The Rams made their comeback after it appeared coach Jeff Fisher benched running back Steven Jackson for drawing an unsportsmanlike-conduct penalty in the second quarter. Fisher said after the game that Jackson actually had a groin injury.

Griffin led the Redskins (1-1) to a 21-6 lead, but the Rams (1-1) came back, thanks to the pass-catching of Amendola. The receiver tied an NFL record with 12 first-half receptions and caught a 1-yard touchdown pass to cut the Redskins' lead to 21-13 at halftime. Bradford had second-half scoring passes of 34 yards to Brandon Gibson and 1 yard to Matt Mulligan.

Griffin ran for two touchdowns and passed for a third for Washington (1-1).

The Redskins got a final shot after DeAngelo Hall recovered Rams running back Daryl Richardson's fumble at the Washington 37 with 2:40 to go. Billy Cundiff, though, was wide right and well short on a 62-yard field-goal attempt with 1:13 left.
