Green Bay Packers
The Packers 1-0-1 thus far into the season and will be looking to take advantage of a wide open NFC North this upcoming weekend. No team in the division has more than one win this season, meaning that anyone could rise as the divisional leader. However, since the Vikings are facing the weak Buffalo Bills this weekend, it’s imperative that Green Bay win this NFC matchup in order to avoid losing ground in the division. Luckily for the Packers, they just happen to be 6-2 against the Redskins in their last 8 meetings. Nevertheless, Green Bay will need their offense to be on point if they’re to beat Washington. Through just two weeks into the season, the Redskins have the best total defense, the best pass defense, and are giving up the second fewest amount of points per matchup. Granted, they’ve only faced the Cardinals and Colts thus far into the season. Bottom line, Rodgers needs to be on point this Sunday.
Players to Watch: Aaron Rodgers (567 passing yards, 4 TD, 0 INT), Jamaal Williams (106 rushing yards, 0 TD, 0 F), and Randall Cobb (172 receiving yards, 1 TD, 13 REC).
The Redskins charge into this NFC pairing flashing a 1-1 record. Like the NFC North, the NFC East is very much open to any contenders. Right now the top three teams in the division are sporting 1-1 record. But with Carson Wentz making his return this Sunday, Washington cannot afford to lose any more games. With Wentz back in the lineup, the Eagles should be the clear favorites in the NFC East. Ultimately it’s up to Alex Smith to set Washington apart. Smith was brought in to help tip this team into the playoffs, and he got a ton of money to do so. We already mentioned how good the Redskins defense is. With that in mind, any shortcomings they endure this season will fall on Smith’s shoulders – rightfully so.
Players to Watch: Alex Smith (547 passing yards, 2 TD, 0 INT), Adrian Peterson (116 rushing yards, 1 TD, 0 F), and Chris Thompson (155 receiving yards, 1 TD, 19 REC).
