Packers lose four key players, game to Redskins

The Packers lost many of their best players to injury on Sunday, and then they lost to the Redskins in overtime 16-13.

Tight end Jermichael Finley was carted off the field with a knee injury early in the game.  His backup Donald Lee also left the game with an injury. Defensive tackle Ryan Pickett left with an ankle injury and didn’t return.  But the injury that seemed to sap the team most was linebacker Clay Matthews’ hamstring injury in the second half. 

After Matthews’ injury, the Redskins finally started to move the ball.  The Redskins scored ten points in the fourth quarter, including a 48-yard touchdown to Anthony Armstrong.  Still, the Packers offense had a chance to win in overtime.

They punted on their first possession and Aaron Rodgers threw an interception on the second possession.  Washington moved the ball 24 yards, largely on penalties, to set up Graham Gano’s 33-yard game winner.

The Redskins and Packers are both 3-2, but they certainly feel different about their records.  Washington is finding a way to win ugly and beat expectations.  The Packers have two losses against a very soft schedule, and their offense hasn’t been as explosive as expected.

And the losses to injury on Sunday could prove far more important than blowing the lead in Washington.

    Karma and reality sucks doesnt it Packers!? How many more of your guys are going to go down with injuries!? SO GLAD Woodson got called on his PI. Discipline…discipline!
    As ive said many times before. Get ready for the rollercoaster that is your season which is headed straight down the toilet faster than McCarthy at a buffet!

    McCarthy’s formula for success: Start seasons (and games) ugly. Commit lots of penalties, and have consistently horrible special teams. Abandon the run. Play down to the competition and let bad teams hang around.

  8. dr4iz says: Oct 10, 2010 4:59 PM

    You can’t win by cheating. It was defensive holding. It was defensive pass interference. Enjoy your week loser fans.

  9. CsanBoySmith says: Oct 10, 2010 4:59 PM

    McCarthy is garbage! The Offense comes out of the gate blazing and minute by minute by got progressively worse. The Pack are going to get battered by he Vikes again this year, FML

  10. Majik Bullet says: Oct 10, 2010 4:59 PM

    And the master of overtime choking strikes again. Nice work, Aaron, at least it wasn’t a fumble-punt…

  11. Favrelous says: Oct 10, 2010 4:59 PM

    I think the players are pretending to get hurt. They are desperate to leave Green Bay, a small nothing to do town filled with retarded hillbillies.
    If this loss hurts pack fans, they can just remember how great it was to be pre season champs.
    Rodgers has no big game wins.

  12. IKNOWALL says: Oct 10, 2010 5:01 PM

    Quarterback throws late interception to lose game———————-Farv, er I mean Rodgers.
    I am sure glad we Vikings have Brett, not Aaron,
    cannot wait until we beat them twice this year.
    Later!

  13. skijumper says: Oct 10, 2010 5:01 PM

    SuperBowl contender? Hardly! Lack of motivation – crappy playing calling. This team should be undefeated – It looks like they’ll be lucky to have a winning season!

  14. Mooch says: Oct 10, 2010 5:03 PM

    Shanahan must’ve bought some voodoo dolls. None of the hits to the Eagles were cheap or dirty, not sure if any of today’s were.

  15. Calistin says: Oct 10, 2010 5:04 PM

    Damn. Too many injuries, dropped balls, penalties, and pressure. Rodgers played alright but made some bad throws due to pressure.
    In a word: Turbul.
    Packers better get something going, there season is going down faster than a Viking fan on Favre.
    Hope Clay and Co. injuries aren’t too serious. Finley looks the worst. Hate to lose him, but Quarless filled in halfway decent, but he lacks a lot of polish.

    Wow… the Redskins really put an alley beatdown on the Packers today. Not so much by the score but by spanking many of their players to the bench. Here come the EXCUSES why the Vikings will crush them again….injuries

  18. Real Football Fan says: Oct 10, 2010 5:05 PM

    They can’t run the ball….Rodgers is good, but he isn’t good enough to operate at an elite level without any running game like Peyton Manning does. Also, their defense has some huge holes, especially if that hamstring injury to Matthews is serious.

