Washington Redskins rumors predict a tough game against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday (Sept. 17), but there are a few NFL experts who feel that the Redskins are going to win this one. In the Week 2 NFL picks and predictions by ESPN, Matt Bowen, Mike Golic, and Dan Graziano are going with the Redskins over the Rams. In their Week 1 predictions, Bowen was 10-5, Golic was 7-8, and Graziano was 9-6.

Game time is 1:25 p.m. PT on Sunday, with an over/under of 45 points and the Rams currently favored by 2.5 points. In their Week 1 game, the Los Angeles Rams beat the Indianapolis Colts 46-9 behind a career-high 306 passing yards by quarterback Jared Goff.

The Washington Redskins came up short against the Philadelphia Eagles, losing 30-17 in the home opener.

Injury report for Redskins vs. Rams game

Washington Redskins receiver Josh Doctson is on the Week 2 injury report and currently listed as questionable for the game against the Rams. Doctson had already missed two of the first three preseason games for the Redskins due to a hamstring injury that has not gone away. It limited him in the season-opener and forced coach Jay Gruden to limit his involvement in practices this week.

Gruden hasn’t decided to rule out Doctson for the Rams game but will provide an injury update on the situation this weekend. The first-round pick of the 2016 NFL Draft has been injured quite a bit since joining the Redskins, missing 14 games last year due to Achilles’ issues.

The Washington Redskins’ injury report also has several other players on it, including running back Chris Thompson (back), receiver Jamison Crowder (hip), and tackle Morgan Moses (angle), but they should all be good to go by game time.

Week 2 keys to victory for Redskins

There are a lot of Washington Redskins rumors that focus on the running game and the team has to establish the run early in this game against the Los Angeles Rams.

That will allow quarterback Kirk Cousins more freedom in the passing game, giving him a chance to show that his Week 1 performance against the Philadelphia Eagles was a fluke. It’s also important for the defense to rush the decision-making process for Rams quarterback Jared Goff and force him into some early mistakes.

There are a number of other great games on the Week 2 NFL schedule, including the Green Bay Packers trying to prove themselves against the Atlanta Falcons. Meanwhile, some possibly good news for Washington Redskins fans is that many experts are predicting that the Dallas Cowboys won’t win the NFC East this year.
