Upon Further Review: Packers at Redskins


The last time the Green Bay Packers and the Washington Redskins met, Kirk Cousins threw for nearly 400 yards and three touchdowns.

On Saturday, it took Cousins half a game to get anything going against the Packers’ defense.

Cousins and the Redskins’ first-team offense stayed on the field for the entire first half, settling for punts, a field goal and a turnover before finally finding the end zone.

The Packers had no such issues, scoring two first-half touchdowns in their 21-17 defeat of Washington in Week 2 of the preseason.

Aaron Rodgers looked sharp, orchestrating a lengthy scoring drive that ended in a touchdown for new tight end Martellus Bennett, before turning the offense over to backup Brett Hundley.
