The Rams became the first team since the 2009 Cowboys to pull off back to back shutouts.

Following a 52-0 win over the Raiders, the Rams pulled off a 24-0 win against the Redskins who got nothing going offensively.

Redskins head coach Jay Gruden started Colt McCoy again in this one but the former Texas Longhorns quarterback was unable to produce any points while filling in for Robert Griffin III.

McCoy was 20 of 32 for 199 yards twice being picked off. He did lead the Redskins in rushing yards with 11 on two attempts.

The fans at Fed Ex Field regularly called for the return of former No. 2 overall pick Robert Griffin III. Griffin was drafted by the Redskins after they traded a bounty of picks to the Rams.

McCoy was injured late in the game leaving the Redskins to place Griffin back on the field. During Griffin’s limited snaps he was 3 of 4 for 33 yards.

Reports recently around Washington have suggested another power struggle between owner Daniel Snyder, general manager Bruce Allen and head coach Gruden.

The Redskins and Gruden likely have no option but to turn back to Griffin next week.
