What happened: The Redskins received and managed a penalty-aided first down before Durant Brooks 50-yard punt rolled dead on the Rams 3. After a one-yard run, safety LaRon Landry recovered Steven Jacksons fumble and Clinton Portis ran in from the 3 for a 7-0 Redskins lead. After the Rams converted first downs twice on 3rd and long, Josh Brown kicked a 51-yard field goal to make it 7-3. A long Redskins drive was negated by Chris Cooleys fumble, the Redskins first offensive turnover of the season.
Analysis: The Rams immediately lived up to their billing as perhaps the NFLs worst team by fumbling deep in their territory on their first possession, setting up a Redskins score. Quarterback Jason Campbell was nailed on a corner blitz, but was accurate, as usual when he found the time. The Redskins defense gave Rams quarterback Marc Bulger too much time to throw.
