After sitting through three other NFL games this weekend, it is finally time for the Green Bay Packers to take the field. Today they are visiting Washington at FedEx Field, facing the NFC East champs with a date in the Divisional Round on the line.

Washington's pass rush should be a major challenge for the Packers' banged-up offensive line, but if they give Aaron Rodgers some time to throw there should be opportunities for the passing game. Meanwhile, the Packers should be able to establish the run against a Washington defense that has struggled in that area.

On the other side of the ball, Kirk Cousins is red-hot, and will look to maintain his recent success against a Packers secondary that once again is missing starting cornerback Sam Shields. Look for Jay Gruden's team to try to attack the Packers' rookie cornerbacks with their veteran receivers, as well as trying to use the middle of the field with tight end Jordan Reed.
