Redskins lose to the Winless Rams


The Washington Redskins end their 4 game winning streak losing to the winless St. Louis Rams, 19-17 on Sunday. The winning field goal was kicked with 2 seconds left on the clock in the fourth quarter at FedEx Field in Landover, Md .

According to DC Sports Box article, "The Previously Winless Rams Shock Redskins" Jason Taylor, Redskins defensive end, expressed his feelings on the game, “The focus was there. We were prepared. Coach Zorn was expressing the importance of this game all week and therefore I don't think anyone took this game lightly. In this league, you can get your butt kicked on any given Sunday. We knew we would get their best shot. They have a new coach, they are coming off a bye-week and they were re-energized and ready to go. We just didn't play as well as we could play. The Rams came in our house and played well enough to win the game.”* The redskins fall to the record of 4-2.

After watching the game it is obvious that simple mistakes cost the previous successful Skins an easy win game. Some say they underestimated their opponents and that their overly confident attitudes turned into faliure, but regaurdless the Redskins cannot afford to go into another game playing as they did Sunday. They are in a very tough spot this season with rival NFC east teams, the Giants and the Cowboys, who all have winning records in the standings. The skins will have to regroup and show their fans why they have those four wins today at home next Sunday against the 2-3 Clevland Browns. Fans will hope for the best. Hail to the Redskins!
