The Green Bay Packers take on the Washington Redskins Saturday, Aug. 19 in the 2017 NFL preseason. Here’s all the info you need to watch.
On Saturday night the Green Bay Packers head to Landover, Maryland to face the Washington Redskins. The two teams had complete opposite starts to the preseason as the Green Bay stars rested but watched their team win easily 24-9 against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 1.
As for Washington, they looked pretty rusty in their showdown against their in-state rival, the Baltimore Ravens. A 23-3 loss ensued and questions about this team’s ability to compete this season flew to the forefront.
The Packers still won’t be without starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who simply is taking it easy and said he will play in the third preseason game. It shouldn’t matter much because he really doesn’t need the reps at this point in his career. Instead, Green Bay can try and display their young guy Brett Hundley with the hopes of one day trading him for some valuable draft stock.
