I will fast forward to the Packers having 1st & goal from the Redskins 5 yard line. (11:00 left in the 1st Qtr) It took them two complete minutes to score their only TD of the game, but then I see D. Lee leaving the sideline for the locker room without wearing his jersey…or pads... hmmm. (8:50 left in the 1st Qtr) He was later determined to be OUT with a shoulder injury. (Who touched him?)
To start the 2nd quarter, the Packers had 1st & Ten from the Redskins 20…Red Zone Time! (Oh no!) A mere 50 seconds later and it was 1st & Goal from the Redskins 9…Red Zone Alert Time! (Dayyyum!) No dice, on first down, the very strong Chris Wilson makes one helluva play. Second & Goal, NOPE! It is now 3rd & Goal from INSIDE the Redskins 1 yard line. A. Rodgers keeps the ball and gets zilch, zip, nada, nothing…not even a hair of movement of the ball. The Packers are thinking…scratching their heads…looking around… they take too long. They take a much needed time out. With all their wisdom, they decided to TRY to DISRESPECT my defense by going for it on 4th down…albeit 4th & inches from the goal line…but who did they think they were messing with? (12:16 left in the 2nd Qtr) [By the way 12:16 is always a GREAT time.] The Packers depart from their huddle and incomplete their pass; it was broken up by the very aptly positioned Lorenzo Alexander. GOAL LINE STANCE! Two field goals later by both teams and the score is Packers 10 – Redskins 3 at the half. I am getting all excited…again…just by typing this game recap...Focus Diva, focus!
