Packers 24, Washington 10: 2-minute drill

Green Bay has won six straight games following a 24-10 win over Washington on Sunday at Lambeau Field.

Game Balls

Offense: Aaron Rodgers

The offense wasn’t hitting on all cylinders, but Rodgers was still effective. He threw three more touchdowns, including one on a vintage effort to Davante Adams while on the run and throwing back across his body to hit his favorite target.

Since the season opener in which he did not throw a touchdown and threw two interceptions, Rodgers has 15 touchdowns and just one pick in Green Bay six-game winning streak.

Defense: Rashan Gary

The former first-round pick has been getting pressure much of the season, but the sacks were not there. They showed up Sunday, with Gary picking up two of the Packers four sacks on the day. He made one of the biggest plays of the game early in the second half, coming around tackle Charles Leno to strip quarterback Taylor Heinicke of the ball. Green Bay was able to recover and would score a touchdown a few plays later to take a 14-point lead and Washington would never get closer on the scoreboard the rest of the day.

In Case You Missed It

— Linebacker Preston Smith was inactive for the game due to an oblique injury. It was the first game of his career he has missed, snapping his streak of consecutive games played at 102.

— Cornerback Kevin King missed his second straight game with a shoulder injury. Veteran Rasul Douglas started in his place.

— Sunday was National Tight Ends Day (yes, it is a thing). Green Bay’s Robert Tonyan celebrated by having his best game of the season, catching four passes for 63 yards and a touchdown.

Fellow tight end Marcedes Lewis also had a season-high three catches for 31 yards.

— Outside linebacker Whitney Mercilus made his debut after signing with the team on Tuesday. He was used as a pass rusher and made his presence felt in the backfield several times.

Inside the Numbers
