St. Louis Rams (-2.5) at Washington Redskins
Finally. After playing a boatload of teams with winning records, the Rams finally had a chance to explode against the hapless Raiders. And explode they did. 52-0, scoring in nearly every way possible, the Rams continued their string of solid play, improving to a 5-7 record that clearly does not do the team’s recent successes justice.
St. Louis had not been the only team playing better entering Week 13, as Washington’s previous five games had included two wins, and only one double-digit loss. The Redskins officially made the switch from quarterback Robert Griffin III to Colt McCoy and, for a brief period of time, looked like they would hang in their game in Indianapolis. That thought proved to be short-lived.
St. Louis, a team on the rise, clearly playing for pride – and doing well at that – goes into Washington and beats the Redskins by ten, covering the spread.
