The Ravens might be Maryland's team, but with FedEx Field about 10 miles away, this area is more likely a part of Redskins Nation.
At least, that's the way Marcus Afzali sees it.
“When the Redskins are doing well, which isn’t often, the number of Redskins jerseys to Ravens jerseys isn’t even comparable," the College Park councilman said.
In addition to being a part of the Washington suburbs, the area does have serious ties to the Redskins, like former Eleanor Roosevelt High School player Travon Bellamy, who now plays for Washington. Then there's Josh Wilson and Kevin Barnes, former Terps who moved on to play for the Skins.
But the Redskins haven't competed in a playoff game since losing in the wildcard round against Seattle in the 2007 season. Meanwhile, the Ravens beat the Browns 20-14 two weeks ago, officially reaching the playoffs for the fourth season in a row.
So have Washington fans been rooting for the Ravens during the playoffs all this time?
"Absolutely," Afzali said of himself.
Having moved to the area when he was 2 years old, he grew up with one local NFL choice: the Washington Redskins, who play in Landover, Md. It wasn't until 1996 that the Baltimore Ravens played their first season.
But Afzali will root for the Ravens this weekend, his second favorite team.
“A close second," he added.
But it's hard to say that Afzali is the norm, when Redskins fans . He learned two years ago not to door knock during the campaign season when the Redskins were playing.
"People get very angry," he said.
