ST. LOUIS, Sept. 16 (UPI) -- Sam Bradford tossed three touchdown passes and Danny Amendola racked up 160 receiving yards Sunday in the St. Louis Rams' 31-28 win over Washington.

Bradford hurled for 310 yards on 26-of-35 attempts -- mainly targeting Amendola, who made 15 catches and scored a touchdown as the Rams (1-1) snapped an eight-game losing streak dating to last season.

Brandon Gibson and Matthew Mulligan each hauled in a scoring strike, and Daryl Richardson rushed for 83 yards on 15 carries for St. Louis.

The Redskins (1-1) lost despite a good second pro game from first-round draft choice Robert Griffin III, who completed 20-for-29 passes for 206 yards, one touchdown and one interception.

Griffin also racked up 82 rushing yards on 11 carries.
