The Washington Redskins, in many ways, are the polar opposite of the Green Bay Packers.
While the Packers are one of the most consistent and stable franchises in football, the Redskins — to put it kindly — are not. The Packers have made the playoffs 13 times since 2000. The Redskins advanced to the postseason just four times during the same span.
Since 1992, Packers fans have enjoyed Hall of Fame quarterbacks Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers. In the last two seasons alone, the Redskins have started six different quarterbacks.
And while Redskins fans remain hopeful that rookie Dwayne Haskins might finally provide stability at the game’s most important position, Washington is just 3-9, while the Packers remain one of the NFC’s elite at 9-3.
While the Redskins actually managed to limit Rodgers’ effectiveness in this Week 14 matchup, they had no answers for Green Bay’s “other” Aaron — allowing running back Aaron Jones to rush for a season-high 134 yards on just 16 carries as they dropped their 10th game of the season.
