Redskins, Steelers lose in playoffs

January 08, 2008|By RYAN BERRY / Pulse Correspondent

The first week of the playoffs, or wild-card week, was very exciting.

It was a tough defeat for the Washington Redskins. They went ahead of the Seattle Seahawks 14-13 in the fourth quarter, but it all came crashing down after Seattle's offense scored followed by two Seattle interceptions-for-touchdowns.

The New York Giants beat Tampa Bay, 24-14. Giants quarterback Eli Manning uncharacteristically threw no interceptions.

The Jacksonville Jaguars defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers, 31-29. This was their second win over the Steelers in less than a month. Three weeks ago, the Jaguars defeated the Steelers, 29-22.

In San Diego, the Tennessee Titans led 6-0 at the half, but the Chargers came back to win 17-6, capped by an incredible touchdown leap by running back LaDainian Tomlinson.

Eight teams remain in the playoffs. This weekend the Seahawks will play the Green Bay Packers, led by the elderly Brett Favre. The Giants will go to Dallas to take on the Cowboys. The Jaguars will have their work cut out for them. They will take on the undefeated New England Patriots and seemingly unstoppable quarterback Tom Brady. The Chargers will head to Indianapolis to face quarterback Peyton Manning and the Colts.

With only two more weeks of games before the Super Bowl, the remaining teams are sure to put on a show, ensuring some captivating games ahead.
