A lead built behind an offense that had finally erupted, suddenly seemed precarious as Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers stood in the rain on muddy turf and threatened yet another of his miraculous comebacks. The second one, against the Vikings, was a highly controversial play that may well have cost the Packers a victory.
Even though Rodgers has been listed as questionable all week, he is expected to play and even though he's not 100 percent, he needs to be sharp. "So we'll see how the team responds out of this format that we're in today".
Veteran linebackers Clay Matthews and Nick Perry return to patrol the middle of the field for Green Bay. "So again, we can definitely benefit from a good run game each week". Alex Smith is light years better than Mitchell Trubisky at the quarterback position, but that's about where the comparisons end for Washington and Chicago. It will be best to wait a game or two before going all-in with Gordon, whose upside has never looked better now that he is with a franchise who can help him mature on and off the field. A strong running game goes a long way, and with the way the defense has been playing, it will be up to the offense to step up and provide some points; Points that were in short supply last week. He'll join Tramon Williams, Jaire Alexander and Josh Jackson as the Packers' four healthy cornerbacks. Burton started this season on the Falcons' practice squad, but was elevated to the active roster last Wednesday and appeared on defense and special teams in Week 1. The writing is on the wall for this one to be a comfortable win.
At least Jones was able to work out at Lambeau Field and attend meetings during the suspension; he just couldn't practice or attend games. Two plays later, Peterson dove forward for his second touchdown, giving Washington a 28-10 lead that the Redskins carried into halftime.

Ma pointed to business opportunities in other regions such as Europe, South America, Russia and Africa, Xinhua said. As Alibaba grows into new markets, there will always be some sort of new burden they will have to accept.
I'm already forgetting the idea that the Packers might lose this game. The threat of his injured knee giving way blends in with a road game against a Redskins defense that has allowed 161 passing yards per game and a mere 5.1 yards per attempt.
On Sunday, Smith silenced those questions with 220 passing yards and two touchdowns. He made some tough catches along the way, as well.
Defensively, the Redskins did some good things.
"If you've seen (the movie) 'Rocky III, ' you know Clubber Lang has a prediction before the fight: 'Pain, '" Rodgers said with a smile on Wednesday. And after what happeend last week, Rodgers will want to prove a point, which is why the Redskins shouldn't feel overly hopeful heading into Sunday.
