Rams End Home Slump
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Backup running back Kenneth Darby scored the go-ahead touchdown in the third quarter, helping the St. Louis Rams overcome an injury to Steven Jackson and end a 14-game home losing streak with a 30-16 victory over the Washington Redskins on Sunday.

The Rams (1-2) won for only the second time in 29 games overall behind a strong start and even stronger finish, with the biggest offensive showing under second-year coach Steve Spagnuolo.

St. Louis, which lost its first two games by a total of six points, topped its previous best of 23 points under Spagnuolo in a five-point loss to the Saints last November.

Santana Moss had six receptions for 124 yards and a score for Washington (1-2), but also lost a fumble in the first half that led to a St. Louis touchdown.
