Green Bay Packers vs. Washington Redskins: Pressure on RG3 Key to Win

Robert Griffin III

The last time an offensive leader recovering from an ACL tear came into Lambeau Field he was wearing number 28 and he ran for 210 yards. 

This week, RG3 comes to town and the Green Bay Packers will try to prevent another track meet at the hands of a player who suffered an ACL injury.

If you watched the first game RG3 played in this season you may have noticed he wasn’t quite the RG3 we saw in week 6 last year when he took off for a 76 yard run against Minnesota and gained a total of 138 yards on the ground.

On Monday night, it seemed like his reactions in the pocket were not where he or the team would want them to be. He also threw the ball into triple coverage to a receiver who never even appeared open. The ball was intercepted.  His offensive line was pushed back a lot which never allowed him to step into his throws, resulting in slower throws.

It appears that RG3 will need a few more games to find his inner playmaker.  The Packers cannot let him find that this Sunday.  The more pressure Clay Matthews (CM3) and company can put on him, the more errors he will make.  I believe that is where the game will be won.

Pressure = errors, turnovers, punts, three-and-outs, and a Packers win!

I think this is a good time to play RG3.  It’s early in the year and he still has a ways to go in getting back to where he was before his injury.

Enjoy this late summer showdown.
