Before the game, the players got things started on Twitter:

For Redskins Kickoff, we wanted to know what you thought the Redskins' biggest cause for concern was in facing the Packers...:

...and how you predicted the game would turn out:

Green Bay struck first with a 28-yard field goal from Mason Crosby:

The Packers were aggressive early, going for it on 4th & 3. The gamble payed off with a 35-yard touchdown strike from Rodgers to Cobb to give Green Bay a 10-0 lead:

Meriweather was finally back in action for the Redskins, but that didn't last long. He went helmet-to-helmet with Starks and went down hard with a concussion:

With 11:40 to play in the 2nd quarter, Aaron Rodgers connected with Jordy Nelson for a 14-yard touchdown toss:

Midway through the 2nd, Rodgers was forced out of the pocket but found Jermichael Finley for a 3-yard touchdown:

The Redskins trailed 24-0 at the half. With plenty for them to go over in the locker room, we wanted to know what you thought should be atop the list:

Midway through the 3rd quarter, the Rodgers-Nelson connection struck again to make it 31-0 Packers:

The Redskins finally got on the board with 4:05 left in the 3rd. Garçon, who had been fighting hard for every extra yard he could get all day long, was able to reach the ball across the goal line as he was forced out of bounds:

Green Bay answered right back with a 32-yard Starks touchdown run:

With 11:02 to play in the 4th, rookie TE Jordan Reed scored his first NFL touchdown on a 3-yard catch to make it 38-14:

The Green Bay lead was cut to 38-20 when RGIII connected with Moss for a 9-yard score, but the Redskins were unsuccessful on the 2-point conversion attempt:

@bradturner540 was right. It was too little too late for the Redskins and they fell 38-20 to the Packers at Lambeau Field:

Despite the loss, Pierre Garçon turned in an impressive performance. Here's how some of you described it in one word:

After the game, players were obviously unhappy with the loss but promised to bounce back:
