Packers vs. Washington History

Leader: Green Bay leads the series 19-15-1 in regular-season play and 2-1 in the playoffs.

Streak: The Packers snapped a two-game losing streak when they beat Washington 20-15 on Dec. 8, 2019. Green Bay has won the last five meetings at Lambeau Field. Washington’s last win came in 1988, a 20-17 verdict secured on Chip Lohmiller’s late field goal. Don Majkowski was 8-of-26 passing for Green Bay, with five of those completions to running backs and only two to Sterling Sharpe.

Last meeting: In that 2019 game, the Packers raced to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter on a 4-yard run by Aaron Jones and a 12-yard pass to Robert Tonyan. Mason Crosby made a pair of chip-shot field goals to hold off Washington, which scored on Adrian Peterson’s 2-yard run and Dwayne Haskins’ 13-yard pass to Terry McLaurin. Jones had 192 total yards and Kenny Clark had 1.5 sacks.

Adams Leads Packers in Pro Bowl Fan Vote

Only two Green Bay Packers are in the top five at their positions through two weeks of fan voting for the all-star game.

Washington: The Football Team signed veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick in free agency but he suffered a hip injury in the opener and is on injured reserve. Taylor Heinicke, who kept Washington competitive in last year’s playoffs against Tom Brady and the Buccaneers, is 23rd in passer rating (86.9) overall but has a mark of 107.5 on the road. He’s averaging more than 5 yards per carry but didn’t rush the ball last week vs. Kansas City. Coach Ron Rivera wants him to be more aggressive. “That's something we have to sit down and talk with Taylor about,” Rivera said on Monday. “Is he trying too much to stay in the pocket, too much to go through the progressions instead of being a little creative at times?”

Big-Play Potential

Washington’s got a tremendous defensive front, manned by four first-round picks. But its linebacker and defensive back groups are lacking, and opponents have taken advantage.

Coaches typically define an “explosive play” as a 12-yard run or 16-yard pass. No team has allowed more explosive passes than Washington’s 44. The Aaron Rodgers-led passing attack hasn’t been overly explosive, with its 31 explosive passes ranking 18th.

If you’re wondering how the Packers are 5-1 despite the lack of explosivity on offense and its persistent problems in the red zone, look no further than Joe Barry’s defense. Green Bay has allowed 36 explosive plays (14 runs, 22 passes). Only Buffalo (27) and San Francisco (31) have allowed fewer.

The Packers are plus-7 in The 33rd Team’s Big Play Index.
