After last Sunday night's win over the Dallas Cowboys, which clinched the NFC title, local fans are waiting in suspense for this weekend's home playoff game. This will be the first time in 13 seasons the Skins will host it.
Some locals are hoping for a win, and a step closer to the Super Bowl. Many say they are feeling that Redskins' fever.
"I have been waiting quite a long time to see this," says Maria Cocchiaro, a Redskin's fan. "So I'm just really stoked the way they played last week, and looking hopefully to another victory and some celebration afterwards."
"They played exceptionally well last week and it surprised me, I think they are hyped up, they're really going to go, I think, they will go to the finish line," says Jim Rinehart, a Redskins fan.
The Skins ended the regular season with seven consecutive wins, thanks to the play of NFL rookie of the year candidates quarterback Robert Griffin the Third, and running back Alfred Morris. Devoted fans say to continue that momentum, they'll need big moves from their two biggest stars.
"Honestly with Griffin and Morris, if they play their best, and have great plays from the offensive line, I think we can take them down," says Sean Geyer, a Redskins fan.
"Just do what they have been doing, run the ball and play action," says Phil D'Angelo, a Redskins fan.
Game time is this Sunday at 4:30 p.m. at Fed Ex Field in Landover, Md.
"The Redskins are back, like they were back in the 70's and 80's winning championships and Super Bowls, they are back," says Reggie Cosens, a Redskins fan.
