Rodgers anxious knee will worsen throughout season

Appearing on "The Herd with Colin Cowherd" on Friday, Hall said that the Redskins have a chance to beat the Packers if Washington is able to stop Rodgers from making a huge impact on the game.

As it turns out, Peterson was right. Despite seeing Aaron Rodgers go down in Week 1, he can still play.

The latest penalty fell under the modified rule inspired by Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers that doesn't allow players to land on a QB with "all or most" of their weight. Cobb has recorded 13 receptions for 172 yards and 1 touchdowns, while Adams has supplied 13 receptions for 152 yards and 2 touchdowns this season.

"(I) would like to see football be football", Matthews said. "Last week was an embarrassment". More than 30 roughing-the-passer penalties were called in this season's first two weeks.

Washington took in Kansas City castoff Alex Smith to replace Kirk Cousins, who left for Minnesota.

"Can we do some (play-) action or can we not?" Matthews immediately put his arms up and slapped himself in the helmet as the flag was thrown. After Washington finished with just 65 yards on the ground last week against the Colts, the franchise had 166 yards against the Packers. He shed off defenders. Green Bay needs to make sure he doesn't have a breakout game against the team he has enjoyed so much success against during his years in Minnesota. He had a 41-yard run in the second quarter.

SIT: Corey Davis, WR, Titans: Quarterback Marcus Mariota's status remains in question, which means Blaine Gabbert will again be cast into the role of game manager for a run-heavy attack.


Washington even responded when absolutely necessary, overcoming mistakes. 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. "You've got to be able to respond".

"The heat and the adrenaline definitely helped, but it's just going to be something you've got to deal with for a while".

"Unfortunately, this league is going in a direction that a lot of people don't like".

The defense wasn't ideal, either.

START: Keelan Cole, WR, Jaguars: Leonard Fournette should return to the lineup, but it shouldn't keep Cole from having a solid encore performance after last week's seven-catch, 116-yard outing against the Patriots that included his first touchdown of the season.

On a rainy afternoon, the Redskins (2-1) moved out to leads of 14-0 and, at halftime, 28-10, by putting together TD drives of 74, 75, 79 and 98 yards. Crosby is a career 80.4% in field goals and owns a career long of 58 yards. The more big plays Smith needs to come up with, the more likely he is to struggle against an improving Green Bay defense. Jay Gruden also made a crucial challenge that killed a Packers' drive on fourth down. Redskins cornerback Josh Norman said. Rodgers was sacked four times and hit nine more times in that game.
