"I don't think you can say because I did some of those things in the game [against Minnesota] that automatically I'll be able to do that and more on Sunday".
The Redskins offense burst onto the field as quarterback Alex Smith delivered the ball to his playmakers with maximum efficiency. Matthews is the first National Football League player since at least 2001 to be penalized three times for roughing the passer in the first three games of a season. Jones is the most explosive of the Green Bay runners and he will be eager to show he can contribute. That's not roughing the passer.
Another week, another controversial roughing the passer penalty on Clay Matthews.
If the Pack can contain Peterson, they can set the Redskins up for a lot of obvious passing situations and concentrate on pressuring Alex Smith. It looked as though Matthews did everything he could to make a clean hit. "You've got to give (Rodgers) different looks on defense, you've got to confuse him and you've got to send pressure at him". Alexander, the Packers' first-round draft pick, is off to a good start in his National Football League career in showing the potential to make big plays.
Additionally, running back Aaron Jones was activated from exempt status.
Washington (1-1) dropped a 21-9 decision to the Indianapolis Colts last Sunday and hasn't scored a touchdown since the first half of Week 1. McCarthy did not expect CB Kevin King (groin) to play this week, though he did not think it would be a long-term issue.
Coming off of a strong rookie season, running back Jamaal Williams returns to the lead the rushing attack of the Packers.
On Sunday, Smith went 12 for 20 for 220 yards.
Familiar foe Adrian Peterson is now the feature back for Washington after they lost second-round pick Derrius Guice to injury during the preseason.
At some point, the Redskins' habit of stalling in the second half needs to be addressed, but today, the defense came to play when the offense couldn't maintain production.
In addition to the defense struggling, wide receiver Randall Cobb had an extremely rough day as well. Williams has recorded 11 tackles in two game, while Clinton-Dix has secured 10 tackles and an interception. It doesn't help Davis' cause that he'll see plenty of All-Pro corner Jalen Ramsey much of the afternoon.
"Yeah, obviously that's a concern", Rodgers said Wednesday, according to ESPN's Rob Demovsky. Following the Crowder touchdown, the Packers took advantage of a miscue from D.J. Swearinger and Josh Norman - as Rodgers found a wide-open Geronimo Allison for a 64-yard bomb.
Quarterback Aaron Rodgers did not participate in practice on Thursday due to his sprained knee.
But Rodgers admitted Wednesday that his knee could limit McCarthy as a play-caller. For more data and analysis from the game, utilize our Premium Stats 2.0 dashboard to expand your knowledge on the key players, signature stats and much more.
