rescue today forwashington. brian orakpo with 2 1/2 sacks and bradford will be thankful he does enough to face any of those guys again this year. the 2 1/2 sacks not a career high for orakpo. he had four in 2009, but here we are in 2011 and this is a defense that is back to being a prideful unit. forced to bail out the offense after multiple mishaps and they did. lindsay murphy with more now from st. louis. >> reporter: the redskins defense stepped up big time for a struggling rex grossman. they held the st. louis rams to 172 yards of total offense, got another forced fumble from ryan kerrigan and had seven sacks on the night. one of those guys who contributed in the sack department, stephen bowen. >> we tried to get our timing, try to get after them and make it easy for the guys in the back end. we just tried to dominate them. they had less than 200 yards total offense and i couldn't ask any more from my defense at all. >> reporter: how big is this victory heading into a bye week

much like the red redskins, the cowboys and eagles jumped out to early leads today. only dallas and philly could not sustain it. let's start with the city of brotherly love where michael vick and the eagles welcomed alex smith. they welcomed him pretty good, vick with the most troubled pass from shawn mccoy from 5- yard out. 3rd quarter now, 23-10, alex smith to former terp veer mon davis. sprang wind chill -- vernon davis. 9ers rally from 29 to shock the eagles 24-23 and rookies coach jim harbaugh leaves the nfc west with a 3-0 run. 1st quarter no score, tony

welcome back to the washington area nissan dealers sports xtra. >> look, if you had told any redskins fan or any redskin they would be 3-1 heading into the bye week, you would have had a lot of sign me up, but look, now the team has 14 days without game in the eagles come to fedex field and it's not all good feelings because you can count rick doc walker as one of the many men who was not satisfied today. >> it's always great to win, but if you want to win in the big picture, you have to be critical of yourself and that was ridiculous. we should have put 30 up on this club. they were not very good today and when ryan torain came in running like a mad man, 100

yards in the half and we tease him. if we feed the belly of the beast, i think we dominate the day. instead it became way too much tension here on the road, but it's the nfl. so you respect the win, but i don't like the manner in which we ended it. >> doc had a good day. he had a good pregame, a good postgame and he was good tonight on nissan sports xtra. tomorrow i'll be live at redskins park at 5:00 and 6:00. mike shanahan will speak in the afternoon. the players will have a practice tuesday and be off. have a great night. i'll see you tomorrow. >> thank you for watching sports xtra brought to you by your washington area nissan dealers.
