When the Rams Have the Ball
The Rams have lost Torry Holt and their receiving corps is suspect, at best. This leaves QB Marc Bulger, who has suffered from injuries, poor play and awful pass protection since the end of the Rams glory years, with little to work with on offense apart from TB Steven Jackson, who remains one of the best in the NFL. Jackson should see plenty of carries on Sunday, as he is easily the best weapon the team has on offense. The Rams didn't throw at all to Jackson last Sunday, a major mistake because the running back is a good receiver and makes big plays in space. The Redskins linebackers are not good in pass coverage and Jackson could exploit a major weakness in Washington's defense if the Rams make it a priority. On the outside, St. Louis' only big play threat is WR Donnie Avery, who doesn't scare any decent NFL secondary.
