Kirk Cousins tosses TD late in first half vs. Packers

21 August 2017

The Packers now hold a 20-15-1 edge in the all-time series between the two teams, including an 18-14-1 advantage in regular season play.

To the delight of critics, the Packers flopped again the following week, losing 42-24 to the Redskins on the road, the first 4-game losing streak for the franchise since 2008.

In the end, the Redskins lost their second preseason game 21-17 when the Packers third string offense recorded another touchdown off a 23-yard scamper by Hill into the end zone. However, there is no need to hit the panic button yet as the regular season is still three weeks away. Derek Hart struggled at that position earlier in camp, before Green Bay re-signed Goode - a Packer from 2008-16.

US military head warns of 'difficult issues' with China
Despite their disagreements in the recent past over nuclear tests , China is North Korea's go-to friend when it comes to business. Seoul and Washington unveiled the plan, saying that it is meant to better defend against inbound missiles from North Korea.

"I just try to keep working to get towards the top, but I was blessed to make the 53 and do a lot on special teams". "No question about that". Redskins coach Jay Gruden kept Cousins, who celebrated his 29th birthday Saturday night, in for the entire first half. "He's going to be a big part of our offense". Washington started Terrell McClain, Ziggy Hood and Stacy McGee along the defensive line but Phil Taylor continued his push for the starting nose tackle job nonetheless.

After a poor showing in limited action against Baltimore, the first-team offense looked bad for a longer stretch against Green Bay at FedEx Field. The ex-Cal wide receiver muffed his first punt out of the gate against Washington. On that scoring drive, the offense didn't gain a yard. He doesn't have the arm strength to make himself a starter, even on the worst of teams most likely, but he could continue to be someone who is challenging for a spot on an National Football League roster. He completed a 43-yard pass to Vernon Davis, a flawless downfield strike. He did, and looked sharp - throwing a touchdown pass and going 6-of-8 for 37-yards. Aaron Jones, a fifth-round selection out of Texas-El Paso had no yards on two carries.

Backup Colt McCoy finished 7-of-11 for 70 yards and a touchdown pass to Niles Paul placed perfectly over Paul's back shoulder where only the tight end's outstretched arms could reach it.

Professor: History of statues informs whether to remove them
Hundreds of white supremacists descended on the historic Virginia town on August 11 and 12 to protest the Lee statue's removal. The incident drew a lot of eyeballs as Roof was displayed in pictures after the attack posing with the Confederate flag.

Cousins said his "internal clock" was off. Gruden described his QB as "a little antsy". "We stuttered and sputtered and missed a few throws". Perine showed excellent outside running ability and was able to run over several defenders en route to eight carries and 45 yards.

It's no shock that Cousins and his receivers aren't sharp. Each has one catch through two games. The problem seems even greater because Reed isn't available. This could be the most important things to focus on when it comes to this preseason tilt. When he's not available, it won't be as easy to turn to the next man up. He appears to now be in full health and can contribute to the passing game. It was more discouraging to watch the run game provide nothing. "A good run-pass mix".

Scores and results of Packers vs Redskins will be posted here after the game. The stuff you see on the field is the stuff we see at practice and you guys see it during training camp. "We just didn't have that personnel grouping consistently, and 12 personnel is a grouping that if you can use it effectively - you see how New England used it a year ago with Marty and [Rob Gronkowski] - it's tough to stop".
