Remember the third week of 2009? The Redskins ran into some bad luck in their first two games, but surely they would beat the Lions. They always beat the Lions. Right?
The same can be said this year, as the Redskins were defeated 30-16 by a St. Louis Rams team that had won just six games over the past four seasons. The Redskins went 1-9 on third down in this game.
After being tied for the division lead at 1-1 prior to this week, the Redskins have now fallen to 1-2. Fortunately for them, the Giants lost as well, so the Redskins remain tied with New York and Dallas, but one game behind the Eagles in the NFC East.
