UP NEXT

St. Louis Rams at Washington Redskins

When: Sunday, 1 p.m. Where: FedEx Field TV/radio: Chs. 5, 45, ESPN 980

Outlook: Washington goes from a road game against a Super Bowl contender to a home opener against one of the worst teams in football. The Rams failed to score Sunday, losing 28-0 in Seattle. And aside from former UVa defensive end Chris Long and bookend Leonard Little, there’s little chance you’ve heard of any players on the Rams’ defense. But last year, coming off four consecutive wins, Washington lost 19-17 to the Rams at FedEx. So you can’t put this one up on the board just yet.
