If the Redskins beat the Seahawk's this Sunday, Seattle's mayor will have to fly the District's flag over his City Hall.

D.C. mayor Vincent Gray and the mayor of Seattle have a bet on the outcome of Sunday's playoff game between the Redskins and the Seahawks.

The mayor with the losing team must fly the victor's flag over his city's City Hall for a day. D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray says he's confident it will be Seattle flying the District's flag.

He says the Seahawks have not won a road playoff game since 1983. But the Redskins have also lost their last two playoff appearances against the Seahawks in 2005 and 2007.

In October, D.C. had to fly the St. Louis flag over the Wilson building for a day. That's after the Washington Nationals lost the National League Division Series to the St. Louis Cardinals.
