Research Notes

  • RGIII's Total QBR in the first quarter was 97.1. For the remainder of the game it was just 5.9.

  • The Seahawks are the third team in NFL history to win a postseason game in which they trailed by 14 or more points at the end of the first quarter.

  • The Redskins did not run a single play from inside of Seattle territory after the first quarter...After a first quarter in which the Redskins outgained the Seahawks 129-9, they were then outgained 371 to 74 the rest of the game...

  • The Redskins did not run a single play in Seahawks territory after the first quarter. They are the only team to not run an offensive play in opponent territory after the first quarter in any playoff game over the last 10 years.

  • After a forgettable first quarter in which the Seahawks gained just 9 yards on 7 plays, they exploded for 371 yards over the final 3 quarters and averaged over 6 yards per play.

  • - Griffin only scrambled one time over his last three games (for 1 yard), after leading the league in scrambles (43) and scramble yards (411) before that point.- Robert Griffin completed 1-of-3 passes outside of the pocket Sunday, and was 2-of-9 outside of the pocket after returning from his knee injury Week 16. Prior the injury, Griffin completed half of such passes and his 81.6 Total QBR outside the pocket ranked fifth in the league.- RG III was off-target on 5-of-19 (26.3 percent) throws Sunday, and 25 percent of his pass attempts since his injury were over or underthrown incompletions. Prior to the injury, only 13 percent of his throws were off-target, second-best in the league.

  • NEXT LEVEL: Robert Griffin III, already hobbled by his knee injury, was not the same quarterback after making a throw on the run with 3:23 left in the first quarter, causing him to come up limping after the play. After that point, Griffin completed 5-of-11 passes for 20 yards, while the Redskins gained 47 yards and ran two option play before he was pulled from the game.

  • NEXT LEVEL: Robert Griffin III, already hobbled by his knee injury, was not the same quarterback after making a throw on the run with 3:23 left in the first quarter, causing him to come up limping after the play. After that point, Griffin completed 5-of-11 passes for 20 yards, while the Redskins gained 47 yards and ran two option play before he was pulled from the game.

  • NEXT LEVEL: The Redskins sent at least five pass rushers on 17 of Russell Wilson's 33 dropbacks (51.5 percent), the second-highest pressure percentage Wilson has seen this season. When Wilson was able to get the pass off against the extra pass rushers, he completed 7-of-11 for 101 yards and a touchdown, but he was also sacked a season-high five times. In his last two games, Wilson has been sacked eight times on 28 dropbacks against extra pressure (once every 3.5 dropbacks).

  • NEXT LEVEL: Marshawn Lynch rushed 20 times for 132 yards and the game-winning touchdown Sunday, the most rushing yards he has had in a game since Week 13 of 2011. His 65 yards after first contact and a 3.3 yards after contact per rush average were higher than any game this past regular season.

  • The Seahawks offense used the option on 11 rushes for 110 yards Sunday, with 66 yards coming in the second half, including Marshawn Lynch's game-winning touchdown. Entering the playoffs, the Redskins and Seahawks ranked second and third in the league in option rushes, but the Redskins ran only four options in the game, and twice after Robert Griffin re-aggravated his knee injury.Since the start of Week 13, the Seahawks lead the NFL with 61 rushes and 474 yards on option rushes.
