Washington Redskins 20 Green Bay Packers 38
The Washington Redskins once again got off to an awful start in Green Bay. The Packers defeated the Redskins 38-20. Mental errors, sloppy football, and lack of execution led to another disappointing loss.
Stat of the Day: Through the first two games, the Redskins are 5/21 on third down attempts (23%)
Player of the Game: Ryan Kerrigan finished the game with two sacks and five tackles
The Good (I struggled to write this):
1. Alfred Morris- the Redskins running back had limited chances due to the fact Washington was down by a lot early. However, Morris finished with 107 rushing yards on 13 carries.
2. RG3 didn’t get hurt
1. Penalties- The Redskins committed seven penalties for 78 yards.
2. Pass defense- Aaron Rodgers completed 80% of his passes and threw four touchdowns.
3. Dropped passes- Counted about seven passes that could have been caught
4. Offense- The Redskins were held scoreless for more than a half and when they scored their first touchdown they were already down 31-0.
5. Brandon Meriweather- The safety returned to the field after playing just one half last year. This time Meriweather only lasted a little more than a quarter, leaving with a concussion.
6. The Rookies in the secondary- Rambo and Amerson missed tackles, took bad angles to the football, and got beat in coverage.
Outside of forcing some pressure on Aaron Rodgers in the first quarter, the defense was terrible. It seemed like every Packer had a career day on Sunday. Aaron Rodgers finished the game with 480 passing yards, tying a Packer record.
Special Teams: F
Kai Forbath missed the game due to a groin injury and his replacement John Potter missed a field goal badly. Punter Sav Rocca averaged just 36 yards per punt.
The entire offense looked out of sync and was held dormant for the better part of four quarters. Washington was able to muster up two meaningless touchdowns in the fourth quarter.
Who’s next: The Redskins come home to play the 1-1 Detroit Lions.
