Unlike many of the teams they face each week, the Seahawks and Redskins won’t likely surprise each other when they clash helmets in an NFC wild-card game Sunday in what is being billed as The Rookie Bowl.

That’s because each team plays the same style, relying on the scrambling abilities of rookie quarterbacks Robert Griffin III and Russell Wilson, and the rushing of plough-horse running backs Alfred Morris and Marshawn Lynch.

Consider that both defences face similar offences every day in practice. The Seahawks can prepare for RG3 by going up against Wilson in various drills, while the Redskins can get set to stop Wilson by working out against RG3.
