For the second time in three weeks, the Packers are down big at halftime.

After 30 minutes of football in Landover, Maryland, the Green Bay Packers trail Washington by a score of 28-10.

The Packers allowed a pair of quick touchdowns in the first quarter, first on a long reception by Paul Richardson and then on a short run by Adrian Peterson. That made the score 14-0 at the end of the first quarter. After a Mason Crosby field goal, Washington scored again to make it 21-3.

Finally, the Packers found the end zone on a 64-yard pass from Aaron Rodgers to Geronimo Allison. Allison burned Josh Norman on the play, who appeared to be expecting safety help. The wide-open Allison hauled in the pass and scampered untouched to the end zone. However, Washington stormed right back to bring their lead back out to 18 points once again.

The Packers have dealt with a big halftime deficit once already this season, coming back from being down 17-0 at the half to the Bears in week one. Can they come back in this game? Follow along as we find out together.
