Rams late rally defeat Redskins
The Washington Redskins faced off against the St. Louis Rams looking for their second win but came out with a 31-28 loss.
Both young quarterbacks played well but Ram’s Sam Bradford came out on top. In the first half, it was all about the Redskins but then, Bradford brought the Rams back in the second half in a fourth quarter rally. Bradford threw for 310 yards and three touchdowns as he connected with receiver Danny Amendola for 160 yards, according to ESPN.
Throughout the game, there was couple of unsportsmanlike conducts that shaped the game. One was when Ram’s running back Steven Jackson spiked the ball out of anger after a touchdown call has been overturned. As a result, Jackson was benched for the rest of the game.
Another unsportsmanlike conduct occurred when Redskin’s Josh Morgan threw the football at Rams cornerback Cortland Finnegan in retaliation from Finnegan’s shove. Even though Finnegan started it, it was Morgan that got caught which led to a 62-yard field goal kick instead of a 47-yarder, according to St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Sunday’s game was a great way to test if both teams are going in the right direction as they both are rebuilding.