  19. MagicMan407 says: Oct 10, 2010 5:05 PM

    You suck Greg homo! The hate you have towards the Redskins just makes it even more worth it when I make your wife moan all night long!

  20. Crigs says: Oct 10, 2010 5:07 PM

    This is definitely a disappointing loss but I can’t be completely pissed off considering the circumstances.
    The Packers base defense is basically their nickel package because they play it 80% of the game and they only had 4 of 11 starters playing the second half. Then on offense after already losing Grant earlier obviously, they lose both Finley and Lee in the first quarter. The #1 and #2 TE’s.
    The way the game unfolded makes you think they should have won but being without Grant, Tauscher, Barnett, Burnett, Chillar, Bigby, Harris, and Shields for the entire game. Losing Pickett, Finley, and Lee in the first quarter. And losing Matthews in the third quarter was just too much to overcome. I’m actually surprised they took it to overtime with a pre-season type roster today.

  21. SemperfiSkins says: Oct 10, 2010 5:07 PM

    Can’t you say anything nice about the Redskins? Sure, Green Bay suffered some injuries, but who caused them? The Skins’ have been physical all year….just ask Dez Bryant, Andre Johnson, Vick …..you get the point.
    But, like you, I hope everyone looks at the Skins as a “soft” team.
    Sometimes it is good to be the underdog.

  22. tig 0 bitties says: Oct 10, 2010 5:11 PM

    Donavan played just pitiful today. inaccurate all day. wow did the pack get slaughtered with injuries today. wonder how serious all these injuries are? Charles Woodson is a good player but he does pass interfere alot and he got called for it today. sad thing is he sits and bitches like a woman when he gets called too. i thought he was gonna get a flag cuz he was yellin so much. If your a pack fan hopefully clay isn’t out for any future time. he is a great player and the defense isn;t the same without him. Hopefully this will bring sum of the arrogant packer fans that promised they would win and the vikes lose this week down to earth a bit. Has it ever crossed your mind that the vikes could actually win tomrow? what will you do then if that happens?

  23. oxycode30 says: Oct 10, 2010 5:11 PM

    Gosh golly gee, that’s just terrible…
    Meanwhile the Bears are 4-1 and alone atop the NFC North so there is a gawd after all! Bring on Seattle!

    “The Packers have two losses against a very soft schedule, and their offense hasn’t been as explosive as expected.”
    In 2008 and 2009 the Pack was the “preseason favorite” and we all know how that ended, just like 2010 is going to end. The comparisons of AR and BF need to stop, in 3 seasons AR is like 18-20, no playoff wins, no division titles but he sure is a good stats QB. While AR isn’t a Peyton Manning or an Eli Manning, he does kind of take after the ole’ man, Archie….all stats and nothing to show for it…….and lastly, I haven’t been keeping track but how’s the comparison between AR and BF for interceptions and fumbles that were the reason for a loss???? AR is starting to add up with those stats too and he’s only played 3 years. As confucious said, “those who live in the past, have nothing to look forward to in the present or the future” LOL

  29. youngbillbob says: Oct 10, 2010 5:21 PM

    What happened to all the packer fans talking trash? Favre is in some trouble and all you seagulls were squawking. Sorry about the injuries, no one likes to see that and it can happen at any point but you packer fans always seem to set the class bar to a new low.
    The nfc north is not that good this year. Period.

  30. PackFaninPackLand says: Oct 10, 2010 5:21 PM

    A 20-18 Record now for Mr. Rodgers lifetime inc. playoffs.
    Terrible pass by Rodgers in OT for the Int. after throwing yet another terrible pass in the previous possession in OT that should have been picked, and yet, the fawning Wisconsin Sports Media will never say a discouraging word about “The Golden Child”.
    Of course had those same 2 passes, or the 2 int’s Rodgers threw last week had been thrown by Favre, there’d be no end to the stories this week about Favre and his bad decision making, but, since it’s The Golden Child, nary a word will be written by our beloved, Rodgers adoring Wisconsin Sports media this week. Print or talk show.
    I defy fellow Packer fans to name a big game Rodgers has won for us. Cowboys last year ? Hardly, the “D” won that one. The Colts in 2008 ? Sorry, but Manning’s Int’s cost the game for the Colts that day.
    Seriously, name a game Rodgers has gone out and won for us ??? Hell, name a key drive he’s ever made at the end of the game over a decent opponent ???
    But, the Rodgers apologists will cry about penalties, or defense or whatever, because it’s NEVER Rodgers’s fault !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  31. Beer Cheese Soup says: Oct 10, 2010 5:22 PM

