The Redskins are looking for their first win, and the Rams are looking to prove that they are for real this year. Sean McVay and the Redskins know each other very well from their time together over the last 7 years, and McVay coached with Jay Gruden on two other teams before that. They know what to expect from the other side, and will have to be ready to adjust.
The Redskins offense came out flat, and took too long to get into a rhythm vs the Eagles in Week 1. Missed opportunities, turnovers, and some poor play made the offense sputter and eventually die with a controversial penalty. Third downs continue to be a problem on both sides of the ball, and if some of these issues don’t get fixed quickly, it will be a long flight home from LA.
The Rams played a JV Colts team last week, and beat them up throughout the game. The Redskins aren’t the Colts and won’t roll over that easily, but will the offense be able to defeat a Wade Phillips run defense that has talent to make plays and turnovers?
Is McVay turning Jared Goff into a real life NFL QB or was the Colts defense that bad? The Redskins defense is improved from last year. The defensive front can get pressure on the QB as seen last week, they just need to finish the job. The ILBs, especially Zach Brown, are bringing more speed to the game. The secondary is great at CB, but still has question marks at safety.
Will it be enough to get the win before facing two tough teams from the AFC before the bye week?
