The Redskins turn around on a short week, looking to get back on track against a struggling Sam Bradford and the St. Louis Rams.
After a tough loss to hated rival Dallas, the Redskins turn around on a short week and head to the Midwest to face a winless St. Louis Rams team. The Rams, predicted by many to take a step up and win the NFC West, are 0-3 with each loss coming by double digits. They were blown out at home by the Ravens last week.
Quarterback Sam Bradford was expected to flourish under new offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels but his struggles have mirrored his team's, as only Kerry Collins, Matt Cassel, and Luke McCown have worse passer ratings through three weeks. Bradford is dealing with a sprained toe but is listed as probable and is expected to play. Steven Jackson, who saw limited action against the Ravens due to a quad injury, is also expected to play.
Expect the Skins defense, which has looked good each of the first three weeks, to sustain Bradford's early season struggles against the NFC East. The Skins are currently road favorites, giving 1.5 points to the Rams. Kickoff is set for 1:00 PM as the Skins look to go 3-1 heading into their bye week.
