Both teams are coming off losses so it is a key game as both teams look to avoid starting 0-2. Bet on football is usually not that popular on the Rams since they were pathetic in 2008 and they didn’t start off 2009 any better. They were whitewashed last week by 28-0 by Seattle. They will try and recover from that bet on football loss as they head to Washington this week. “I told the team this morning that we all should be upset that we lost because we are not going to accept losing,” head coach Steve Spagnuolo said. “But we don’t get frustrated, we don’t get down, we just get the mistakes corrected that led to the losing and then we move on to Washington.” One thing to correct for the Rams is avoiding penalties. They had 10 penalties against Seattle for 85 yards.
The Redskins were not much better in bet on football action last week as they lost to the Giants. Washington had some good plays but made too many mistakes and it cost them the game. The defense played well enough for Washington to be in the game but with Jason Campbell at quarterback that is usually not enough. The Redskins held New York running back Brandon Jacobs to 46 yards. London Fletcher led the Redskins’ defense with 18 tackles.
