Kurt Cousins and Washington's football team were no match for the Green Bay Packers Sunday at FedEx Field.  Washington began the game with momentum, grabbing an 11-0 lead early on. However, Green Bay still beat Washington 35-18 to end Washington’s season and ending their four-game streak this regular season. They have also lost their hold on the NFC East title for 16 weeks.

Washington's football team had one of their best seasons yet and posted their first winning record (9-7) since 2012. A season-best crowd of 81,327 packed into the stadium to witness the team’s first playoff game in three seasons. They hoped to witness Washington’s first playoff victory since the 2005 season, and the first at home since 2000. Washington finished their season off 9-8.
