How Did The Redskins Beat The Packers?

The fourth quarter just started at the Georgia Dome and the Green Bay Packers have already posted 42 points against the Atlanta Falcons, who finished with a 13-3 record and the 10th ranked defense in the league.

So how the hell did Washington Redskins actually beat this Green Bay team? It just doesn't make sense. This seems like clear proof that the Redskins should have been good enough to reach the NFC Championship game.

Okay, maybe not. This is a different Packers team from what the Redskins faced. FIrst of all, that team didn't even try to run the ball. This team has James Starks. Secondly, Aaron Rodgers has been playing like an MVP the past several weeks. He's got over 350 passing yards and has thrown for three touchdowns while rushing for another.

But that doesn't seem to explain everything. Sure, the Packers are peaking at the right time, but how can they score42 or more points against the team with the best record in the NFC, but only score 13 points against the lowly Redskins.
