Packers Versus Redskins Keys To The Game | Ticket King Wisconsin

Packers versus Redskins
Ticket King Green Bay invited Tim Bryce to give us his take on the Packers season opener. Take it away Tim! Well, that was an entertaining start to the 2013 season now wasn’t it? And for the bad news?  Now it's the Packers versus the Redskins. As for last Sunday, the Packers lost 34-28, but I do feel the Packers win that game if Casey Hayward and Morgan Burnett play. Now for the good news: That was probably the Packers most difficult game of the 2013 regular season. So for all of you out there who are already panicking, stop, take a deep breath, and relax. The worst is over. Time to move on. The Packers get to come home for their home opener, and they draw the Washington Redskins this weekend. Washington is coming off a Monday Night Football loss to Philadelphia, a game in which the Redskins looked pretty lethargic.
Can the Packers front seven defend the run again like they did in week one? Green Bay went to San Francisco prepared to stop the run, which is obvious based on how they played. The front seven held the 49ers elite running game in check, and refused to let Colin Kapernick run wild. The Redskins game plan entering this game is obvious; they are going to want to run the ball. Can the Packers stop them as well as the stopped the 49ers running game?

Eddie Lacy Comes Alive Late In The Game

In this first outing, rookie running back Eddie Lacy had a below average debut until that fourth quarter drive in which he had some nice runs and scored the touchdown that game the Packers a 28-24 lead. It’s not much, but it is something to build upon. I expect Lacy to be more of an integral part of the offense in this game.

The Packers basically played seven skill position players: Jordy Nelson, James Jones, Randall Cobb, Jermichael Finley, Andrew Quarless, Eddie Lacy, and John Kuhn. Now that they are passed the 49ers game, I expect more snaps from players like Jarrett Boykin, Ryan Taylor, Jon Franklin, and so on. The Packers cannot go the entire season playing just seven skill position players every game. These next few opponents will be an opportunity for them to get some real snaps for these other players.
Can the offensive line play that good again? Entering the season the Packers offensive line was one of the biggest question marks on this team. They played awesome against an elite San Francisco pass rush and gave Rodgers time to throw throughout the game. The Redskins pass rush isn’t as good, so I do expect them to keep this up, hopefully. At the end of the day, I fully expect the Packers to win this game. 31-17 final score.
