Redskins vs Rams – 1st Half Summary

The Rams come out flat against the Redskins and then close the half playing in an equally lack luster fashion.  In between it comes down to the Rams defensive line being totally manhandled by the Redskins.  For the half, the Redskins averaged 8.4 yards per rushing carry.  Most of that damage was done by the Skins #1 running back Kelley who went 12 for 79.  Luckily for the Rams Kelley was injured shortly after the start of the 2nd quarter.  Unfortunately, his backup Thompson went nearly untouched on an explosive 61 yard touch down run.

The only thing keeping the Rams within striking distance was a 69 yard reception by receiver Everett leading to a Gurley goal line TD run.  At the half the score is Skins 20 – Rams 10.  If the Rams are going to make this a competitive outing the run defense has got to pull it together.  We need more offensive productions as well.  The Rams netted 20 yards of rushing yards in the first half.  Take out Everett’s reception and the Rams are only looking at another 70 yards receiving.  That kind of output is simply  insufficient to give the Rams a ‘W’ in this game.

Lots of game time left.  Let’s go Rams!
