Wild Card Playoffs: Top 3 performance moments

Posted Jan 11, 2016

A quick glance at the highlights from Packers vs. Redskins


RODGERS-TO-COBB GETS PACKERS ON THE BOARD

Trailing 11-0 in the second quarter, the Packers hadn’t had much go right. But a handful of plays after a 34-yard completion to WR James Jones got the offense going, QB Aaron Rodgers caught the Redskins offside and with 12 men on the field. He used the free play to fire a 12-yard TD pass to WR Randall Cobb, and the Packers were on their way to scoring 17 straight points before halftime to take the lead.

NEAL GETS SACK-FUMBLE-RECOVERY

On Washington’s next possession, the Redskins had just crossed midfield when Packers LB Mike Neal buried QB Kirk Cousins for a sack and knocked the ball loose. Neal recovered the fumble himself, setting up the offense near midfield, and the Packers turned the turnover into a field goal.

LACY CONVERTS ON FOURTH DOWN, THEN RUMBLES FOR 30 YARDS TO SET UP TD

In the third quarter, with the Packers trailing, 18-17, RB Eddie Lacy converted on fourth-and-1 with an 11-yard run. One play later, Lacy took another handoff, found a cutback lane and was suddenly in the open field. It became a season-long 30-yard run down to the Washington 4-yard line, and RB James Starks took it in on the next play to give the Packers the lead for good.
