Redskins vs. Packers: Game preview, how to watch, and more
By Ian Cummings
We’re now into the thick of preseason. The Redskins will host the Green Bay Packers in their week 2 matchup.
This game, albeit a preseason game, is important for Washington. After the dismal product placed onto the field last Thursday night, the team needs to improve, not only to generate positive results on the field, but also to instill confidence in a fan base that grows increasingly weary by the day. The game starts at 7:30 eastern standard time at FedEx Field in Landover Maryland, with an hour of pregame coverage as well.
This game, like the last one, will not be broadcast live. Instead, it will be regionally televised by CSN Mid-Atlantic. They’re your “ol’ reliable” when it comes to watching games that fail to grace the big screen. But if you’re like me, and you live a half-dozen states away, don’t worry! There are other ways to live stream the game, the most popular two being NFL Game Pass and FuboTV. If you’re old school, and prefer just the sound waves, Redskins Radio has what you want.
Su’a Cravens will be out this game, due to a minor knee injury. While disappointing, his absence also paves the way for other, lesser known safety candidates to accumulate more opportunities. Players like Will Blackmon, Montae Nicholson, and Fish Smithson will all look to prove themselves worthy of a roster spot in the coming weeks. That battle starts tonight.
There are plenty of other battles to watch as well. Almost too many to count. I could list them off, but we’ve already done that for you! Need to brush up on pre-game coverage?
