The Washington Redskins play host the Green Bay Packers at the FedEx Field on Saturday night for their first home exhibition game of the 2017 NFL preseason season. The Redskins has been defeated by the Baltimore Ravens in their preseason opener in disappointing 23-3 loss last week. The Washington will be playing their starters slightly longer. The Redskins met with the Packers last season and had their highest-scoring contest of the season with a 42-24 victory in Week 11 regular season.
For the Packers, The Green Bay have players looking to build off their success in the exhibition game last week and others attempting to bounce back on track on Saturday night against the Redskins. The Packers outplayed the Philadelphia Eagles 24-9 all thanks to Trevor Davis’ performance-level play after returning a 69-yard punt return for a score and the defense forcing a total of four turnovers. Davis and the Packers defense look to have a repeat that week 1 game plan for tonight and players like Clay Matthews, Nick Perry, Davante Adams and Martellus Bennett look to make more play time as well.
