Trading rushing touchdowns, Packers reclaim 24-18 lead

LANDOVER, MD - JANUARY 10: Quarterback Kirk Cousins #8 of the Washington Redskins scores a third-quarter touchdown against strong safety Morgan Burnett #42 of the Green Bay Packers during the NFC Wild Card Playoff game at FedExField on January 10, 2016 in Landover, Maryland.

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.

    When the Packers offense finds its stride, the rest of the league gasps in horror.

    Where has MeShon been most of the game?I can see why Chip got rid of him.

    It is over …Packers are cruising !

    The only thing left is the final score.

    Pretty sure Aaron Rodgers has the same wallet as Samuel L Jackson had in Pulp Fiction.

    Now Packers up by 14 points. Moral of story for Washington fans, don’t talk trash during the game when your team is by 11…especially when you’re attempting to defend against Aaron Rodgers and his arm…the guy is very elusive in the pocket and tough to defend…he’s eating up Washington’s defense as we speak…again

    After talking so much about “one-and-done” and “choking” all year long…… the Vikings choke at home and go one and done, while the Packers are (knock on wood) looking like they might be moving on, still with a chance.

    How does it feel, Vikings fans?

    Bahahaha.

    They are actually calling the redskins “redskins” in this game. Joe buck just moved up a notch in my book. That puts him at notch one.

    Odds for Logicalvoice excuses:

    5/2- The refs screwed us
    3/1- The NFL screwed us
    5/1- The Packers cheated
    7/1- The Cowboys were messing with out headsets
    8/1- We really won, you people are just under a spell

  9. maverick43 says: Jan 10, 2016 7:33 PM

    It’s only logical that the Redskins will lose this game!

    Sigh, build me up just to tear me down. Should’ve known better this time around.

    Packers move on.

    Vikings sit at home.

    YOU LIKE THAT??

  12. squawktalkseahawk says: Jan 10, 2016 7:46 PM

    Leave it to the NFC Least to let the Packers hang around and get their Mojo back.

    Stay classy GB fans…as I recall, GB didn’t win the division this year…Minnesota did….and Minnesota beat GB, in GB, in the game that most counted.

    Beating up on Washington was expected…save your trash talk when you’ve beat somebody…beginning with AZ in AZ…then you can talk.

    Skawh, mind your own business.

    You didn’t even know what football was three years ago.

    Vikings fans talk smack and have never won anything.

    They deserve everything they get.

  20. kcarpenter1245 says: Jan 10, 2016 7:53 PM

    So much for the Vikings being immune to choking. At least, that’s the way their fans like to talk.

  21. jerrykill4pres says: Jan 10, 2016 7:55 PM

    Packers fans I gotta love it…

    You lose out the division, you lose 3 division games at the “historic lambeau field”, you draw the worst team in the NFC playoffs, and now you start talking trash? lol

    You’ll always be that state to the east of us, that reminds me of a 3rd world, or underprivileged country.

    You’ll be smoked by the cards next week fudgies. But that’s ok. Next year you won’t be able to even compete in the division.

  22. blu4l1fe says: Jan 10, 2016 8:03 PM

    Very promising last few games and an impressive start to this game but lousy finish. I didn’t think they were a one and done…. wow….

    I congratulated Vikings fans on their division win after that game.

    The thing is, ever since the SB win in 2010, all we’ve heard from Vikings fans is that division wins (and even playoff wins) don’t matter. That if the Packers don’t win the Super Bowl when they make the playoffs, it’s a massive choke job. And that going one and done is the worst of the worst, and far more embarrassing than losing the division.

    Now the Vikings finally get the division win, but actually choke, and actually go one and done. The schadenfreude is just too good not to bask in for a little while.

    =================================

    A Dolphin fan talking trash ?

    LOL

    Say what you will about the NFC East, but the Redskins earned the division by winning games at the end of the season that they had to win and by playing their best football.
    No, I did not think they would go very far in the playoffs but who even thought they would be in the playoffs?

  25. vancouversportsbro says: Jan 10, 2016 8:05 PM

    8/1- We really won, you people are just under a spell

    ———————————

    He will say that. He’s not a very good troll at all. The RG3 is the best QB in the league posts are not funny.

    Logicalvoice will now head back down into his parents basement and formulate his new trilling message for next season. Have a nice day, bud.

  27. conormacleodisloosebutthole says: Jan 10, 2016 8:10 PM

    Jesus! In the end neither the Vikings or the Packers are real contenders this year. But you have to like a playoff win. You like that?

    Sad little attempts to trash the Packers. Only the Vikings’ fans still try to talk trash when they lose. It’s probably because they’re hardly ever in the playoffs, so they were just happy to be included in the postseason, even if it’s just for one game.

    Nick Perry was beasting in this game…
    Dude would of set a record for playoff sacks in a single game if Trent Williams wasn’t getting away with holding all game long.

  31. Pftsliberalagenda says: Jan 10, 2016 8:16 PM

    Great season redskins. Now with ample cap space (Mara can’t screw us this year) and a competent gm and qb things are looking up. Very proud of you guys!

    anger for the Redskins name makes no sense to me – a man of color that has been name called.

    Redskins is a name of honor today. It stands for a team that is proud of who they are. Not sure what it meant in the past, but today it means the Washington football team in all its glory (well no glory today, because they got served by the Pack, but you catch my implication)
