Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III takes the show to St. Louis for this weekend's Week 2 matchup.
The Washington Redskins (1-0) play their second straight road game to open the season, as they visit the St. Louis Rams Sunday in a battle of young quarterbacks. Rookie Robert Griffin III will look to continue his hot start while third-year starter Sam Bradford aims to lead his Rams to their first victory of the season.
Griffin was spectacular in his NFL debut last weekend in New Orleans, leading the Redskins to the upset 40-32 victory. He completed 19 of 26 passes for 320 yards and two touchdowns while also rushing for 42 yards. Bradford was 17-of-25 for 198 yards and a touchdown in the Rams' 27-23 loss at Detroit.
Kickoff is scheduled for 4:05 p.m. ET (3:05 p.m. in St. Louis) and the game will be televised by FOX. Washington opened as a 3-point favorite, with the over/under total at 45.
