Washington does have Josh Norman in the secondary, who will probably cover Davante Adams for much of the game, but that’s still a matchup Green Bay can win. He had two 100-yard games, including 125 and a score on 19 carries in a win at Dallas on October 8.
Alex Smith will forever be remembered as the player the San Francisco 49ers drafted instead of Aaron Rodgers in the 2005 NFL Draft.
Much like the first two weeks, a very limited footprint for our game.
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. Smith has averaged 243 yards passing in past three games vs. Packers. Alfred Morris will still get his touches but in a game with two bad defenses, Brieda is the clear choice, especially in point-per-reception (PPR) formats.
The Packers’s first drive includes a sack of Aaron Rodgers and a dropped pass on third down by Randall Cobb.
By Nate LoCascio The Green Bay Packers have released defensive back Deante Burton. It’s possible the wet weather in Washington affected his availability. His runs opened the offense for Smith to make longer throws downfield. That may not be enough to help Packers fans rest easy. Mason Crosby kicks a 41-yard field goal. That followed a Sunday night season opener against the Bears. Cole has caught 10 of his 12 targets in the early going and has shown his big-play skills, having pulled in four passes of 20-plus yards.
The 1-0-1 Packers travel to Washington for their first road game of the season this weekend.
Such deficits never seem to bother Rodgers. “Go Pack Go! All proceeds will go to paying for the fines that may accumulate from the penalties against the Packer’s [sic]”. Adrian Peterson runs it in for a touchdown.
The Packers are not concerned about Rodgers’ mobility after he appeared improved both laterally and moving forward in Week 2. With Rodgers hurt, some of the chunk plays are missing from the offense and that plays right into the kind of game Washington wants to play.
This week, that same thinking applies to the Packers as they go visit the Washington football team. The second one, against the Vikings, was a highly controversial play that may well have cost the Packers a victory.
But he still had a strong performance Sunday against a stout Vikings defense, hitting on 30-of-42 pass attempts for 281 yards, a touchdown and no interceptions. I still think that Peterson will be able to get outside some and he should have a better day than the 11 carries for 20 yards he had against the Colts.
