January 7-- Redskins 17 TB 10

The Redskins gain 120 yards, fewest for a winning playoff team in the history of the NFL.. In a form of karmic justice the Skins get a few fortunate calls in the 17-10 win over TB.. LaVar Arrington appeared to have fumbled a first quarter interception that he returned to the TB six yard line, he was called down by contact..
Edell Sheppard appeared to have caught a game tying touchdown in the fourth quarter, but bobbled it, it was called incomplete, review did not overturn it..
Marcus Washington was not ruled down when a fumble by Carnell Williams turned into a return, re-fumble by Washington, pick up by Sean Taylor and taken in for a 51 yard score..

Had Mike Alstott's two point conversion call gone the Skins way in Tampa in their mid-season meeting, this game would have been played in Washington, the Skins would have won the NFC East and been the 3 seed by virtue of their conference record, TB would have been the six seed in that scenario playing at Fed Ex Field in the first round..

S Sean Taylor was ejected from the game in the second half for spitting in the face of Bucs RB Michael Pittman.. He is not expected to be suspended for the Seattle game but will be fined..

Clitnon Portis ended a 5 game 100 plus yard rush streak, he ended up with 53 yards on 16 carries.. Portis reinjured his shoulder on the game's 3rd play.. He was in and out of the lineup with what the team is calling a shoulder burner but is expected to play next week..

DE Renaldo Wynn broke his right forearm, his season is effectively over.. Demetric Evans and Cedric Killings are the main back-ups who will play in his place..

P Derrick Frost suffered a black eye making a tackle on a punt return.. He should be OK..

T Jon Jansen and T Chris Samuels appeared to be dealing with back and knee issues, but neither were cited by the team after the game on their injury report.. A more detialed report will come out on Monday..

John hall made a 47 yard field goal, his longest of the season..

Washington is at Seattle On Saturday.. The Redskins were the last team to defeat the Seahawks until a late seaon game where Seattle had already locked up home field advantage.. This will be the first ever playoff meeting between the Seahawks and the Redskins..

Joe Gibbs won his 17th career postseaosn game (17-5 overall), he is now alone in third place all time passing Steelers coach Chuck Noll.. The all time playoff winningest coach is Dallas's Tom Landry with 20.. Gibbs has still never lost a wild card game, 5-0..
ESPN reports that Gregg Williams will receive a 1 million dollar bonus if he is still on the staff when Joe Gibbs eventually retires and is not named his succesor, thus the succession line is officially in place.. When Gibbs plans on stepping down is anyone's guess, he has openly talked about coaching through the 5 year deal he signed and his body language and rhetoric this seaosn would lead you to believe he will definitely be back for next season at the least..

This victory could be indicative of good things to come. Our offense was the most pitiful in playoff history (worse than the 2000 SB champion Ravens). We potentially gave the Bucs the fodder needed to overcome our defense with Mr. Taylor's magic lugie. Even Chris Simms was inspired enough to taunt our defense as he ran out of bounds on an improbably gain. And yet, we won. This victory could be nothing, an abberration if Seattle sticks it to us. But to hang on when all the chips were falling the wrong way, says a lot. Good teams can pull victories out against the odds. But to win the 6th straight, 2nd on the road in hostile environments, and doing it UGLY, means we have heart, and some major guts. We may just be looking at something special. Clinton can blow up, Brunell can blow up, Moss, of course can blow up, Cooley, can blow up, and our Defense, is blowing up consistently. This is a dangerous, hungry, and determined team, and in this fan's opinion, will pull it off in Motor-city. Hail Skins!!!
