GREEN BAY, Wis. (WSAW) -The Packers stay perfect at home with a 24-10 victory over the Washington Football Team. It’s their sixth consecutive victory.

Green Bay drew first blood with a familiar connection, when Aaron Rodgers found Davante Adams on fourth down on their first drive of the game for a 17-yard touchdown. That capped off a 13-play, 75-yard opening sequence.

Washington answered on their opening drive, when Taylor Heinicke connected with Terry McLaurin for a 40-yard score.

The Packers finally scored again on their final drive of the first half, Allen Lazard capped off a drive where he had five catches with a 10-yard score.

Robert Tonyan had his most productive day of the season so far, highlighted by his first touchdown since Week 2 early in the third quarter after the Packers forced a turnover on the second play of the half.

The Packers also ended their historically bad start to the season in the red zone on defense, as they came up with their first four stops inside the 20-yard line on the year in the second half.

Green Bay is now 6-1, comfortably atop the NFC North, and get ready for a Thursday night showdown against another NFC powerhouse, the Arizona Cardinals.
