Week 3: vs Green Bay Packers
FBG says: Neutral matchup. One might think the Redskins did not even have a rushing offense after the stat line they amassed last week as Redskins running backs combined for only 22 yards on 16 rushing attempts. After playing over half the snaps in Week 1, Adrian Peterson saw the field for only 34 percent of snaps last week as he was stifled all day by the Colts, managing only 20 rushing yards on 11 carries. The Redskins pretty much abandoned trying to use Chris Thompson on the ground as he was allotted four carries but only managed one yard with Thompson's production exclusively coming through the air. It was Jamison Crowder who led the team in rushing with 29 yards, most of which came from a trick play reverse to start the game. Peterson should be expected to continue manning this rushing offense, but after a Jekyll and Hyde opening to the season, it is tough to rely on him for consistent production. If the game script is there, Peterson can flourish. But with the presence of Chris Thompson, dampen expectations if the Redskins are in any way expected to get behind early. This week appears to be a situation stacking up for the latter as the Redskins are underdogs to the high-powered Packers offense. The Packers front seven kept Dalvin Cook quiet last week with just 38 rushing yards from 10 attempts. While it was a pass-heavy game, this defense shut down any attempt to get a ground game going. They allowed no rushing touchdowns and not a single run in the double-digit yardage mark. Interior linemen Mike Daniels and Kenny Clark dominated their individual matchups again while Muhammad Wilkerson also had a solid showing against the run. The Packers edge defenders made some improvements against outside runs, but their strength remains on the interior with some of the best run-defending interior defensive linemen in the league. This should be a relatively even matchup in the trenches with the stout interior of the Packers defensive line squaring off against one of the top run-blocking offensive lines in the league. What tilts this matchup will be if we see a repeat of Week 1 or Week 2 Adrian Peterson. The game script suggests the latter.
