The wild card round of the 2016 NFL playoffs wraps up Sunday afternoon as Washington hosts the Green Bay Packers. The game kicks off at 1:40 p.m. PT, and will air on FOX, with Joe Buck and Troy Aikman announcing the game.
It has not been the prettiest of football through three games. Kansas City bulldozed an awful Texans offense, the Steelers won a wildly ugly game over the Bengals, and Seahawks-Vikings was basically a "first to score wins" kind of game. That leaves us with Washington and Green Bay. If any game is going to entertain us, I feel like this is the one. The Packers offense has struggled at times, but Aaron Rodgers is always capable of a big game. And Kirk Cousins? Well, over the last four games, the Washington offense has made some big plays. It has come against bad teams, but the Packers are struggling enough that Cousins should be able to do some damage.
The line is currently a pick 'em, with some sports books offering Washington at -1. Public money has stuck with Washington, but the line remains slim. I have Washington winning, but having spent a lot of time in the nation's capital, I certainly could see them finding out a new and exciting way to yack this game up.
