Packers vs. Redskins: Packers with 38-20 win over the Redskins behind Rodger's 480 yard performance

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

The Green Bay Packers, Cincinnati's next opponent, hopefully got all of the absurd passing yards out of their system.

Despite a fourth-quarter surge scoring 13 points, the Washington Redskins 18-point loss to the Green Bay Packers was actually much worse than it appeared. Considering that the Packers had secured a 31-0 lead with 8:16 remaining in the third quarter, the game was nothing more than a formality of the absurd.

Let's start with Aaron Rodgers posting a league-high 480 yards passing, four touchdowns and passer rating of 146.0. Twenty of his 34 completions targeted James Jones and Randall Cobb, who combined for 306 yards receiving. Jordy Nelson added 66 yards receiving but a game-high two touchdown receptions.

Robert Griffin III had a strong outing, but a little too late to make a difference. Washington's first seven possessions (excluding the knee at the end of the first half) resulted in five punts, an interception and missed field goal. It wasn't until the Packers took a 31-point led that the Redskins capped their possessions with touchdowns, likely the result of soft coverages forcing underneath throws on time-consuming possessions.

The Packers will head to Cincinnati next week at 1-1.
