Packers Fall to Redskins: Post-Game Thoughts
It’s certainly not time to press the panic button in Green Bay, but it might be time to start thinking about it. The Packers fell to 3-2 after a 16-13 overtime loss in Washington against the Redskins. After a hot start, the Packers’ offense sputtered and the defense couldn’t make stops down the stretch, allowing Donovan McNabb and the Redskins’ offense to put up 10 unanswered points in the fourth quarter before sealing the victory in overtime.
The loss undoubtedly stung the Packers, who now sit a full game behind the Chicago Bears, but the bigger story might have been in the training room, as tight end Jermichael Finley, linebacker Clay Matthews, and quarterback Aaron Rodgers all suffered injuries that could cost them time in the future.
Here are some post-game thoughts regarding the Packers’ Sunday loss.
-Aaron Rodgers was picked by many experts to be the league’s MVP and the starting quarterback for the eventual Super Bowl champs. Five weeks in, Rodgers looks anything like an elite level quarterback. The offensive line was shaky again and the Packers abandoned the run game early, but Rodgers seemed to lack poise and confidence and missed throws he usually makes. His numbers have been above average, but he’s going to need to play much better if the Packers want to play in Dallas in February.
