Hogs Haven keeps track of who to root for in the other Wild Card games.
The Redskins will face off against Seattle late Sunday afternoon in the first round of the playoffs, but there will be three other games going on this weekend. Let's take a look at who to root for.
Who to Root For: Bengals
Why: Yes, the Redskins already lost to the Bengals this year, but the Texans are a much better team. If Washington is to make a Super Bowl run, not having to face Houston when they get there would be a relief.
Line: Texans -4.5 .
Importance Level: One "Go Catch Your Dream".
Who to Root For: Vikings
Why: If the Packers win, the Redskins will face Atlanta. If Minnesota wins, Washington will face San Francisco. The Redskins already lost to the Falcons this year, but the 49ers are a more formidable opponent. Also of note - Washington's loss to Atlanta was by one touchdown, with Kirk Cousins subbing in at quarterback.
HOWEVER, if both the Vikings and the Redskins win out, Washington will have home-field advantage in the NFC Championship Game.
Line: Packers -7.5.
Importance: Five Barneys.
Who to Root For: Ravens
Why: Because there would be nothing better than a Beltway Super Bowl.
Line: Ravens -6.5.
Importance: Three Elmos.
