STREAKS, STATS AND NOTES – In past two starts against Washington (when he was with Eagles), Rams QB Nick Foles is 2-0, going 44 for 67 for 623 yards, three TDs and zero interceptions. … In OT victory over two-time NFC champ Seattle, Foles was 18 for 27 for 297 yards, one score and no picks, for 115.8 passer rating. … Key matchup is Rams WR-PR Tavon Austin against Redskins special teams. Austin returned punt 75 yards for touchdown last week, in addition to 16-yard TD run; last time he faced Washington, he had 78-yard punt return for TD. Redskins, meanwhile, gave up 69-yard return TD to Miami’s Jarvis Landry in their Week 1 loss. … DT Aaron Donald had two of Rams’ six sacks against Seahawks. Donald has at least one sack in seven of his past eight games. … Redskins QB Kirk Cousins threw two interceptions in loss to Dolphins last week, raising career total to 21 picks in 15 NFL games, along with 19 TD passes. … RB Alfred Morris gained 121 yards on 25 carries against Miami. … Fantasy: Redskins TE Jordan Reed looks to be Cousins’ favorite target, especially with DeSean Jackson unavailable, and had seven catches and TD last week; Rams RB Benny Cunningham had career-high 122 yards from scrimmage in Week 1, with 45 rushing and 77 receiving.
