The St. Louis Rams achieved their second shutout in a row with a 24-0 win on the road against the Washington Redskins.
The St. Louis Rams improved to 6-7 with a shutout win on the road against the Washington Redskins as quarterback Colt McCoy proved unable to keep Robert Griffin III’s bench status set in stone.
The Rams defense came up with six sacks and two interceptions, showing the potential that caused some fans to label them as a sneaky playoff contender. They also showed they can shut out teams other than the Oakland Raiders.
Linebacker James Laurinaitis and defensive end Robert Quinn each came up with 1.5 sacks. Quarterback Shaun Hill had a strong performance as well with 213 yards and two touchdown passes on 16-of-22 passing.
Tight end Jared Cook caught both of these touchdown passes and finished with four receptions for 61 yards.
For the Redskins, frustration continued at the quarterback position as McCoy was held to 199 yards and two interceptions on 20-of-32 passing.
The running game was practically non-existent as McCoy led the Redskins with 11 rushing yards, and Alfred Morris was held to six yards on eight carries.
