They call it wildcard weekend for a reason, and I can see any of these teams advancing to the next round of the playoffs. I think the Redskins are going to come out and beat the Seahawks fairly easily. A lot of my DISH coworkers have their favorite teams in the playoffs so it’s been fun to see them debate about who’s going to win. I love the NFL playoffs and I’ve already set timers for all the games on my DISH Hopper so I can keep up with all of them. I like to go back and re-watch games before the next round and I can do that since my DVR holds up to 2,000 hours of programming.
