About Washington Redskins vs. Green Bay Packers
The Packers and the Washington Redskins rivalry has often been described as a bit of a paradox. It is one of the oldest in the League. It began in 1932 when the Redskins were established as the Boston Braves. While this rivalry spans over eight decades, the two teams have played only 33 games against each other - excluding the three post-season games.

The 33 games that the two teams have played were enough to make some of the most memorable moments in NFL history.
