Green Bay Packers – A Closer Look:
Green Bay lost their third in a row last weekend with a 47-25 destruction down in Tennessee. They gave up 21 of those 47 points in the first quarter as the Titans scored points on their first four drives. Green Bay tried to fight back, but it was too little too late. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers passed for 371 yards by going 31 for 51. He had a pair of touchdown passes and was also picked off twice. It was the fourth time in the past five outings that Green Bay has given up at least 30 points. Needless to say, their defense needs to do a lot better if they hope to upend the Redskins.
It’s not going to be easy though since Washington has been playing well on both sides of the ball. They are averaging 407.8 yards per game this season and the squad has also been credited with 25 sacks. The Packers are averaging 253.4 yards in the air per week along with 102.4 on the ground. They’ll be facing a Washington side which concedes 250 passing yards an outing and 115.2 rushing yards. Green Bay is 1-3 both straight up and ATS away from home this season, but has beaten Washington in their past two meetings.
Washington Redskins – A Closer Look:
The Redskins’ defense was tight and the offense took advantage of its chances in last week’s 26-20 over struggling Minnesota. Preston Smith had a good game with a pair of sacks and an interception late in the contest. Quarterback Kirk Cousins chipped in with a pair of touchdown passes and 262 yards total in the air. Cousins also helped out by setting up kicker Dustin Hopkins for his four second-half field goals. Washington still has a way to go though if they hope to catch division leaders Dallas, but their playoff chances are still alive.
Cousins is up against a struggling Packers team which couldn’t control Titans’ quarterback Marcus Mariota last week as he burned them with four touchdown passes. The Redskins are averaging 294.4 yards in the air per game this season along with 113.8 on the ground. The Packers’ defense concedes 253.6 yards in the air and just 85.3 on the ground. Washington is 3-2 both straight up and ATS at home so far this year.
Next up for both teams:
- Green Bay at Philadelphia Monday, November 28
- Washington at Dallas Thursday, November 24
