The Redskins are on the West Coast in Week 2 of the 2017 NFL season to take on former offensive coordinator Sean McVay and the Los Angeles Rams.
The first-year head coach led the Rams to a 46-9 blowout victory over the Colts in Week 1 while the Redskins fell to the Eagles 30-17.
The Week 2 showdown is not a must-win for the Redskins, but it's an important one. All eyes will be on Kirk Cousins and the Redskins offense following a lackluster performance in Week 1.
CSN has you covered with all the stats, highlights, and in-game analysis from Sunday when the game kicks off on FOX at 4:25 p.m. ET.

REDSKINS VS. RAMS LIVE UPDATES:
7:15 p.m.: Reed and Moses have both returned.
7:11 p.m.: The Rams tied up the game after this gutsy fake punt:
6:50 p.m.: Redskins players are leaving with injuries on seemingly every play. Jordan Reed and Morgan Moses are two such important guys now watching instead of playing.
5:50 p.m.: Chris Thompson scored a touchdown. No, this isn't an incorrect copy and paste. He scored again, this time from WAY out on a well-executed draw play.

5:46 p.m.: After some ill-timed fades, an injury to Rob Kelley and a major change in momentum, the Rams have made it a three point ballgame. Remember how fun the first quarter was, though?
5:08 p.m.: The Rams didn't get the ball back for long before Josh Norman forced a fumble by Todd Gurley. Washington recovered the ball in great field position.
Yes. Josh Norman did my favorite thing: The Football Punch.— danny rouhier (@funnydanny) September 17, 2017
FUMBLE forced by Josh Norman, recovered by Terrell McClain! #Redskins offense is back in the driver's seat at Rams 30-yard line.— 106.7 The Fan (@1067theFan) September 17, 2017
5:03 p.m.: The Redskins offense broke through in the red zone thanks to a run from newly extended Chris Thompson. The score was reviewed, but upheld.
Great block from Terrelle Pryor - better run from Thompson. 25 is a player man— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) September 17, 2017
#Skins RB Chris Thompson continues to show toughness! Replay upholds TD. Skin lead Rams 10-0. Thompson has both Skins' off. TD this season— Liz Clarke (@lizclarketweet) September 17, 2017
4:31 p.m.: A rookie in the secondary is getting some early playing time after not seeing much of the field in the opener:
Yep. Nicholson is the safety in nickel. When Fuller comes in, so does Nicholson.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) September 17, 2017
The safety out of Michigan State had a nice QB hurry on Jared Goff on the game's first drive.
4:14 p.m.: The game is almost here and there are still plenty of good steats still available.
4:00 p.m.: We're 25 minutes away from game time. You ready?
3:30 p.m.: It's go time on CSN. Join Chick Hernandez, Trevor Matich and Brian Mitchell for your official Redskins pregame show. (Watch it live here.)
3:10 p.m.: Josh Doctson is there. Is todfay the day he finally has a breakout game?

3:05 p.m.: The inactives list is in. If you are hoping to see Mack Brown finally get some touches, you will be sadly disappointed.
2:51 p.m.: The Redskins and Rams are playing at the L.A. Coliseum today. If you watched college football last night, you may remember that USC and Texas played at the Coliseum as well. Needless to say, the field is not in great shape.

2:40 p.m.: I'm interested in seeing what the Redskins do with Josh Doctson today. He was on the injury list all week, and people are clamoring to see him get reps. But he has not been consistent in practice and Jay Gruden needs him to do that. It's a bit of the "chicken or the egg" scenario. But regardless, the Redskins need productivity from their WRs.
2:35 p.m.: What to watch for today? There are five Redskins players under heavy pressure.
2: 30 p.m.: Welcome to our Week 2 live blog of the Redskin vs. Rams game. It's me, Troy Machir again. Hopefully Week 2 is better than Week 1. You can follow JP Finlay and Rich Tandler too if you'd like. They're out in Los Angeles at the game.
