](http://www.bdo.com/)The Washington Redskins earned their first victory of the 2015 season on Sunday, defeating the St. Louis Rams, 24-10, in front of an announced crowd of 72,460 at FedExField. * The Redskins improved to 25-13-1 all-time against the Rams, including postseason play. The Redskins are now 23-11-1 all-time against the Rams in regular season play. * The Redskins pushed their all-time record in home games against the Rams to 12-6, including postseason play. The win marked the Redskins' first home victory against the Rams since Sept. 20, 2009. * The win was the Redskins' first against an NFC West opponent since earning a 23-17 victory against the Seattle Seahawks on Nov. 27, 2011. * The Redskins' 17-point halftime lead was the team's largest halftime margin since holding a 25-point halftime lead at Dallas on Thanksgiving Day in 2012. * The Redskins held the ball for 37:44 against St. Louis one week after recording 37:54 of possession against the Dolphins in the season opener. In doing so, the Redskins held the ball for 37 minutes or more in consecutive games for the first time since Weeks 2-3 of the 1992 season. * Kicker Dustin Hopkins and linebacker Terrance Plummer made their NFL debuts. * The game was the ninth meeting between the Redskins and Rams in the last 11 seasons. * Including the season opener vs. Miami last week, the Redskins opened the season with two consecutive home games for the first time since 2011. * Including a 41-10 victory vs. Jacksonville in Week 2 last season, the Redskins have now won consecutive Week 2 games for the first time since winning three straight Week 2 games across the 2007-09 seasons.

Offense:

  • A week after rushing for 161 yards against the Miami Dolphins, the Redskins gained 182 rushing yards against the Rams, marking only the third time since 1950 that the Redskins have opened a season with consecutive 150-yard rushing games (1952 and 2012).

The Redskins have now rushed for at least 150 yards in consecutive games for the first time since Weeks 10-11 of the 2013 season. * Running back Matt Jones recorded career highs in rushing attempts (19), rushing yards (123) and rushing touchdowns (two). * The 100-yard rushing game was the first of Jones' career and the first by a Redskins rookie since Alfred Morris on Dec. 30, 2012 (vs. Dallas). * Running back Alfred Morris added 59 rushing yards on 18 carries. * Between Jones and Morris, the Redskins had two players record at least 10 rushing attempts in a game for the first time since Dec. 1, 2013 vs. the New York Giants. That game also marked the only other time since 2012 that someone other than Morris has led the team in rushing attempts. * With the back-to-back 100-yard rushing games by Morris and Jones, the Redskins had two different players recording 100-yard rushing efforts in consecutive games for the first time since Weeks 6-7 of the 2012 season (Robert Griffin III and Morris). * In the first quarter, Morris surpassed Terry Allen (4,086) for fifth-most rushing yards in Redskins history. * Morris recorded a 35-yard rush in the first quarter, his longest carry since a 37-yard gain in Week 15 of the 2013 season at Atlanta. *

The game was Morris' 50th career regular season start, all consecutive. His 50 consecutive starts are the longest active streak among NFC running backs. * Jones opened the scoring with a 39-yard touchdown run on his first carry of the game. The rushing touchdown was the first of his career. * Jones' 39-yarder was the Redskins' longest rush since Morris' 45-yard touchdown run at Dallas in Week 6 of the 2013 season, a span of 30 games. * Jones' 39-yard touchdown was the longest rushing touchdown by a Redskins rookie since a 76-yard touchdown run by Robert Griffin III vs. Minnesota on Oct. 14, 2012. * Jones' 39-yard run and Morris' 35-yard rush on the Redskins' second drive marked the first time since the turn of the century that the team has recorded two rushes of 35 yards or more on a single drive. The last time the Redskins recorded two rushes of 35 yards or more in a single game also came against the Rams (Dec. 4, 2005). * Wide receiver Pierre Garçon recorded his first touchdown reception of the season – the 29th of his career – on a four-yard pass from Cousins. The touchdown reception was Garçon's first since Oct. 19, 2014 vs. Tennessee. * The touchdown pass was the 20th of Cousins' career. * Wide receiver Ryan Grant recorded a career-long 35-yard reception from Cousins in the first quarter. * Tight end Jordan Reed registered a 29-yard reception in the fourth quarter, his longest catch of the season and his longest since a 30-yard reception on Nov. 30, 2014 at Indianapolis. * Running back Chris Thompson recorded a career long 10-yard reception on a pass from Kirk Cousins on third down to extend a fourth-quarter drive. * The Redskins averaged 13.2 yards per carry in the first quarter, the team's fourth-best first-quarter rushing average since 1991.
