The Washington Redskins and St. Louis Rams had very different starts to the regular season, and both will be looking for a win on Sunday afternoon.

The Redskins' fans had a lot to be excited about after the opener, as Robert Griffin III had a fantastic NFL debut. RGIII threw for 320 yards with a pair of touchdowns, then rushed for an additional 42 yards, as the Redskins knocked off the New Orleans Saints on the road last weekend.

The Rams dropped a heartbreaker, as the Lions managed to score the go-ahead touchdown in their 27-23 victory with less than 10 seconds remaining on the clock Sunday. St. Louis only manged 250 yards of total offense in the loss, but allowed the Lions to gain 429 yards.

Odds-makers seem to be buying into RGIII, as they have the Redskins as slight favorites over the Rams. The Redskins are generally favored by a field goal. The over/under has been set at 45 points.

Kickoff for this one is scheduled for Sunday afternoon at 4:05 p.m. ET from St. Louis, and the game can be seen on FOX.
