Green Bay Packers @ Washington Redskins for Wild Card Round



Who You Got?

Entering Sunday’s wild-card game, it’s the Redskins who are hot and the Packers who are stumbling. The Green Bay Packers have reached the postseason seven years in a row, winning the Super Bowl once. During that same time period, the Washington Redskins have made the playoffs twice, won 10 games once, and lost double-digit games five times. This season the Redskins may have a chance.

The Redskins(9-7) have won four straight, ending the regular season behind quarterback Kirk Cousins. He has been playing stupendously ever since that comeback against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in week 7 that resulted in the biggest comeback in Redskins’ franchise history. Cousins has thrown for 4,166 yards, breaking the record for single season passing yards in Redskins franchise history previously held by Jay Schroeder who set the record 30 years ago. Cousins has also thrown 29 touchdowns with only 11 interceptions. He has been named NFC player of the month for December. (You like that!?!?)

The Packers(10-6) started the season 6-0 and the offense was firing on all cylinders. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers was rolling and would’ve won the most valuable player award if the season ended after Week 6. But then the Denver Broncos came into the picture defeating the Green Bay Packers ending their six game winning streak.  Since then, the Packers posted a 4-6 record that included two consecutive losses to end the season. What really stung was a 20-17 home loss to Minnesota that ended their run of four straight NFC North division titles.

This playoff game will be the one to watch on Sunday!
