Green Bay's offense kept moving the ball with ease following the break. The Packers went 60 yards in just four plays on their second possession of the second half, highlighted by Rodgers' 15-yard connection with Nelson that increased the lead to 31-0.
Washington's initial trip into the red zone didn't come until under five minutes to go in the third quarter, when Griffin's 13-yard delivery to Garcon shortly after Morris had ripped off a 32-yard run gave the Redskins a 1st-and- goal at the Packers' 10. The two teamed up again later in the drive, this time for a 5-yard touchdown that finally got Washington on the board 4:15 prior to the start of the final frame.
The Packers had a swift answer, though, needing only four plays to march 80 yards and reach the end zone once more. After a 37-yard Nelson grab put Green Bay deep in enemy territory, Starks broke free off the left tackle for a 32- yard score and a 31-7 advantage that came just 1:34 after Garcon's touchdown.
"All training camp he's had a chip on his shoulder, and he came in there and ran like that today -- tried to punish people, tried to finish runs," said Jones of Starks, whose extended role came as a consequence of rookie Eddie Lacy suffering a concussion on Green Bay's opening drive. "If we can get that out of him every game, he adds another dimension."
Griffin had a pair of TD passes in the final 11-plus minutes to make the outcome a little more respectable. He concluded a 12-play, 75-yard jaunt with a 3-yard hookup with rookie tight end Jordan Reed, then found Santana Moss for a toe-dragging 9-yard score with 7:36 left to play to bring the Redskins within 38-20.
Washington went for two after Moss' touchdown, but Griffin's pass intended for Reed was broken up.
"We've got to start the game off as if we're down 14-zip or something," said Garcon, whose team spotted Philadelphia a 33-7 lead in Monday's opener before scoring the game's final 20 points.
