December 24-- Skins D is torched in St Louis, fall to 5-10 after 37-31 OT loss

The Skins gave up a season high 579 yards losing to the Rams in overtime 37-31.. Stephen Jackson had over 250 yards of offense himself, Marc Bulger threw for 388 yards and four touchdowns overcoming a 14 point second half deficit to stay alive in the playoff race.. Washington falls to 5 and 10.. After not scoring a touchdown in their previous nine trips to the red zone, Washington went 4 for 4 with three rushing touchdowns and a Jason Campbell touchdown pass to Chris Cooley..
The Skins got a Stephen Jackson fumble late in the fourth quarter down 3 and turned it into a long field goal to tie.. The Skins had the game in hand when Ladell Betts ran the ball inside the Rams 20 but fumbled on the play.. St. Louis missed a game winning field goal as time expired forcing overtime.. Betts had his fifth straight 100 plus yard rush day tying a franchise record held by Rob Goode and Clinton Portis.. He can break the record in the season finale against the Giants.. It was only the 6th fumble of the season for Washington, that was tied fro league best entering the game..
Washington got a blocked punt from Vernon Fox and a 52 yard field goal from Shaun Suisham highliting a good day for the specila teams, but in overtime allowed a long punt return by Shawn McDonald that gave the Rams the ball inside Skins territory that led to the game winning TD run by Jackson..

CB Shawn Springs fractured his shoulder in the game’s first drive and did not return, he will be placed on IR ending his season and potentially career in Washington, his cap number is very high next year and he is likely in a position of having to restructure of potentially be released..
DE Phillip Daniels was carted off the field after his throat closed up on him.. He said he has never had something like that happen to him before.. The issue subsided when he started taking some oxygen and he had hoped to return to the game but trainers would not allow him to do so.. He’ll be re-evaluated during the week but says he wants to play against the Giants..
S Vernon Fox suffered a thumb injury.. FB Mike Sellars suffered a shoulder injury..
LB Marcus Washington was placed on IR before the game due to a sprained knee, his roster spot was taken by RB Nehemiah Broughton..

Gregg Williams said one game will not ruin all the progress made in the season’s last month, but a day like this will force him to re-evaluate everything when the season ends.. Williams said the schemes, the players in it, everything will be looked at in the offseason.. The players and Williams gave a lot of credit to the Rams for their play.. Most proclaimed Jackson to be one of the best backs they have faced, Williams also said Marc Bulger’s accuracy was the best he’s seen in quite a while..
