Mike McCarthy and the Green Bay Packers went into their Week 3 matchup with the Washington Redskins hoping to make a statement to the NFC. After tying with the Minnesota Vikings in Week 2, the Packers wanted to improve to 2-0-1 on the season and show that they are one of the elite teams in the NFC.
Unfortunately, the Packers lost the game and did so in very rough fashion. Not only did they not make the statement that they were hoping to, they actually left some major concerns for their fans. Both sides of the football seem to have big issues that need to be fixed before Green Bay can seriously compete for a Super Bowl.

Offensively, the Packers need to keep Rodgers upright in order to keep him healthy enough to lead them to wins.

Let’s dive in and take a look at the three biggest concerns following the Packers’ Week 3 loss against Washington.
