The Rams come in off a prestige Week 1 win and will look to build off that when they visit the Washington Redskins in Week 2.
St. Louis welcomed in new QB Nick Foles with a Week 1 upset win over the Seattle Seahawks 34-31 in OT.
The Redskins drama clearly took an impact on the field as QB Kirk Cousins and the Redskins fell in their season opener to Miami 17-10.
Kick off is set for 1:00 PM EST.
The St. Louis Rams made an interesting move in the offseason when they parted ways with Sam Bradford for QB Nick Foles. Foles switched from a fast paced offense in Philadelphia to a much different, slower style.
Nick Foles impressed in his Rams debut as he threw for 297 yards on 18 of 27 passing. Foles also added a touchdown on an average of 16.5 yards per completion.
The Rams backfield rushed for 76 yards and a pair of touchdowns, which may not look impressive in terms of yardage, but with what they had, it certainly is.
St. Louis was missing their main starters in Tre Mason and Todd Gurley, which left the pressure on Benjamin Cunningham. The RB rushed for 45 yards on 16 carries which at least kept the defense on their heels at times. Tavon Austin, who plays WR, and Nick Foles each had a rushing touchdown to their credit Sunday.
The Rams are 3-2 ATS in their last 5 road games.
The Redskins knew things were going to be spotlighted as they became the center of attention before the season started. QB Robert Griffin III was benched prior to the team’s opening game and the start was given to Kirk Cousins.
Cousins and the Skins struggled to move the ball offensively only going for 10 points in a 17-10 loss to Miami.
Cousins finished with 196 yards, a touchdown, and two crucial interceptions.
Cousins receiving core was very thin and weak on Sunday though as WR DeSean Jackson missed Sunday’s game.
What kept Washington relevant was their run game. RB Alfred Morris rushed for 121 yards on 25 carries. Morris will be going up against a Rams defense that was a struggle against Marshawn Lynch and the Seahawks run attack.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Washington ATS
St. Louis is in kind of a let down spot here. After upsetting the NFC Champs in Week 1, Foles and company are riding high and may be overlooking the Redskins due to all the drama and struggles they’ve had.
Alfred Morris showed some solid signs in Week 1 that he will be a force going forward and with a little help from Cousins, Washington has the potential there.
NFL Free Score Prediction: Washington 21- St. Louis 20
Washington grabs an outright home win here in Week 2 behind Cousins and his bounce back performance.
