Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers Absolutely Trounce Washington Redskins
Aaron Rodgers wasted no time in reminding Robert Griffin III that he is the hands-down greatest active NFL quarterback.
The Week 2 match-up between the Green Bay Packers and Washington Redskins turned into a complete laugher early on, as Rodgers chucked three first-half touchdown passes to put his Pack on top 24-0 at the break. The Packers actually should have been up 31-0 at half if WR James Jones didn’t fumble the ball out of the end-zone while trying to reach for another TD with just seconds remaining.
Unfortunately for the Packers’ already questionable backfield, rookie RB Eddie Lacy was forced to exit the contest with a concussion following his first carry. But Rodgers made good-and-sure not to let this bang-up hamper his Pack attack in any sort of way. But most notably, Packers backup RB James Starks, who barely even made the squad this season, filled in beautifully, breaking off 132 rushing yards and a touchdown on 20 carries.
Rodgers put up a ‘Madden-esque’ stat-line, passing for an incredibly ridiculous 480 yards and 4 touchdowns, with zero turnovers in the 38-20 victory.
While RGIII again attempted a furious comeback at the end of this one, just like on Monday night against the Philadelphia Eagles, the game was already well in-the-books. Griffin will need to actually produce out of the gate if he wishes to do anything this season in a stacked NFC East.
With Rodgers still playing at an absolutely extraordinary level, the Pack really has nothing to worry about if Lacy is forced to miss further action, but I sincerely doubt that will be the case. Look for the rookie to return next week, completely unaffected by the Week 2 headache.
There a very few NFL players who can strap a team on their shoulders and plow into the playoffs single-handedly, but fortunately for the Pack, Rodgers is the epitome of ‘that guy’.
