With the Redskins needing to get off to a good start in St. Louis, they do so by scoring the game's first touchdown via a Rex Grossman 6-yard throw to Santana Moss, giving them a quick 7-0 first quarter lead.
Washington's scoring drive lasted 11 plays and went for 69 yards in just under six minutes. The drive was highlighted by a pair of key third down connections from Grossman to Jabar Gaffney.
From there, the Redskins were able to utilize their running back combination of Tim Hightower and Roy Helu to draw them closer to the red zone. Once they got inside the 25 - the part of the field in which they have struggled - they finally cashed in with Grossman lobbing a pass to his left to an open Moss, who secured the catch and toe-tapped in the endzone to give Washington the 7-0 lead.
The Redskins needed to get off to a good start in this game and so far so good.
