The St. Louis Rams had seven sacks in their shutout of Washington’s NFL team, 24-0, at FedEx Field on Dec. 7. It was the first time Washington (3-10) has been shut out since 2011.

Washington quarterback Colt McCoy was 20-of-32 for 199 yards and two interceptions.

Both teams were scoreless in the first quarter. Washington’s first drive of the game seemed promising after multiple double-digit completions, but a deep pass by McCoy was intercepted in the red zone by Rodney McLeod.

Early into the second quarter, St. Louis tight end Jared Cook caught a 35-yard touchdown reception from quarterback Shaun Hill to put the first points on the board. Greg Zuerlein missed the extra-point kick; he would go on to miss two out of three field goals.

With about six minutes left in the third quarter, Washington faked a punt on fourth down with 5 yards to go. Punter Tress Way was unable to convert, and St. Louis (6-7) took over on offense at Washington’s 35-yard line. Wide receiver Stedman Bailey caught a 36-yard reception on third down to set up Cook for another touchdown.

Washington’s NFL team went three-and-out on the next drive. St. Louis wide receiver Tavon Austin returned the punt for a 78-yard touchdown to give the Rams a 24-0 lead with just under two minutes left in the third quarter.

Washington had a 12-play, 60-yard drive in the fourth quarter to push the ball down the field. At St. Louis’ 21-yard line on fourth down, McCoy threw a deep pass intended for tight end Jordan Reed, and was intercepted by safety T.J. McDonald to prevent the possibility of a Washington comeback.

Robert Griffin III entered the game with two minutes left to play, and was sacked once.

Shaun Hill finished 16-of-22 for 213 yards and two touchdowns. Cook caught four receptions for 61 yards, while running back Tre Mason had 20 carries for 66 yards.

For Washington, wide receiver Pierre Garcon led the team with nine receptions for 95 yards. McCoy was the leading rusher with two carries for 11 yards.

With the loss, Washington’s NFL team slides to a five-game losing streak. They will square off against NFC East rival New York Giants on Dec. 14 at MetLife Stadium.
