This Sunday the Redskins travel to St. Louis to take on the 0-2 Rams. The Redskins are trying to turn the tides off a disappointing loss to the Houston Texans on Sunday and are looking for redemption.
The Redskins’ rushing D is rated #8 so far this season, but their passing D is almost dead last at #31. The only good thing about this stat is that the Texans are #32 (ha). In comparison with the Rams, their rushing D is rated #30 to their passing D of #24.
As for the offense, the Redskins’ passing has jumped to #7, but their rushing is dead last at #32. In comparison with the Rams, their rushing O is rated #25 to their passing O of #23. However, the Ram’s Steven Jackson is rated #8 in the NFL.
It’s very clear what they have to do: Keep the pressure on Sam Bradford and somehow find a way to defend against the Ram’s Steven Jackson. Without a good running game by the Redskins, they might be in trouble, but if they can get their running game going, it should be an “easyish” win. They added RB Chad Simpson, cut Larry Johnson and moved up Keiland Williams. Only time will tell.

Written by Mercedes Green
I lived in Greene County Virginia for about 5 years of my childhood. This span of time was enough to imprint the love of the Washington Redskins (and hate of the Dallas Cowboys) into my life forever, even though I am Canadian and still live in Canada. I am in no way an expert on sports, football, or even the Redskins, but I do absolutely adore them, their fans and their home state(s). My favourite Redskin is and will always be Darrell Green (not because we share the same last name lol). I've adored Chris Cooley since he joined the team from the 2004 draft and love London Fletcher. Hail to the Redskins! See you October 30th in my home town of Toronto.
