Packers bounce back from last weekend’s defeat.
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers led his side to a 38-20 win over the Washington Redskins at Lambeau Field on Sunday night.
In what was a record-breaking night for the 29-year-old, he was 34 for 42 for a career-high 480 yards and four touchdowns.
Meanwhile, receiver James Jones had a career-best of 178 yards and James Starks ran for 132 yards and a score in a dominant win over the Redskins.
Rodgers had complained of a stiff neck prior to kick-off, but after a sluggish start by the Packers in which he was sacked three times in the first nine minutes, he went on to throw for three touchdowns in the next three straight drives.
Meanwhile, the defensive unit held Roberto Griffin III at bay as they took a 24-0 half-time lead, and they were never really in danger of giving this one up as they bounced back from the opening day defeat to the San Francisco 49ers.
Meanwhile, it’s now two defeats in two for the Redskins who followed up their loss against the Philadelphia Eagles with this heavy reverse.
Griffin finished with 26 for 40 for 320 yards and three touchdowns, but unfortunately for Washington most of the productive play came in the second half when the Packers were up by three scores and coasting to victory.
Green Bay will hope to now kick on from their victory when they take on the Cincinnati Bengals next weekend, while the Redskins will be eager to get their season started with a win over the Detroit Lions.
