Redskins Lead the Seahawks By One at Halftime

The Redskins are playing the Seahawks in the first Skins' playoff game since 2007.  It's 14-13 at halftime.

The Redskins absolutely dominated the first quarter, with RG III and Alfred Morris leading two stellar drives. 

RG III threw a touchdown on the first drive to Evan Royster and a five-yarder to Logan Paulsen on the next drive.

You can tell that Griffin's knee is extremely tender (he actually went to the locker room after the second drive), and he's less mobile than pre-injury.  He also threw an ill-advised long ball on the last drive that was intercepted by the Seahawks.

The Seahawks turned it around in the second quarter -- the yardarge totals were basically reversed with the Skins only gaining 11 yards during the second quarter.
 
I've been very impressed with Russell Wilson (he's living up to the hype).  He makes poised passes and had a couple of nice runs.
 
Sydney Rice made the key play of the game so far, a gorgeous catch, tiptoe on the sideline, that was the key play of the Seahawks' first scoring drive.  I think if we could have prevented this drive, we would have held the momentum into the second quarter.
 
Fortunately our defense held them to field goals on two of their drives. London Fletcher had a nice sack, and Perry Riley had another. Hopefully both offense and defense can come out strong in the second half!!
