just before their 1st playoff game
if they just faced the giants in the playoffs before the giants went to the world series then yeah
The last time the Washington Redskins won a playoff game was after the 2005 season, during which they went 10-6 and qualified for the playoffs as a wild card team. They won the wild card playoff game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 17-10. The Redskins went on to lose in the divisional playoffs the next week to the Seattle Seahawks by the score of 20-10.
Yes. For ten years, 1960-1969, the NFL played a game called the Playoff Bowl that pitted the two losing teams from the playoffs (only four teams made the playoffs at the time). The game was played the week following the NFL Championship game. Six of these games were played before the Super Bowl was created ... four after. The Playoff Bowl games ended with the AFL-NFL merger.
The NFL schedule is set, and each team has to play 16 games. A team can secure a spot in the playoffs before the end of the season based on their record and the records of the other teams in their conference. At the end of the season, after all the games are played, the NFL seeds the playoffs. This means the teams with the best records get the 1 and 2 seed. The way the playoffs are set, the 1 and 2 seeds get a bye in the first round of the playoffs. The Seahawks clinched a playoff berth, but the seeding in the playoffs was not set. Therefore they had to finish out the season schedule despite already qualifying for the playoffs.
Being in the playoffs, period. Before 1995 only the division leaders got playoff berths, wild card teams cannot possess home field advantage in their own league in the playoffs, just the world series, if their league won the all-star game.
how many games is left this year in april before the playoff begin.
As of January 17, 2009, there are technically five games to be played before the Super Bowl arrives. Since the NFC Divisional playoff has already been played there are only the two games from the AFC Divisional playoff and then both the AFC and NFC championship playoffs. A week before the Super Bowl there is the Pro Bowl so that is why it tallys to five games in all.
All players that are on a Major League Baseball's 25 man roster before September 1 hits, this will include players on the team's Disabled Lists. However there are some exceptions to this rule, a player from one of its Minor League organizations will be allowed to take a Playoff spot on the roster in place of an injured player as long as they were part of the organization prior to September 1.
5. Manning took over as Colts starting QB in 1998. His first playoff win was January 4, 2004 (2003 season) against the Denver Broncos in the Wildcard round. He had lost three playoff games (1999, 2000, 2002) prior to that first win.
Most leauges have a cutoff date of eligibility. For example, Major league Baseball players must be on their team's roster by September 1st in order to be considered for the playoffs. Players added after that date would only be eligible in case of a rash of injuries, which of course no one would wish for.
