Redskins Roll Past Pack On Primetime Stage

The Washington Redskins needed a big win on Sunday Night Football to keep pace with the top teams in their division. They were able to do just that, picking up a statement win over the reeling Green Bay Packers, 42-24.

The Redskins topped the Packers thanks to 375 and 3 touchdowns from quarterback Kirk Cousins, and 137 yards from running back Robert Kelley, who also tallied 3 touchdowns of his own. After starting the season 0-2, the Redskins have gone 6-1-1 in their last 8 games.

The Packers gave up 42 points to the Redskins one week after giving up 47 points. Despite their defensive woes, quarterback Aaron Rodgers put up decent numbers, throwing for 351 yards and 3 touchdowns.

The Redskins put the game away late, and that had social media abuzz about the Redskins offense and the subpar Packers defense.