    With neither team able to run consistently due to injuries and poor backups, just imagine the difference a quality RB would have made for the Packers.
    Can we please fire Ted now please? This is obviously only going to get worse.

  32. packerhater28 says: Oct 10, 2010 5:22 PM

    About time the Packers even things out .They always play teams who have major starters out like once again today , no Haynsworth or Portis.When it’s even out like today then the pack have no shot.The Vikings had 2 corners out and a starting WR and lost to playoff teams (one is a superbowl champ) the pack lose to the Redskins lol and should of lost to the Lions as well.What a pethedic team the Packers are.

  33. CHIEF ZEE says: Oct 10, 2010 5:23 PM

    Clay Matthews has to be juicing…there is no way that any human being could play with so much physicality.

  34. Steelfloor says: Oct 10, 2010 5:25 PM

    Aaron Rodgers suffered concussion on the final offensive play when he threw interception. He was not made available to media after game.

  35. vikings rule says: Oct 10, 2010 5:25 PM

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  36. Mrsteve says: Oct 10, 2010 5:26 PM

    Clay Matthews was really playing well until he hurt his hamstring.
    Then he’s standing on the sidelines in 78 degree weather with a knit hat on. WTF?
    Oh yeah & Aaron Rodgers cute little skip after the TD. At least he didn’t do the stupid belt thing.
    When is this dude going to come out of the closet already.

  37. Pervy xx says: Oct 10, 2010 5:27 PM

    Aaron “The Great Pretender” Rodgers can never win when the game is on the line…..It must really hurt him that he had to watch Brett”The Meat Man” Favre make so many comebacks….
    Rodgers will never be a winner…cling to your Meat Man memories Puker fans…

  40. TheBaySay says: Oct 10, 2010 5:32 PM

    A game the Packers had no business losing, but:
    – As usual, they play to the level of the competition.
    -No rhythm to the play calling after the first quarter.
    – Atrocious special teams coaching and play: Gunners running five yards past the returner, players running on or off the field at the last second, (Rodgers had to do the counting on one play when he wasn’t even on the field for McCarthy and Slocum), and rotating two kickoff returners.
    – Numerous drops by receivers.
    – Offensive line play that deteriorated as the game went on.
    – And of course the injuries. I think we were playing our assistant equipment manager before the game ended. The injury report will tell the tale as to whether there’s hope yet for the season.

  41. Gravy Makes Sconnies Fatter says: Oct 10, 2010 5:33 PM

    i tried to warn you pcker fans. i told you that the pckers aren’t very good and erin always chokes in big games. let’s be honest, here he is in his 6th year and he doesn’t look close to winning his first playoff game ever. so don’t pretend he’s gonna somehow turn into a favre with super bowl ring, multiple mvp’s, etc.
    and seriously, is there a worse coach in the nfc than fatty mcfatfat???
    this is EXACTLY what i predicted on this site. i said 8-8 for the pckers and i marked down the bears game as a loss, i said the pckers would BARELY beat the lions, and they would lose to the skinss.
    over and over, i begged you to listen, but you wouldn’t, so please don’t come running to me crying “oh gravy, why didn’t you WARN us how hard the pckers suck!!!”
    the worst part is you guys just finished the cake part of your schedule. from here on in it’s gonna be ugly.

