Sunday will mark Marcus Trufant‘s third career playoff game versus Washington. The two others?
Jan. 14, 2006 — Seahawks 20, Washington 10 (divisional round)
Jan. 5, 2008 — Seahawks 35, Washington 14 (wild-card round)
In fact, one of Trufant’s career highlights came in the game five years ago, when he intercepted a overthrown pass by Todd Collins and had a dazzling 78-yard return for a touchdown (posted in the video above).
So has that moment been on the mind of the Seahawks veteran this week?
“Naw man, that’s ancient history — just a part of Seahawks history,” Trufant said. “If you focus on things in the past, I would say you let things slip in the present. I’m looking forward and I’m just trying to get better.”
