4. Tyler Higbee Scores Twice For The Rams

Higbee is off to a slow start this season after being named No. 1 on the depth chart at the tight end position. This is except for a game against the Philadelphia Eagles where he finished with five catches for 54 yards and three touchdowns. Now, he will prepare to go up against one of the worst teams in the league at defending the tight end.

Washington has struggled defending tight ends for years now, mostly Zach Ertz. They allowed a touchdown to both Ertz and Dallas Goedert in Week 1.

Last week against the Baltimore Ravens, Mark Andrews finished with two scores and Higbee will be the next to score multiple touchdowns. Washington has difficulty defending big, pass catching tight ends and that is exactly what Higbee is.

There are plenty of weapons on the Rams’ offense. Woods and Kupp is an elite receiving duo. Attention will be on the outside while Higbee is being guarded by a linebacker on the inside.
