According to Bleacher Report, Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers can do amazing plays for the team to win against the Redskins. Rodgers is one of the key players in the Packer's game last Sunday. The team was trailing 20-3 behind Minnesota Vikings in the fourth quarter, but he managed to rally the Packers to finish the game at 20-13.Even though they lost, he throwed nearly 300 yards after a slow start.
The 32-year-old quarterback also made a Hail Mary pass against the Detroit Lions last month. If he can improve his game in the Sunday's encounter, Green Bay has a big chance to win.
It is also interesting to note that Washington has not been to the postseason in a while, but Green Bay has reached the playoffs in seven consecutive years.
On other hand, Redskins are an underrated defensive team that should be able to get past Green Bay's patchy offensive line, Bleacher Report published. The team has also one of the best quarterbacks in NFL right now.
The Redskins greatly benefited from the improved performance of Kirk Cousins. His numbers at home this season were phenomenal. The quarterback completed nearly 75 percent of his passes there for 2,170 yards with 16 touchdowns and only two interceptions.
If Cousins played well and handled the playoff pressure to open up enough lanes for Alfred Morris and Matt Jones (if healthy) to establish a running game, the Redskins should win the game.
Sports analysts said this season's Green Bay team is completely different, and it has obvious weaknesses that the Redskins can exploit. Washington is the smart pick in the Sunday's matchup. The team has a quarterback that is playing at high level.
In betting trends, the Packers are 6-1-1 ATS in their last eight games against the Redskins.
