Washington Redskins vs. Green Bay Packers Preview, Tips and Odds

One of Rodgers' many strengths is his mobility and knack for extending plays with his legs when the pocket breaks down. I had more faith in the defenses than I should have. The headline grabber was a roughing the passer call against Clay Matthews. In one of those games, he touched the ball one time - granted it was on the game-winning 20-yard run in overtime against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

On the other side, former first-round picks Michael Floyd and Breshad Perriman were added to the previously underachieving receiving core in Washington on Tuesday. Home underdogs were money. He would like to practice at least once this week to get ready for Washington. Vegas has adjusted accordingly and begun setting its lines differently. Do not wager any money you do not have and do not take anything I say here or in the future as fact. I do not encourage gambling.

They will take on the Saints in New Orleans for a Monday night game on October 8. I think multiple scores wouldn't surprise anybody. The Packers traded for Antonio Morrison from the Colts to help with depth at inside linebacker after Burks went down. Cobb has ended three drives-two drops and one fumble. If the Packers are going to be scoring into the 30's as I expect, then all it'll take for Washington to help hit the over is two touchdowns. Burton started this season on the Falcons' practice squad, but was elevated to the active roster last Wednesday and appeared on defense and special teams in Week 1. He has been a winning quarterback over the course of his National Football League career, but critics maintain he is not going to beat you by throwing 35 times a game or by getting the ball downfield on big plays.
