Washington Redskins vs Green Bay Packers will be one of the biggest games of the day in Week 2 of the NFL 2013 football season as two of the best teams in the league face off to claim an early season advantage. The game is scheduled to start at 1 p.m. ET and can be watched online through live stream (details below).
These two teams gave legitimate Super Bowl potential this season, and that's what makes this match up one not to miss. However, surprisingly both teams lost in Week 1, which significantly raises the stakes for today's game.
For the winners, they will to an extent have gotten their season back on track at 1-1, but for the losers, a 0-2 start to the season is disastrous and the pressure really would be on to go on a long win streak to counter the poor start.
The Packers, to their credit, put up a fierce fight against the San Francisco 49ers last week, but ultimately fell short, losing 28-34. That will have disappointed them as they did take a 4 point lead midway through the fourth quarter. But ending the game by giving up 10 unanswered points to the 49ers ended their hopes.
Colin Kaepernick threw for 412 yards and three touchdowns, and was amazingly efficient at finding Anquan Boldin and Vernon Davis, among others, all over the field.
Dom Capers will have been working all week with his defensive staff to ensure their unit is not so overwhelmed again this week.
Robert Griffin III was of course returning from a knee injury, and his presence was a massive boost, however, things did not go as he hoped, and he looked a little out of sorts and out of full match fitness.
Both teams need a win badly today, and that will make today's game extremely exciting for fans.
