Both rookie QBs have been complemented by strong running games. For the Redskins, rookie running back Alfred Morris finished second in the NFL with a team-record 1,613 rushing yards. Seahawks running back Marshawn Lunch ranked third in the league with 1,590 yards and was selected to his second Pro Bowl (first with Seattle).
Seattle and Washington enter the postseason as two of the hottest teams in the league. The Seahawks have won five in a row and seven of their past eight while the Redskins are riding a seven-game winning streak and are the fifth team in NFL history to make the playoffs after a 3-6 start.
