Redskins Play Seahawks: Sports Bars in Alexandria, TV Schedule, Lines

In the NFL playoffs this Sunday, the Washington Redskins face the Seattle Seahawks in one of four wildcard games.

The Washington Redskins have been traveling the road back to the NFL playoffs since 2007—and it's been a heck of a ride.

Next stop for the Washington Redskins: Sunday's 4:30 p.m. wildcard game against the Seattle Seahawks.

All this hailing to the Redskins should seem familiar: In 2007, the Redskins made the 2007 NFL playoffs as a wildcard team. And, just like this year, that 2007 playoff game was against the Seattle Seahawks.

Let's hope the similarities end there, because the Seahawks won the last time around. That game, though was in Seattle.

Sunday, the Redskins are at home for the first time in the NFL playoffs since they beat the Detroit Lions in 1999.

Can Robert Griffin III — RG3 — pull off another run against the Seahawks like this Oct. 14 performance against the Minnesota Vikings? (Check out the video of a RGIII touchdown run.)

Or will Albert Morris carry the day as he did here against the Cowboys and continue his record-breaking season? (Here's video of a Morris touchdown run.)

I noticed that some 'sports bars' in Alexandria were left off the list, above, such as 'T.J. Stone's' (http://tjstones.com), 'Alley Cat' (http://www.alleycatalexandria.com), 'Bugsy's Sports Bar' (http://bugsyspizza.com/sportsbarindex.htm), 'Del Ray Pizzeria' (http://delraypizzeria.com), and 'Murphy's of Old Town' (http://murphyspub.com/murphys/alexandria). Now I'm sure some could debate some of the places that I mentioned in regard to them being 'traditional sports bar', and maybe some might not be, in the absolute true sense, but each and every place that I mentioned will also, no doubt, be packed with fans to watch the Seahawks play the Redskins, along with a host of other games, as well. Anyone else think of anywhere else in the City of Alexandria that I might have forgot?

Thanks for the suggestions Pat. I would add Ramparts as well. -Sharon

Sharon, yes, I totally forgot to add Ramparts (http://www.rampartstavern.com), which is a sister restaurant to T.J. Stone's, as well as Shooter McGee's (http://www.shootermcgees.com), too.

Good info. Also recommend The Light Horse (www.thelighthorserestaurant.com), and they have a nice sports bar on the 2nd floor, 700 block of King. Go Skins!
