The Washington Redskins improved to 3 and 1 by defeating the St. Louis Rams 17 to 10. Ryan Torain ran for 135 yards and a 20-yard touchdown as the Redskins jumped on the Rams early, then had to get a great effort from the defense to hold off a late rally by the proud and frustrated Rams.
The Ram receivers had butterfingers all day. To add to Sam Bradford’s frustration caused by dropped passes was being sacked 6 times by the leagues 5th ranked defense.
The Redskins defense held the Rams to under 200 total yards. Rookie Ryan Kerrigan played great again,and caused a fumble to help secure the game for the Redskins.
Eyebrows were raised when the Redskins quarterback Rex Grossman predicted a “Skins Division Title” this year, but now many are starting to believe Rex wasn’t insane after all. The running game got a huge boost with the return of Ryan Torain this week, and we can expect that to continue into the rest of the season.
The ‘Skins may have one of the best backfields in the NFL with Ryan Torain,Tim Hightower, and Roy Helu behind a good offensive line. The defense is extremely disciplined and is one of the smartest units in the NFL and gets better with LaRon Landry back in the lineup.
