The Green Bay Packers bounced in their second game back from their first week loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers led his team to a 38-20 victory over the Washington Redskins. Not only did he lead his team to take the win, but he also led them in a record setting day. Rodgers went 34 of 42 for a career high 480 yards and four touchdowns at Lambeau Field on last Sunday. According to the Packers, this game was the first in NFL history to have a 450-yard passer and 125-yard rusher in the same game. It was also a first for a game to have a 400-yard passer and a 100-yard rusher. Aaron’s 480 passing yards also tied a franchise record set by a former teammate last season. Rodgers had woke up that morning with a stiff neck, but after an adjustment from the trainer and the adrenaline from the game, no one could tell he was feeling any pain.
The Packers started the game off sluggish, allowing three sacks on Rodgers in just the first nine minutes, but then picked their heads up and scored touchdowns on three straight drives. The defense played extraordinary in the first half, holding down RGIII, and went on their way to a 24-0 lead at half. In the first quarter, Randall Cobb added nine catches for 128 yards and a 35-yard touchdown in the first quarter. The touchdown came off a fourth and 3rd play. Rodgers, who had 335 yards in the first half, had touchdown passes to Jordy Nelson and Jermichael Finley in the second quarter.
With the win, the Packers are now 1-1, while the Redskins fall to 0-2. Griffin finished 26 of 40 for 320 yards and three touchdowns. Last week, the Packers were down 26-7 in the first half to the Eagles, then rallied back in the second half, but were still defeated 33-27. They will need to win their next game in order to avoid a 0-3 season start. The Green Bay Packers will play again on Sunday, September 22nd at 1:00 pm against the Cincinnati Bengals, who are also 1-1.
