Packers lead, 10-0, after one quarter at Lambeau

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on September 15, 2013 – 12:41 pm

130915-q1-update600GREEN BAY–The Packers held a 10-0 lead over the Washington Redskins, following one quarter of play at Lambeau Field on Sunday.

On the opening drive of the game, Aaron Rodgers threw for 21 yards to Randall Cobb on third-and-one. Two plays later, Packers rookie running back Eddie Lacy was knocked out of the game and sent to the locker room by a vicious head shot from Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather. Rodgers converted a key third-and-two pass to James Jones and the Packers were first-and-goal at the Redskins 9-yard line. That’s as far as the drive would go, however, as the Redskins sacked Rodgers on consecutive plays and the Packers were forced to settle for a 28-yard field goal by Mason Crosby.

A 25-yard Redskins punt gave the Packers excellent field position for their second drive, but Rodgers was sacked on first down and were left with a third-and-21 they were unable to convert.

Another short Redskins punt set up the Packers at the Redskins 42-yard line with 3:08 to play in the first quarter. On fourth-and-three from the Redskins 35, Rodgers pitched a short toss over the middle to Cobb and he did the rest, speeding away from the Redskins defense. The Packers led, 10-0.

The Redskins finally did something on offense when quarterback Robert Griffin III completed a short pass to Pierre Garcon that Garcon turned into a 44-yard gain.

It was announced that Lacy had sustained a concussion and would not return to the game.

    What was the injury to Lacy exactly?

    Lacey has a concussion and was put out of the rest of the game.
    I’m pissed because FOX in California switched to the KC v. Dallas game in the 4th quarter. Our cable company sucks. #GOPACKGO

    TG we didn’t let Starks go. He, Arron,Jones , had career days. Just what the Pack needed to get the SF taste out their mouths. I hope Seattle wins the the Whiner Bowl over SF. Should be a entertaining match up. With Harbawl & Carrol ending up in a fist fight.

    They didn’t carry the game here on TV. I followed the audio on WTMJ, & game tracker on Fox Sports. Will Brandon Meriweather get fined for the head shot on Lacey? After all Clay got fined for a knock down, that wouldn’t make the high light reels for WWF.

    I think he should be fined for BOTH head shots he tried. He led with the crown of the helmet against Lacy and again against Starks later on when he got a taste of his own medicine. I though McCarthy would be all over it.
