The Redskins stormed the Packers early, and had a great 1st half. They spent most of the 2nd half holding off Aaron Rodgers and the Packers.

The Redskins got a late turnover when Fabian Moreau stripped the ball from Randall Cobb in the 4th quarter. We had a lot of firsts today, DaRon Payne had his first sack in the NFL, Jonathan Allen had his first(and second) sack of the year, and Alex Smith threw his first pick of the year.

Final stat lines:

Alex Smith: 12 for 20, 220 yards, 2 TDs, 1 INT

Adrian Peterson: 19 carries for 120 yards, 2 TDs

Chris Thompson: 6 carries for 17 yards
