Washington comes off a Monday night loss at Dallas heading out on the road again to face the winless Rams.
St. Louis tries to break its 2011 victory cherry Sunday as the Rams host the surprising Redskins, who many don't believe are as good as their 2-1 start might indicate.
The Rams have covered all four meetings since 2005 between these teams and they should be hungry at home with road games at Green Bay and Dallas looming in the next two weeks.
