Keys to a Packers victory.

by Ryan Fantozzi

There are some great story lines heading into tomorrow's game between the Pack and the Washington Redskins. Will RG3 look better than he did in week 1? Will the Redskins be forced to change their nickname? Which team who won their respective divisions from last year avoid an early 0-2 whole. Here are some things the Packers can do to avoid that. 

1. No huddle offense- The Eagles ran the Redskins defense into the ground in the first half with Chip Kelly's offense. The Packers have enough weapons and experience to go up tempo and try to get out to an early lead. 

2. Keep Washington's pass rush in check- David Bakhtiari and Don Barclay held up pretty well last week against the 49ers. They will have another tough test this weekend against OLB's Brian Orakpo and Ryan Kerrigan. If Rodgers is up right for most of the game, he'll have no problem shredding the Redskins' defense. 

3. The return of Morgan Burnett He is still listed as questionable for tomorrow, but if Burnett is back and making sure the secondary is in the right places Packer fans everywhere can breathe a sigh of relief. Burnett has progressed every year and his absence last week was as noticeable as Wisconsinites love for beer, cheese and brats. 

4. Contain Alfred Morris- The man who made many people look like fantasy geniuses last year as he finished second in the NFL in rushing yards will look to rebound after a sub par week one. Morris isn't the fastest guy in the world but is tough to bring down. If the Pack's run defense looks like it did last week, they will make a rusty RG3 try to beat them.