  44. footballrulz says: Oct 10, 2010 5:39 PM

    No cheap or dirty hits at all. Just bad coaching on GB’s part. Like CBS says, they come out blazing and then just fizzle out altogether.
    Can’t explain all the injuries but it is part of the game. Personally I think it is a lack of discipline on the defenses part–they just seem to go out and throw themselves around rather than play a controlled, gap schemed defense.
    Lots and lots of problems on this team that are consistently wrong. No killer instinct, terrible play calling (run 3 times on the goal line), etc. The players are gouing to give up on this scheme if things do not get corrected and I have a sad, sad feeling they will not. Not with McMuffin at the helm.
    Not looking good for the Pack at all but fortunately the NFC North is in a power shift so they could possibly gel by season’s end. Depends a lot on how severe todays injuries are and how the Vikes do tomorrow nite. Chicago & Detroit fans–be proud. Things are turning in your favor currently. (Of course beating Carolina & St Louis is nothing to crow over but you are exceeding expectations). Vikes & Packers–not so much

  45. Gravy Makes Sconnies Fatter says: Oct 10, 2010 5:39 PM

    pcker fans are always coming up to me and saying “gravy, is the problem with the pckers more that we have a retarded coach, a tightwad g.m. who refuses to use free agency-trades, or is it that we’re just victims of karma and the favre curse since we traded him away????”
    and i always answer “excellent question. all of those are factors in the pckers horribly mediocre record of 2 winning seasons and 1 playoff win in packasaurass ted’s 6 seasons as g.m. but as far as their deathfall from 13-3 and the nfc championship game in favre’s last season to 0 division titles, 0 playoff wins and about .500 w-l record since favre left… definitely karma and the favre curse. all those injuries are happening for a reason.”

  46. Crigs says: Oct 10, 2010 5:39 PM

    You Favre lovers and Vikings fans love to talk about Favre being clutch. The guys 4-8 in the playoffs since the loss to the Broncos in the Super Bowl and he has 21 TD’s and 23 TO’s in the playoffs since than as well.
    If stats don’t matter and only wins do then Favre’s only 4-8 in the last 12 years and if stats matter along with wins, Favre has two more turnovers than touchdowns in the last 12 years. Great numbers for you, huh?

  47. Mrlombardi says: Oct 10, 2010 5:40 PM

    At least now that half the Packers D are injured the Vikes should have a chance to win the NFC north.
    Speaking of choking, did any od you Viking fans remember last years NFC championship game? Or perhaps the other 5 NFC championship games they choked……or the 4 Superbowls.

  48. Kavorka says: Oct 10, 2010 5:40 PM

    Bears are winning ugly but they are winning some tough ones. Vikings???? Lions somewhat competitive for a change. With the Packers underperforming to hype and now these injuries, the hardware stores in Cheeseland are going to see a run on paint thinner from their fans.

  53. Crigs says: Oct 10, 2010 5:49 PM

    Mr. Humble, if you’re gonna use stats then at least get them right. You always falsify stats to fit your point.
    Rodgers is 20-17 not 18-20 and he and Favre have basically the same exact record through their first 37 games. I believe Favre was also either 20-17 or 21-16. And you guys need to quit blaming Rodgers for not having a playoff win.
    The Packers offense and Rodgers tore up the Cardinals. It was the Packers defense that lost the game. How does that fall on Rodgers especially considering he had 3 face masks that weren’t called including the last play of the game which was his fumble.

    Aaron Rodgers is great GB. The dude plays well.
    The Vikings would love to have him.
    That being said, I am sure glad the Pack lost, whew.
    The Vikings picked the perfect year to start 1-2.
    The Bears are going to hit the wall.
    The Vikings will show tomorrow if they are back in the race or if it’s down too Pack vs Bears.
    I think it will be 3 team race with the Vikings gelling & becoming the elite because they had all the injuries to start the year & the Bears & Packers are just getting them now.

  65. Little Tommy says: Oct 10, 2010 6:26 PM

    Before we induct Aaron Rodgers into the HOF as all the commentators seem to want to do, COULD HE PLEASE WIN A GAME AT CRUNCH TIME. He’s yet to do that and he’s yet to win a playoff game. God I’m sick of hearing about how fantastic he is. Stats be damned, you need to show you can win a close one at the end!

