Packers Vs. Redskins: Long Run From Brandon Jackson Helps Put Packers On The Board

Perhaps the Redskins aren't off to such a hot start afterall.

After starting with the ball in excellent field position, a botched snap to Donovan McNabb cost the Redskins 22 yards and gave Clay Matthews his easiest sack of the season.

The first Packers play after a Hunter Smith punt saw running back Brandon Jackson elude Kareem Moore on the way to a 71-yard gain, the longest for the Packers this season. Five plays later, Aaron Rodgers connected with Donald Lee at the goalline to give the Packers a 7-0 lead with just under nine minutes remaining in the first quarter.
