The St. Louis Rams welcome RGIII and the Washington Redskins to the Edward Jones Dome on Sunday afternoon for the home opener. RGIII is looking to break all kind of rookie records, including the one for the most hype ever ... which isn't to say the kid doesn't deserve a little hype. The Rams will be making records with mustaches, the most fake mustaches in the same building at the same time. Alert the Nobel people.

Washington is favored to win by three and a half points. They will not have PIerre Garcon, but they have ample weapons for RGIII to work with. The most important matchup for the Rams is probably a healthy Rodger Saffold versus Brian Orakpo. The Redskins linebacker won that battle last year, and if the Rams are going to win they need to score points.

A win would do wonders for the Rams, especially at a time when the rest of the division is looking surprisingly competitive. They almost had one last week. They need to nail it down this week.

GO RAMS!
