Throughout six weeks of the season, history has yet to repeat itself in both the short and long term.
In the short term, the Packers have not replicated their game from Week 1 when they lost 38-3 and after which quarterback Aaron Rodgers assured people they would be right. They have and Green Bay has won five in a row and sits firmly at the top of the NFC North.
In the long run, it appears that Washington’s NFC East title from a year ago may have been a fluke.
The Washington soccer team, despite having a defensive-minded head coach in Ron Rivera, has one of the worst defenses in the league. They have lost two games in a row and have given up the most points and the second most yards of any team in the NFL this season.

Offensively, they haven’t been much better. They’re in the middle of the road in most major offensive categories and have been plagued with injuries, especially at wide receiver. Terry McLaurin, Dyami Brown and Curtis Samuel have missed significant playing time or practice time at various points throughout the season, including this week.
Green Bay has been anchored by a solid season from Aaron Rodgers and his best receiver Davante Adams, who leads the NFL in receptions and receiving yards. Running back Aaron Jones has also been solid for the Packers this year, especially in the passing game, where he already has four receiving touchdowns.
At 5-1, the Packers have a good cushion and would remain at the top of the division even with a loss. Washington appears to be trending down at 2-4, although it started the season at 2-5 last year before finishing 7-9 with a playoff spot.
