The Washington Redskins (5-3-1) look to start another multi-game win streak when they take on the Green Bay Packers (4-5) on NBC Sunday Night Football in Week 11.
The Packers ended the Redskins' 2015 season thanks to a 35-18 playoff victory last season. But with the Redskins beating the Vikings 26-20 in Week 9 following the tie to the Bengals in London and the Bye Week, the team now has chance to start another lengthy win streak. After losing their first two games of the season, the Redskins reeled off four straight wins to keep pace in the NFC East.
Despite Trent Williams' four-game suspension, the offense continues to click, with Jamison Crowder emerging as the team's MVP through four weeks. The defense, while highly criticized, continues to improve, and pitched a second-half shutout against the Vikings.
For the Packers, a lack of run game has doomed the offense, and with Jordy Nelson still finding his groove following an ACL injury, Aaron Rodgers and the Packers' offense has struggled.
Redskins Kickoff airs at 8:00 p.m. on CSN, with the game set to kick off at 8:30 p.m. on NBC.

Redskins vs. Packers Live Updates
11:43 p.m.: UPDATE: Dan Snyder *really* likes what he sees.

11:34 p.m.: And Josh Norman might have just ended it. He forces a fumble with the Packers driving and the Redskins recover. This one may be over.
11:28 p.m.: And the Redskins offense keeps on humming. They score yet another touchdown, upping their lead to 35-24 with 3:54 left. Cousins is 31-of-30 for 375 yards and two touchdowns. Can the defense finish this game off?
11:22 p.m.: Boy, does Jay Gruden have some guts. The Redskins' coach decided to go for it on fourth-and-1 in his own territory, and it paid off. Cousins dove across the sticks on a quarterback sneak, extending a key fouth quarter drive. And as the TV broadcast showed, his boss was quite pleased with his call.
11:07 p.m.: Back and forth they go. Rodgers drives his team down the field for another touchdown, cutting the Redskins lead to 29-24 in the fourth quarter. Game on.
10:58 p.m.: It's official - Cousins is straight up balling right now. He answers the Packers score with a 70-yard touchdown pass to Pierre Garcon. It's 29-17 in the fourth quarter.
10:53 p.m.: That was entirely too easy. Packers score on a 31-yard touchdown catch and run by James Starks, who was wide open. It's 22-17 early in the fourth.
10:50 p.m.: Cousins is killing it through three quarters. He's 16-of-24 for 230 yards and two touchdowns. He has to play big to show he's worthy of a long term contract. And tonight he's making himself some money.

10:41 p.m.: Boom. Cousins hits Jamison Crowder for a 44-yard touchdown on third-and-11. The Redskins miss another two-point conversion, but they're up 22-10 with two minutes left in the third quarter.
10:26 p.m.: Cousins was sacked on a play where DeSean Jackson was wide open in the end zone. Here's guessing that's what the two were discussing afterward.

10:22 p.m.: Dustin Hopkins hits a 37-yard field goal to extend the Redskins' lead to 16-10 over the Packers. So far, Cousins is 12-19 for 158 yards and a touchdown.
10:14 p.m.: With his second-quarter sack of Aaron Rodgers, Ryan Kerrigan joined elite company.
10:02 p.m.: Jordan Reed out here breaking ankles, per the usual.
10:00 p.m.: Redskins march right back down the field and answer, taking the lead on a Rob Kelley touchdown. It's 13-10 Washington at halftime.
9:44 p.m.: The Packers tack on a field goal to gain their first lead of the night. Green Bay is up 10-7 late in the first half.
9:23 p.m.: Things are getting weird here in the second quarter. The Packers appeared to score a touchdown on a Jordy Nelson catch, but the ball was knocked away in the end zone by Josh Norman. Was it a catch? You be the judge.

9:05 p.m.: Yeah, the move Jackson puts on this defensive back was pretty nasty.
9:00 p.m.: And the Redskins get on the board first! Kirk Cousins hits DeSean Jackson on a 17-yard touchdown to give Washington a 7-0 lead late in the first quarter.
7:50 p.m.: We think Ricky Jean Francois is excited to play this game, guys.
7:21 p.m: It's official: DeSean Jackson is back in the lineup. The Redskins' big-play receiver missed last week's game against the Vikings with a shoulder injury, but felt good enough to give it a go tonight. Check out the full inactives list here.
6:30 p.m.: NO SPLIT JERSEYS. NOT EVEN ON KIDS. DON'T DO IT. EVER.
5:30 p.m.: It's safe to say that Will Compton is ready for the Packers and Sunday Night Football.
4:55 p.m.: The Redskins are going with the burgundy jerseys and gold pants for Sunday Night Football. Personally, I hate the gold pants and they should never wear it again.
4:35 p.m.: It's POLL time and the question is simple: Who wins tonight's Sunday Night Football game ebtween the Redskins and Packer, and by how much? Click here to vote.
