Rams vs Washington by PatrickBateman
In this NFL fixture LA Rams will host Washington Redskins.
Rams opened the season in the best way possible, by completely thrashing Colts 46:9. They were dominant in every aspect of play, with Colts looking like a lost herd. Rams` defence completely shut down Tolzien, forcing him to 2 interceptions and only 9 completed passes for 128 yards. Goff, on the other hand, completed 21 out of 29 pass attempts for 306 yards. Everything was functioning for Rams and they will come into this game encouraged by their convincing win at the start of season. Improvements in their defence have been already noticeable, and they will be even more boosted by the return of their best DT Aaron Donald who ended his houldout last week.
Redskins started their season with a home defeat against Eagles 30:17. They couldn`t find rhythm in offence since they haven`t been able to efficiently run the ball. That made it hard for Cousins who didn`t have a particularly successful performance having thrown one touchdown and one interception. Redskins` defence did a good job stopping Eagles` running game, but if they allow as much passes as they did, they will find themselves again in a tough position. Like Rams, Redskins won`t have any noticeable missings either.
Rams are coming after a morale-boosting victory and since Redskins showed nothing special in their opening game, LA team should be considered favourites. Goff connected much better with his receivers than Cousins did with his, and since neither team showed good running game, this game should come down to who will pass better. Defences will also play huge role here, and as Rams showed great defensive performance last time out, they should have the upper hand here, especially if Donald gets a run out. Redskins are not exactly a reliable team and I really liked how Rams looked in the last game. Sure, Colts presented disasterous performance, but the merit shouldn`t be taken away from Rams. I see another victory for the hosts here, and I believe they will cover -2.5 spread, which doesn`t look high.
