Packers go 5-1 with win against Redskins

The Green Bay Packers offense should be giving their defense a big shout out this morning because without them, the Packers would be sitting 4-2. Even though it was light, the rain fell continuously on Lambeau Field, making the ball slippery and heavy. Green Bay won over the Washington Redskins with a final score of 17-14. They got lucky. The hero in week one, Marcus Crosby had a tough day, missing two field goals. Cornerback Charles Woodson gave us fans something to cheer about in the third quarter scooping up a Redskins fumble and going the distance. Prior to this play, you could hear a pin drop at Lambeau.

I went to the Packers game with a friend who had never been. She definitely had a good time, but noted how different it felt than a game at Camp Randall watching the Wisconsin Badgers play. No complaints, just different. I think the weather was a big factor, slows the game down, which slows the fans down.

Now we sit with a bye week at a perfect time. Favre can rest and brush off the fact that he is now the NFL's all-time interception-throwing quarterback. You have to take the bad with the good, right?

I am sad to report that Justin Timberlake didn't make a repeat appearance at the Packers game this week. He was at the Packers Bears game on October 7th drinking Miller Lite with girlfriend Jessica Biel. He is crazy hot, though no #4.
