in postseason. Cincinnati, Minnesota and Washington are next on list, all with 68. ... Seahawks CB Brandon Browner returns from four-game suspension for using banned substance. With CB Richard Sherman winning appeal of similar four-game suspension, the Seahawks will have both starting CBs available for postseason. ... Seattle WR Sidney Rice had zero catches in season finale and was targeted just once. It was first time this season he was shut out and second time since joining Seahawks before 2011 season he went without catch; other was last season against Washington. ... DE Chris Clemons led Seattle with 11 1-2 sacks, his third consecutive season with 11 or more, and DE Bruce Irvin led NFL rookies with eight sacks. ... Seahawks had five players selected to Pro Bowl: Lynch, T Russell Okung, S Earl Thomas, C Max Unger and KR Leon Washington. ... Redskins went worst-to-first after finishing last in division for four straight years. ...
