Rams beat Redskins in close game
The Redskins scored a touchdown on the very first play, but it didn’t matter, as the Redskins beat themselves and lost 31-28 to St. Louis. The Redskins were driving down the field and had a chance for a late field goal before a personal foul was called on Josh Morgan for throwing the ball at cornerback Cortland Finnegan. RGIII was mostly successful, running for over 80 yards and throwing only one interception. “They dared us to run and we ran it. We moved the ball and we scored points,” Griffin said. “We just didn’t score enough points.
“You get caught up in watching the scoreboard and get caught up in negative plays and things, you’ve got no chance to win,” Rams coach Jeff Fisher said, “So, you don’t watch the scoreboard, you just go play. You make plays and the scoreboard changes.” St. Louis’ star running back Stephen Jackson missed most of the game in an apparent benching, but was later clarified as a groin injury. The Redskins play the Bengals next week.
