But there’s no doubt that the most tender meat on the wild-card dish this weekend will take place in Maryland, where rookie quarterbacks who have led their teams on amazing rides throughout this season will battle. Can’t get any better.

If this game falls flat on its face, it probably won’t be because the QBs aren’t doing their jobs.

Wilson and the Seahawk offense are on the mother of all tears. Fifty points against Buffalo, 58 against Arizona, and – more remarkably – 42 against a 49er defense that had been considered one of the best in the league, if not the best.


Griffin III will see that and raise. The Redskins have seven wins in a row in their back pockets, and five of them came against NFC East opponents as RGIII proved that he is the top offensive player in the division. Sure Eli Manning has a few rings, but come on.

There’s a reason that Andrew Luck and Joe Flacco are relegated to a 1 p.m. kickoff on Sunday and Wilson and Griffin will share the more-watched 4:30 spotlight.

Here are a few questions that will be answered by the time 60 Minutes airs on Sunday night:

1. Can the Seahawks finally win an important road game? Seattle’s road problems over the years are well-documented, and this season the Seahawks were 3-5 away from the great Northwest and had only one significant away victory (overtime vs. the Bears).

2. Can Pete Carroll concoct a defense that will make Griffin nervous? One amazing statistic – RGIII has thrown only five interceptions all season. By comparison, Tom Brady has 8, Peyton Manning 11 and Matt Ryan 14.[soliloquy id=”82219″]

3. Who in the world is Alfred Morris?

The rookie RB from Florida Atlantic was a killer during the Redskins’ late-season run to top of the NFC East, and he was almost personally responsible for ending Dallas’s chances, running for 113 in the first meeting with the Boys and 200 in the second.

The kid averages 4.8 yards every time he carries the ball, and if the Seahawks sleep on him, it will make for a long plane ride back to Washington state.

As mind-boggling as the ride has been for Seattle, it ends here. The Seahawks are just a different team at home and on the road, and the Redskins are playing at too high level to fold at home.

Seattle had that big late-season beatdown of the 49ers, but most of their November/December victories came against teams that were struggling.

Redskins get it done, covering the 2.5.

Totals players should take a hard look at the under in a game featuring two teams which do not tend to turn over the ball and in which field position will be at a premium.
