Washington made an impressive statement to open the second half, with Kirk Cousins capping an impressive drive with a touchdown run.
But then the Packers found a run game of their own, and reclaimed a 24-18 lead in the third quarter.
After Eddie Lacy converted a fourth-and-1 in impressive fashion, he popped a 30-yard run before James Starks took a pitch 4 yards for the touchdown.
Prior to those three runs, the Packers’ longest run of the day was a 9-yarder by wide receiver Randall Cobb.
But Washington getting the lead back to open the second half was evidence they had recovered, after the Packers had scored 17 straight in the second quarter.
