Both teams opened the season with six-point losses. Green Bay lost 34-28 on the road to San Francisco while Washington went down 33-27 at home against Philadelphia. Washington trailed 33-7 early, struggling both offensively and defensively. Robert Griffin III made his return, although the second-year quarterback didn't have his best game. Griffin threw two costly interceptions and didn't appear to fully trust his surgically repaired knee.

Neither team covered the spread in Week 1, although Green Bay came close, missing a cover by just one point. Some oddsmakers have the Packers as 9-point favorites, and the total for the game was set at 48 points, a number which could be in early jeopardy. Not only did both teams look suspect on defense in the season opener, but the total has gone over in four of Green Bay's last five games and four of Washington's last six.

The two teams haven't met many times during the regular season recently. Green Bay is 4-1 in the last five games against Washington, dating back to 2001. The Packers are 3-1-1 against the spread in those contests with the total going under four times.
