NFL Week 2: 5 biggest winners from Sunday's action

18 September 2017

It's Redskins Day at Papa John's!

Washington ran the ball seven straight times on a drive capped by Thompson's 7-yard run for a 10-0 lead. But Washington escaped Los Angeles on Sunday with a victory it needed as much as a club can in Week 2, 27-20 over the Rams. Both the Raiders and Chiefs are off to 2-0 starts.

In a clash where the main story was how Rams head coach Sean McVay would handle hosting his old team, Jared Goff didn't disappoint until the very end. He finished 15 of 25 for 224 yards, one touchdown and one interception, which is about as vanilla as it gets. Is that offensive line going to hold up all season?

Los Angeles enjoyed a comfortable victory last week, thumping the Indianapolis Colts with a 37-point margin of victory.

"With that being said, though, it wasn't almost where we could be".

Defensively, this is still a unit that can get after the quarterback Ryan Kerrigan on the outside. McVay indicated that perhaps he should have got Gurley going earlier. "Jay allowed us to do that today, and we stepped up to the plate". Cousins passed for 179 yards. Rob Kelley had 78 yards on 12 carries before exiting the game with a rib injury.

Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley scored a sensational 18-yard touchdown in their 27-20 defeat to Washington Redskinds on Sunday, hurdling cornerback Bashaud Breeland. Jordan Reed will have a major impact on a game soon enough.

Getting a win with a subpar game from Cousins-The Redskins have had trouble winning if Kirk Cousins is not on the top of his game. The 6-2 Josh Doctson, targeted just once, has yet to catch a pass this season. If the flags hadn't been thrown, Gurley would have had around 66 rushing yards.

When the Redskins run the football effectively they normally win games.

Washington (1-1) jumped out to a 13-0 lead in the first half after Dustin Hopkins booted his second of two field goal makes in the game.

Gurley also contributed 48 yards and a touchdown on three receptions, proving that he when he's at his best, he is the Rams biggest red zone threat.

Linebacker Robert Quinn said Donald's availability alone altered the Redskins' game plan.

He had a 44-yard attempt blocked with one second left in a 24-21 season-opening loss to the Denver Broncos Monday. Veteran Dontrelle Inman is questionable for this Sunday's game, while rookie Mike Williams was ruled out.

Goff was the third highest rated QB in Week One, posting a 117.9 rating and completing 21 of 29 passes for 396 yards and a touchdown with no picks.

Gurley made the most of his second chance as he punched in the Rams first touchdown when he ran up the gut from the one-yard line with 9:59 remaining in the half.

The Rams tied it at 20 after the fake punt. To his credit, he came through at the end, completing four of four passes on the winning drive with two completions to convert third downs including the game victor to Ryan Grant.
