Washington Redskins Playmakers Who Must Shine Against Green Bay Packers

Whether anyone is willing to admit it or not, the Washington Redskins were set up for failure under the bright lights of Monday Night Football against the Philadelphia Eagles.

The defending division champs, a talented squad that was a year wiser, faced the rebuilding Eagles, who had a new coaching staff and new systems on both sides of the ball.

Few observers could have expected the Eagles offense to put on the explosive show it did during the first half of the game. Even fewer could have expected the Redskins to come out flat and stay that way for three quarters.

Washington will need big plays from their key players if they are to avoid an 0-2 record to start the season. The Green Bay Packers, fresh off a frustrating loss to the San Francisco 49ers, are standing in their way and will be hell bent on stopping Redskin playmakers from breaking open the game.

Here are the players for Washington who need to have big games against the Packers to put the Redskins back on track early in the season.
