The Redskins lead the Rams at halftime, 21-16 at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis. After the first quarter, the Redskins had taken a 14-3 advantage, but St. Louis managed to score a touchdown and a pair of field goals in the second period.
Greg Zuerlein kicked a 33-yard field goal to cut the Redskins' lead down to just one possession. Then, rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III found Leonard Hankerson down the middle of the field for a 68-yard touchdown, stretching the lead to 21-6. It was Griffin's second longest touchdown pass of the young season and Hankerson's first career touchdown reception.
But the Rams were successful in closing the second quarter with a pair of scoring drives -- a seven-play, 75-yard drive capped by a one-yard touchdown pass from Sam Bradford to Danny Amendola, then another field goal by Zuerlein just as the half ended.
Griffin and Bradford are having quite the duel in this one. The rookie is 8-of-11 on his passes for 110 yards in the first half. Bradford is 17-23 for 181 yards and a touchdown pass.
