GREEN BAY – It was a frustrating day on offense, but the Packers did just enough to defeat the Redskins, 20-15, on Sunday at Lambeau Field.

With their 10th win, the Packers (10-3) stayed one game ahead of Minnesota (9-4) in the NFC North race.

Leading by just eight points late, the Packers put together a 14-play, 74-yard drive that consumed nearly half of the fourth-quarter clock and made it a two-score game again, 20-9. Green Bay had jumped on top early in the game, 14-0, but blew several scoring opportunities on offense as the day unfolded.

Washington came back with a late touchdown but missed the two-point conversion, and then WR Davante Adams recovered the onside kick for the Packers to seal the game.

RB Aaron Jones was the offensive star of the game, rushing 16 times for a season-high 134 yards and a touchdown, his 12th rushing TD of the season and 15th score overall. Jones also led the Packers in receiving yards with 58 on six receptions for 192 total yards from scrimmage.

QB Aaron Rodgers was 18-of-28 for 195 yards with a TD pass to TE Robert Tonyan. Rodgers posted a 96.6 passer rating. Adams added four catches for 41 yards.

For Washington, RB Adrian Peterson had 20 carries for 76 yards, and RB Derrius Guice had five carries for 42 yards before leaving in the second quarter with a knee injury.

Rookie QB Dwayne Haskins finished 16-of-27 for 170 yards with one TD and one INT for a 74.6 rating. WR Terry McLaurin caught the TD pass and had four catches for 57 yards.
