From the Packers' improved red-zone defense to wide receiver Allen Lazard's big day, columnist Jim Polzin shares his first thoughts after Green Bay defeated Washington 24-10.

What if the Bears had been able to lure Tom Brady to Chicago 19 months ago? How aggressively did they even pursue that dream? And what ultimately sent Brady to Tampa Bay instead?
From defenses hell-bent on preventing Davante Adams from beating them (even though he still has been able to, to varying degrees in the first six games) to the absence of downfield threat Marquez Valdes-Scantling (who will miss his fourth straight game against Washington because of a hamstring injury sustained at San Francisco in Week 3) to a handful of deep balls that quarterback Aaron Rodgers didn’t put where he wanted to (including a pair of early season bombs to MVS that went awry), the Packers offense wants to get its downfield passing game to be more productive.
The Packers defense looks pretty good on the NFL’s weekly statistical rankings — the unit entered Week 7’s games ranked fifth in the 32-team NFL in total defense (315 yards per game) and 13th in scoring defense (22.7 points per game) — but a remarkably ugly stat still hung over defensive coordinator Joe Barry’s guys: Allowing opponents to score touchdowns on all 15 of their forays inside the Green Bay 20-yard line, making the Packers the first team in at least the last 40 years that failed to get a single red-zone stop in the first six games of a season.
The Packers’ dynamic duo of Aaron Jones (above left) and AJ Dillon (above right) is delivering exactly what the personnel staff envisioned when Dillon was selected in the second round of last year’s draft and what the coaching staff pictured after locker-room favorite Jamaal Williams moved on to the Detroit Lions in free agency. And while Rodgers might drive the offense, the Jones-Dillon pairing has been the engine, especially during the past several games.
