NFL 2013 week 2 match between The Green Bay Packers and Washington Redskins, who are 26-2 at home since 2009, haven't lost back-to-back games since October of 2010 and are coming off of a loss as they host the Redskins in their home opener on Sunday.Washington began to gain some traction after a slippery start against the Philadelphia Eagles, but the 'Skins still fell to Philly in their opener and now have to face the league's all-time highest-rated quarterback in an attempt to get back to .500. The lopsided matchup of the game is glaring. The Washington secondary struggled last year and let Michael Vick have somewhat of a field day in the opener. The 'Skins had trouble containing elite quarterbacks like Matt Ryan, Ben Roethlisberger and Eli Manning last season, and Rodgers is probably the best pivot they've faced since the team became competitive at the start of 2012.Nothing's impossible in this league, but there's good reason for Green Bay being a seven-point favorite in Vegas. Find a way to control the pace. Obviously, that didn't happen against Chip Kelly's squad last week. This time, they at least have a shot. This is a defense that gave up 494 yards against San Francisco in Week 1 and surrendered 4.5 yards per carry on the ground last season. Force turnovers and prevent big plays. I know, that's pretty much what every defense has to do to be successful. But I don't mind the 'Skins giving up gains underneath all day—the key is just to slow them down. Brandon Meriweather's presence in the secondary should help.Trent Williams and Tyler Polumbus: That pass rush is fierce and Clay Matthews is dangerous, especially when angry and with dual-threat quarterbacks in his crosshairs.
