The Packers (3-3) are coming off a stunning home loss to the New York Jets in which they were outscored 24-7 in the second half and QB Aaron Rodgers logged a pedestrian 16.9 QBR. Green Bay was also outrushed 179-60. To get back on track in the nation’s capital, WR Allen Lazard, WR Romeo Doubs, and TE Robert Tonyan are going to have to help Rodgers out.
The Commanders (2-4) won ugly against the Chicago Bears last Thursday, but lost QB Carson Wentz to a broken finger. Backup Taylor Heinicke will step back into the fold in his absence. Washington is likely to lean on emerging rookie RB Brian Robinson Jr., who scored his first career touchdown in Week 6, less than two months after sustaining bullet wounds to his leg.