    If this had been Favre, the headline would have been, “Favre’s INT Gives Redskins OT Win”. But when Rodgers throws an INT to set up the winning FG, the headline is “OT Loss Comes After Key Players Leave With Injuries.”
    How come Rodgers gets excused when he does the same thing that Favre gets criticized for?

    It didn’t take very long to read the comments in this thread when the majority of them are from recognized Viking trolls. Just skip over the troll comments and look for some rational comments. Hard to beat a team with that many injuries to key players. Things could be worse… we could have a QB who is sweating out a possible suspension for sexually harassing young ladies by texting nude photos of himself. This too shall pass.

  74. Sociofan says: Oct 10, 2010 6:55 PM

    The absolute irony of Packer fans whining about a defensive interference call. How many times did they completely tackle a Skins’ receiver before the ball arrived and avoid the flag? It was becoming ridiculous.
    Poor Pack. Better luck next week.

    Before we induct Aaron Rodgers into the HOF as all the commentators seem to want to do, COULD HE PLEASE WIN A GAME AT CRUNCH TIME. He’s yet to do that and he’s yet to win a playoff game.
    ********************
    very solid point. what he does in his bedroom is his own business but on the field he’s in his 6th season and he’s what, a couple games over .500??? with no division titles, no playoff wins, and he’s choked in every big game he’s played in??? good god.

    “McManBoobs might be calling on Flynn soon.”
    with the nfl’s new concussion rule, McObscenelyFat&Dumb will have no choice but to start flynn next week. plus, the pckers are just about to start the killer part of their schedule and they still haven’t beaten a winning team, the only teams they beat were like 2-10 at the start of the day.
    if you could’ve told a pcker fan at the end of 2007 when they lost in overtime of the nfc title game and looked just a few missing pieces from a super bowl that 3 years later favre would be gone and they would have gone 20-17 with no nfcn titles and no playoff wins, they probly would’ve driven a wooden stake into ted thompson’s heart.

    IKNOWALL is no Packer fan. He is a typical bandwagon jumper that loves whatever team is winning and trashes them when they lose. I work with this guy and the past few years he has been seen wearing Giants, Colts, Steelers and Saints jerseys. What a joke and embarrassement. He is the laughing stock of the office!!
    Right, IKNOWALL, or should I call you Craig?!!?!?

  78. IBleedDCRed says: Oct 10, 2010 7:49 PM

    Yeah, McNabb was really Pathetic today wasn’t he??? 357 yards passing is just sad isn’t it????? I wish the Skins had a good quarterback!!!!!………. I’m so sick of all the haters and excuses for the Redskins winning. They are looking better every week and are surpassing my expectations for this season so far. I for one, am proud of them and I was as happy as a fat kid in a candy store when all the Packer fans carried their Cheesehead sh!t talking butts out of the bar down here in Richmond today…and while I’m on a bit of a rant, I may as well say that im sick of PFT making excuses for the Skns winning as well. They’re physcial as hell right now, and they’re gonna hurt your guys, but that’s not to be used as a “reason” that the Pack lost. Give the Skins SOME credit. Say what you want to say about my opinion, but my Skins Earned that win today!

    So, Favre’s other playoff victories somehow don’t count???
    Good Lord – where do you people come from???

    To coin a phrase by the late John McKay, how do I feel about the execution of the Packers offense? I’m all for it. They gave this game away. This is a troubling trend to reack up yardage early and fail to get points. Dropped passes were a killer. hang on to a few of those and we extend drives and keep the Skins O off the filed. The Packers should have won today but they definitely did not deserve to.

  81. packers4life says: Oct 10, 2010 8:46 PM

    I am trying to understand why the hell are Viking ‘fans’ talking trash? Last time I checked, your time was 1-2 while the Packers are 3-2.
    Man I can’t wait until I read Tuesday’s headline “Vikes get blown out by Jets”

  82. Pervy xx says: Oct 10, 2010 9:00 PM

    I love the Packers and their fans…..we all need some chuds to pick on….

