This week, the Washington Redskins travel to St. Louis to play the struggling 0-3 St. Louis Rams.

Many people had their doubts about the Redskins in the offseason, but the Redskins have silenced their critics so far, starting off their season with a divisional win against the New York Giants, and narrowly losing in Dallas in a Monday night divisional matchup where the Cowboys were kept out of the end zone and had to score six field goals to beat them.

It will be interesting to see how both teams respond to their Week 3 losses.

The Rams have struggled all year and are in serious danger of getting knocked out of playoff contention early in the season. However, they do have the fortune of playing in the weak NFC West, so a loss this Sunday may put them at 0-4, but in a division where it may only take seven wins to earn the NFC West crown, the Rams might not be in as much trouble as other 0-4 teams.

The Redskins are favored to win this one, especially considering their solid play for the last three weeks. Can they surprise many doubters and get to a 3-1 start to their season, or will they be upset by a desperate Rams team?

Updated Score: Redskins 17, Rams 10
