You wouldn't expect a matchup between a 2-1 Washington Redskins club and a 0-3 St. Louis Rams club to draw much dissension, but alas, the internet appears to have torn itself to pieces trying to pick a winner this week. A fairly decent start for the Redskins apparently isn't enough to offset their futile recent history, or Rex Grossman, with oddsmakers setting the Rams as just one point underdogs.
SB Nation's Andrew Sharp is one of Washington's nonbelievers, as is CBS Sports' entire panel of NFL experts. Pete Prisco thinks that Rams need this game more, and that Sam Bradford will bounce back to lead his team to a one-point victory.
ESPN and Yahoo! Sports placed themselves firmly in the Redskins' camp, with 10 out of 13 experts between them siding with Washington. ESPN's Accuscore prognostication machine took the Redskins to cover with a final score of 21.7-19.8. Peter King went out of the box by taking the Redskins to win by more than a field goal, and predicting another disappearing act for Bradford.
Okay. Someone's taken Sam Bradford somewhere and has subbed his evil twin under center for the Rams. Somebody confess. Quick, before the Rams have another one of those truly meaningless seasons we're so used to seeing them have.