  83. footballrulz says: Oct 10, 2010 9:04 PM

    Well, glad to see one thing. More Vike fans on here talking s**t than worried Pack fans. Hope that means something.
    Of course one has to take into account that when Gravy/contra shows up that accountsfor at least 25% of the posts–guaranteed-book it–write it down–you heard it here first.

    footballrulz, i’ve begged you to stay on your meds but you never listen and then next thing we know you’re rambling again on about conspiracies and everybody being one person sent by Satan to annoy you and robots trying to steal your luggage. I’m gonna talk to your keepers about doing a better job of keeping an eye on you and looking after you.
    p.s. best of luck next week at the world seniors para-shuffleboard competition at sun city.

    This game could have gotten ugly, but the Skins held on for a good win. Redskins benefited from Clay Matthews getting injured, but if your starters can hardly stay on the field, then they shouldn’t be starters in the NFL. Jermichael Finley tripped on his shoelaces and got carted off the field…ridiculous. Aaron Rodgers doesn’t have the killer instinct, McNabb does. That’s all there is to it.

    I couldn’t disagree more. I don’t want credit from any idiot. We like being the underdog. We don’t need praise from bandwagon chumps who didn’t pick us week after week. It makes the W’s that much sweeter. I’ve listened to all the losing fans everyweek say “They didn’t beat us we beat ourselves” or some other lame crap. The fact is Many of your players will be receiving extra treatment from the medical staff after playing us. We keep that training staff busy. So on the Indy….Hail!

  88. iheartredskins says: Oct 10, 2010 11:14 PM

    The Redskins are “a very soft schedule”? Let LaRon Landry lay you out just once and then tell me how soft they are. They may be giving up some yards, but NO team in the NFL is playing as physical bloody-your-nose football as the Redskins are…and they are finding ways to win.
    Find another adjective to describe the Redskins. Their play may not always be the prettiest, but I challenge you to name a tougher, more physical team.

    @Redskinsfansince82
    I dont need credit either, but give credit when credit’s due. The Skins played a good game today and still get sh!t on. I don’t care what the forum trolls have to say, but when the “professionals” won’t even give them credit, it gets under my skin. Being the underdog is a good thing. All I’m saying is that I’m sick of the Skins being grouped into the Bills, Lions, Browns crew. There’s always been some aspect of the Redskins that’s been good(like the defence) even when the whole team wasn’t doing good. Even when you pull off a win against Green Bay, it’s not because you played good, it’s because “the key players got taken out”, which I may add was due to our D. I’ll just be dissaponted that I won’t be able to Personally rub it in everybody on NFL Networks face when they’re solid.

    Let’s see…
    1) sub-standard O-line play – check
    2) sub-standard D-backfield play – check
    3) sub-standard Special Teams play – check
    4) too many penalties – check
    5) inconsistant run game – check
    Yep, that confirms it was a Packers game I was watching.
    All the same problems that haunted them last year along with the added problem of the running game and now injuries. Yikes!

    Mr. Humble, if you’re gonna use stats then at least get them right. You always falsify stats to fit your point.
    Rodgers is 20-17 not 18-20 and he and Favre have basically the same exact record through their first 37 games. I believe Favre was also either 20-17 or 21-16. And you guys need to quit blaming Rodgers for not having a playoff win.
    The Packers offense and Rodgers tore up the Cardinals. It was the Packers defense that lost the game. How does that fall on Rodgers especially considering he had 3 face masks that weren’t called including the last play of the game which was his fumble.
    xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    Crigs – if you’re gonna use stats then at least include all of the pertinent information. When Favre started he was 23 years old, in his 2nd season in the NFL and took a 4-12 team and lead them to a 9-7 record. On the-other-hand Rodgers when he started was 25 years old, in his 4th season in the NFL and took a 13-3 team and lead them to a 6-10 record.
    So let me get this straight: Rodgers’ early INT that lead to Arizona points, holding onto the ball too long contributing to 5 sacks, missing a wide open receiver in OT and a fumble (punt) that lead directly to the winning touchdown was the fault of the defense?
    Oh, and that WASN’T a facemask at the end of the game. Find the rule. Read the rule. Be enlightened.
