LANDOVER, Md. — The Washington Redskins narrowly averted losing at home to the St. Louis Rams for the second straight year, eking out a 9-7 win Sunday.

Serenaded with boos as their long drives dissolved into field goals rather than touchdowns, the Redskins just couldn’t put away the Rams Washington never did reach the end zone, but scoring points three at a time was enough.

Shaun Suisham kicked field goals of 21, 28 and 23 yards as the Redskins had four drives of more than 60 yards that faltered inside the 10. They put the game away — more or less — with a 78-yard drive that ended with a failed fourth-and-1 attempt from the 2 with less than 2 minutes to play, leaving the Rams too far to go.
