The Redskins were a huge disappointment in Week 2. They faced the Indianapolis Colts who were coming off a rough loss to the Bengals. The Redskins looked like a beaten team early, and were never able to turn it around. They ended the day without scoring a TD, and losing 21-9. Not good Bob.
The pitchforks and torches have been out all week for Jay Gruden, Bruce Allen, and anyone else we want to blame that disaster on, but it's a new week and the show must go on. Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers are coming to town. Even with one good leg, Rodgers can be a problem for any defense. A defense who had major communication breakdowns like the Redskins did last week could be in big trouble.
The Redskins are also dealing with multiple injuries on the offensive line and at wide receiver this week. Shawn Lauvao is out with a calf injury so the team will start Tony Bergstrom at center and move Chase Roullier to LG. Brandon Scherff will wear a brace on his knee, and Trent Williams end Morgan Moses both have knee issues. Maurice Harris is trying to return from a concussion and Paul Richardson Jr. has knee and shoulder injuries.
The Redskins are 3 point underdogs in their second home game of the season.
