The "Play of the Day" is a weekly Washington Redskins feature throughout the 2009 NFL season. It takes a critical play, turning point, or a play that is representative of a larger theme and examines it in-depth.
Similar to NFL Matchup on ESPN, the Play of the Day is intended to provide insight and knowledge by breaking down a key play from the Redskins' previous game.
This week, there weren’t many highlights to choose from.
In the second quarter, Steven Jackson broke open a 62-yard run to setup the lone touchdown in the game. The Rams went up 7-6 at halftime, sending the Redskins fans into a booing frenzy.
It was just one play in the arsenal of plays the Rams ran for Jackson: whether as a runner, split out wide as a receiver or in the slot.
The Rams moved him all over the field with great success and against an elite player, the Redskins tackling was sub-par on this play.
