England was a tad unlucky not to come away with anything from France, with the latter just about holding on for a 26-24 win last Saturday.
With Scotland suffering a big loss to Ireland in their opening fixture of the tournament, England will be confident of registering their first victory in this year's Six Nations, even if the match will be played at the Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh.
The main concern for England going into the Scotland game is the state of the Murrayfield pitch. "We knew it wouldn't be the best," backs coach Andy Farrell said. "It was a cutting up a little bit while we were training.
"Who knows what will happen? It could teem it down and the pitch would be very bad anyway. It's the same for both sides. It really doesn't bother us. We're ready for any type of game."
Moving away from the disappointing defeat to France will be the major thing for the England players and Farrell insisted his team were fully focused on toppling Scotland. "We want to build on what we started against France," he added. "The boys are pretty excited about this one.
"We played at a hectic pace in Paris. We were the aggressors of that and the ones pushing the pace. It was the most hectic game of the opening round. The players are excited about that and that's the standard we want to repeat.
"Now we need to tidy up a few bits of detail where we can get better and put that into consideration."
Stuart Lancaster revealed he would stick with the same players that went so close to topping France last weekend, and the England coach is not taking a victory over Scotland, who lost 28-6 to Ireland in their opening encounter, for granted.
"It's good to be able to select the same players and they are all determined to put last week's result behind us and build on the performance," Lancaster said. "Scotland will be hugely motivated by their defeat in Dublin and, as we found two years ago, Murrayfield is a tough place to play."
