Sunday Night Football will be coming to you live from the Nation’s Capital this week. The struggling Green Bay Packers will be in town as they take on Kirk Cousins, Rob Kelley and the Washington Redskins. The Packers are on a losing streak, with last week’s loss to the Tennessee Titans now a part of that streak. The Redskins had better luck in week 10, as they won 26-20 in a win over the Minnesota Vikings.
The Packers have one of the most talented quarterbacks in the NFL. But their head coach continues to misuse him, and it has started to cause some tension in Green Bay. As a result, their play has been straight up poor, and their losing streak is evidence of that. The team is 1-4 in their last five games, and they recently signed running back Christine Michael in an effort to turn things around. Problem is they need to put more faith in quarterback Aaron Rodgers, and less on the run game if they want to start winning games again.
Now we get to the Redskins, who have had their fair share of ups and downs this season. While they won last week, it was against a struggling Vikings team. Prior to that they had a bye, which came after a loss and a tie out in London. Running back Rob Kelley has really emerged for them in the last few weeks, and he could certainly be the difference maker in this one. So while I do not love the Redskins as a whole, I do believe in Kelley. And given how poor Green Bay looked last week, I am of the belief they may be ready to go completely in the trash going forward.
