The Washington Redskins are hosting the Green Bay Packers in a week 11 showdown on Sunday Night Football. All the information to tune into this game is listed below.
The Washington Redskins are ready to make their move in the NFC. They can go a long way on Sunday night with a playoff revenge victory against the visiting Green Bay Packers. Can they solidify their place in NFC playoff picture? Here are 3 keys for a Redskins victory on Sunday.
Contain Aaron Rodgers
It is widely known throughout the league that Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers offense is not hitting on all cylinders. This is playing right into what the Washington Redskins want to do. They know that they are not going to be able to bottle up Rodgers 100%. They just hope that they can control and contain him. If they are able to keep in the pocket and force him to be uncomfortable, then they should be able to have some very good defensive success against the Packers offense.

Continue to Run, Run, Run
The Packers are the 4th ranked run defense in the league. This should not deter the Washington Redskins from running the football. Last week they faced the 8th ranked rush defense and were able to have tons of success in the run game. They need to continue to put pressure on defenses with a solid rushing attack. The emergence of Robert Kelley has most certainly played a strong role in the success of the Redskins ground attack. Ball control will keep the Packers off the field and your defense at rest. The run game will be a strong key Sunday Night
TDs not FGs
The Washington Redskins have had their issues inside the Red Zone this season. They must put this demon to rest on Sunday Night. The Redskins average 4 RZ scoring attempts per game. However, they are last in the league when it comes to scorings TDs inside the RZ (39%). They need to find ways to get the ball I the end zone. Offensive Coordinator, Sean McVay needs to get creative in his play calling. The same fade and crosses are not working. I would like to see more runs, rollouts, and read options down there. This would keep defenses off-balance and create more scoring opportunities.
The Washington Redskins are ready for primetime. They now need to show it. What was once looked upon as a dreadful second half schedule is now setting up very nicely. Keep your eye on this team in the remaining weeks of the season. It all begins for them on Sunday Night. ALWAYS HTTR!!!
