Jamison Crowder and Paul Richardson are two of the Washington Redskins' top receiving options, but neither had scored a touchdown in the first 120 minutes of football this season. Both players changed that in the first 30 minutes of action against the Packers in Week 3.

Here's a look at Richardson's bomb that got the scoring party started on the opening drive. Richardson stays with the deep pass from Alex Smith and somersaults his way into the end zone:

That was Richardson's ninth NFL touchdown, and his first with the Redskins. It was also his fifth career reception of more than 40 yards.

Later in the first half, Crowder got on track with a short slant, before laying the ball up over the crossbar:

This was Crowder's lucky 13th touchdown with the Redskins, and hopefully a sign of things to come. Crowder was the team's best receiver with Kirk Cousins under last season, but this was his biggest catch from Smith.

Both receivers contributed the offense's breakout first half attack, which hung 28 points on the Packers en route to a 25-point halftime lead.
