ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — The last top seed to open its playoff run against a team it had just lost to at home in December was the 2008 New York Giants, who were beaten again by Philadelphia in the rematch.
Royal and Redskins running back Royster grew up together in Fairfax County. They helped Westfield High to a Group AAA, Division 6 state championship in 2003 and both went on to college success at Virginia Tech and Penn State, respectively. But this week will be just Royal's third game in his hometown.

Maybe Dezmon Briscoe will turn out to be another Ramzee Robinson. Remember him? (It's OK if you don't.) Robinson was a cornerback — a former Mr. Irrelevant, no less — who was claimed off waivers by the Washington Redskins in 2010, Mike Shanahan's first season as coach.
The Washington Redskins' salary cap situation, weakened by an $18 million penalty for 2012, has affected their ability to sign free agents this offseason, coach Mike Shanahan intimated Wednesday.
The Washington Redskins filled their void at strong safety on Thursday by agreeing to terms with Brandon Meriweather, a two-time Pro Bowler who joins his third team in less than seven months, but reportedly lost out on one of their receiver targets.
Washington Redskins coaches lamented their dearth of playmakers at the end of a 5-11 season. During the opening hours of free agency Tuesday, the organization aggressively attempted to remedy that by overhauling its corps of wide receivers.
Bury the blueprints on how to thwart Tim Tebow. He can beat you with his arm as well as his legs.
By now, everybody knows Tim Tebow, the quirky quarterback. Hardworking work in progress, imperfect passer getting by on more will than skill, bigger on moxie than mechanics.
Tim Tebow's 20-yard touchdown run with 58 seconds left capped a 95-yard drive and sent the Denver Broncos to a 17-13 victory over the stunned New York Jets on Thursday night.
Look at what Eli Manning did. And Patrick Peterson. Eddie Royal and Willis McGahee, too.
Tim Tebow has lost his top target even before making his first start of the season.
The Denver Broncos believe a turnaround starts with better starts.
"I was real close. It would have been a good deal being able to play at home and play for [Shanahan], who drafted me," Royal said. "It was an opportunity for me to make all that happen. ... But I'm happy with my decision. I've got a lot of respect for the Redskins. That was my favorite team growing up. So it was hard to say no to those guys."
"[Washington is] always going to be home for me," Royal said. "I love the area. I'm a Virginia Tech guy also so I tried to stay as close to home as I could. It's probably somewhere I'll look to live when I'm done playing."
