Packers Defense Saves the Day

The Packers narrowly escaped with a 17-14 win against the Washington Redskins on Sunday, when their suddenly inefficient offense struggled to put points on the board.  Luckily, in the 3rd quarter, Corey Williams stripped the ball from the hands of Santana Moss and Charles Woodson took the ball and scampered into the endzone for a Green Bay score.  Without that touchdown, it would have been hard for the Packers to win.  Favre struggled all day with horrifically off target passes.  Let’s hope that it was a result of rain and a damp ball rather than a more serious problem (say, a recurrence of a shoulder injury that nagged at Favre during training camp).  Let’s also hope that Mason Crosby’s two missed field goals were due to the wet conditions as well.  In any case, the Packers are an astounding 5-1, and the bye week seems to have arrived at the perfect time.
