Whoda Thunk It? Redskins Over Packers 16-13

Woop! The Washington Redskins beat the Green Bay Packers. This is no time to nitpick. It's time to celebrate.
We'll have more of our Redskins Hog Heaven thoughtful analysis early this week. For now, here are a few first impressions.
There are real concerns about the offensive line once you get past the starters. You knew that already. The line held up, um, ok, in the few plays when both Trent Williams and Jammal Brown were out. It worked for today, but could have been worse. Please don't make me watch that again.
The Redskins offense looked a lot better with Packers linebacker Clay Matthews out of the game. One "gets" the 3-4 defense by watching the Packers. The Packers defensive linemen pushed the Redskins linemen around far too much, giving Matthews shots at McNabb and the backfield. The Redskins' 3-4 did pretty much the same to the Packers; four sacks.
Is there anything Lorenzo Alexander can't do? Next time I buy a Redskins jersey, it's going to be an Alexander.
