Here is a look at some of the numbers from the Redskins 9-7 home opener victory over the St. Louis Rams on Sunday at Fed Ex Field.

362 - Total yards offense from the Redskins - a much better effort than last week (272), despite their obvious red zone struggles.

242 - Yards passing for Jason Campbell - he was better this week than he was last week.

125 - Yards passing for Marc Bulger; the Redskins secondary played well.

104 - Yards rushing for Steven Jackson - most of them came on a 58-yarder.

83 - Yards receiving, and seven catches for Chris Cooley, who had another big game for the Skins.

79 - Yards for Clinton Portis on 19 carries.

41 - Yards receiving (4 catches) in Malcolm Kelly's best game as a Redskin.

35 - Minutes of possession for the Redskins, to the Rams 25 - Washington controlled the game everywhere but on the scoreboard.

28 - Yards rushing (4 carries) for Campbell, who used his feet much better on Sunday.

8 - Different Redskins caught Campbell passes - C. Cooley (7), M. Kelly (4), A. Randle El (4), S. Moss (3), L. Betts (1), M. Sellers (1), C. Portis (2), and F. Davis (1).

5 - Tackles and a forced fumble in a big game from Chris Horton.

4 - Red zone possessions, and no touchdowns - nine points total - that's abysmal, and its the reason that the Redskins fans will be whining all week despite a win.

3 - Carries for Marcus Mason, and though he had just 5 yards, it was great to see him get into a game for the first time.

2 - Punts for the Redskins all day; Hunter Smith averaged 48 yards on the 2 kicks.

1 - Sack for Cornelius Griffin, who had his best game in the burgundy and gold for years - congrats Corny.

1 - Forced fumble for Rocky McIntosh, who was making plays all over the field.

1 - Win. When all is said and done, the only number that matters is the one win - the Redskins first of the season.

Off to Detroit to face the 0-2 Lions, who gave up 27 unanswered points to the Minnesota Vikings in a 27-13 loss.
