Packers make too many mistakes in loss to Washington in Week 3

Aaron Rodgers looks set to play against the Washington Redskins this weekend

For the second consecutive week, it looks like Washington's home crowd will again elect to stay home instead of watching the team's matchup against the Green Bay Packers in person. Peterson punched in a two-yard gain from the goal line.

But with nearly every game in the NFL's 16-game season carrying stakes, Green Bay has determined that it can't afford to have Rodgers sit as long as he's able to play without significant chance of re-injury.

On a rainy afternoon, the Redskins (2-1) went up 14-0 and were ahead 28-10 at halftime, thanks to putting together TD drives of 74, 75, 79 and 98 yards.

Packers linebacker Clay Matthews was flagged for another roughing-the-passer penalty after sacking Redskins quarterback Alex Smith.

Washington (1-1) dropped a 21-9 decision to the Indianapolis Colts last Sunday and hasn't scored a touchdown since the first half of Week 1. Matthews broke free into the backfield, grabbed Smith with both arms and took down the QB in a seemingly straightforward manner. Next up at No. 6 is former Redskins star John Riggins, at 104. "So we just have to ride the wave and I think we did a great job today and got a win".

"You could see it during the week: the focus, the determination", said Peterson, who rushed for two touchdowns. "Riggins, he's a guy that I do remember seeing up there on the list and thinking, 'God willing, I'll be able to pass him eventually'".

This was Peterson's 52nd game with at least 100 yards on the ground, and first since November 5, 2017, for Arizona against San Francisco.

"We just came out and laid an egg in the first half". He also had his streak of 156 consecutive passes without an interception, the longest active run in the National Football League, end in the second quarter. Safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix made the pick when Reed went one way and Smith threw another.

Rodgers suffered a knee injury during Week 1's victory over the Chicago Bears and played Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings with a brace. The offense was electric, with Alex Smith pushing the ball downfield, and Adrian Peterson churning out yards on the ground, ending the game with 120 yards and two touchdowns on 19 carries.

"... Obviously it won't be 100 percent, so I'll just adjust accordingly to how I'm feeling and try to get through". "It can be painful at times moving around, especially lateral movement".

In the end, it's probably the sluggish starts that's most important for the Packers to get a handle on, because three-score deficits early in games is no way to live.

The Packers own a dynamic duo at wide receiver, with veterans Randall Cobb and Davante Adams leading the way. Smith found Davis streaking down the sideline for 50 yards.
