Both the Washington Redskins and Green Bay Packers suffered disappointing defeats last week and both are looking to rebound with their first win of the season.
The Packers have the difficult task of trying to stop another mobile quarterback in Robert Griffin III. Last week Colin Kaepernick owned the defense throwing the ball for 412 yards and 3 touchdowns plus he carried the ball 7 times for 22 yards.
“When you’re playing a quarterback that has those kinds of talents and can move around and has a strong arm, you’ve got to be able to (stop) both (aspects of his game),” Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers said, via ESPN. “We played one phase well, we didn’t play the other phase well enough.”
“He’s a mobile quarterback that has the ability to stretch the defense,” Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said. “He has the ability to make plays in space and he can make all the throws. In any Mike Shanahan offense, it starts with running the football.”
Mike Shanahan isn’t quite as confident and when discussing his run game said, “what running game?”
