NFL: Washington 34, Detroit 3

LANDOVER, Md., Oct. 7 (UPI) -- Jason Campbell passed for two touchdowns and 248 yards Sunday as Washington trounced the Detroit Lions, 34-3.

Following a bye week, Washington built a 14-0 halftime lead as Campbell threw a scoring pass to Chris Cooley and Mike Sellers scored on a 1-yard run in the second quarter.

Detroit's misery continued, as its lone score came on Jason Hanson's 39-yard field goal with 2:27 left in the third, and quarterback Jon Kitna was dumped in the end zone for a third quarter safety.

Wide receiver Antwaan Randle El caught seven passes for 100 yards, Sellers also caught a touchdown pass, and Carlos Rogers scored on a 61-yard interception return for the Redskins, who averted a two-game skid before next Sunday's contest at Green Bay.

Kitna was 16-for-29 for 106 yards with two interceptions, and Kevin Jones rushed for 48 yards on 11 attempts as the Lions lost for the 21st straight time at Washington or Landover, Md.
