Redskins vs. Packers: Keys to victory in Week 14 of the 2019 season
By Kyle Hundley
2. Redskins must find a way to get Terry McLaurin more involved in the offense this week
For as unstoppable as Terry McLaurin was early in the season, he had his worst game as a pro in Week 13, as he was held to just eight yards receiving on the day against Carolina. Without McLaurin making his usual plays, it did allow for fellow rookies Kelvin Harmon and Steven Sims Jr. to step up and play increased roles, which isn’t a bad thing.
That said, if the passing game is going to have success against the Green Bay secondary this week, it is going to be because of Terry McLaurin. He is the best receiver on the team and must be more involved in the offense. After getting targeted a whopping 12 times against Detroit, he only saw four targets against the Panthers. That must change.
Look for Dwayne Haskins and McLaurin to get back in sync this week. If he can have a game similar to the one against Detroit (five receptions, 72 yards), or Dallas (five receptions, 62 yards, and a touchdown), it will go a long way. McLaurin also hasn’t scored in six straight games. Look for him to break that streak Sunday.
