Panthers, Redskins have something in common - no offense

The offensive woes continue for both the Carolina Panthers and the Washington Redskins.

The Panthers' Matt Moore threw three interceptions and the team ran for just 25 yards on the day as the Panthers were never really in it and fell 20-10 to the St. Louis Rams.

The Panthers, trailing just 10-3 in the second half, had the ball up to midfield when Steve Smith fumbled after making a catch. Five plays later, the Rams scored and the game was virtually out of reach at 17-3.

The Redskins' Donovan McNabb spent much of the afternoon on the ground as he was hurried, knocked down and also sacked six times as the Redskins fell 37-25 to the Detroit Lions.

The Redskins had only 80 yards rushing, 30 of which came on a scramble by McNabb, who was benched in the last two minutes of the game with Redskins down just seven.

"Offensively speaking, they've got nothing," Former Redskin John Riggins said of the Skins after the game. "The offensive line is a mess."

The Redskins actually had the lead in the fourth quarter after Garner's Brandon Banks ran a kickoff back 96 yards to give the Skins a 25-20 advantage.

The Redskins fall to 4-4 while the Panthers fall to 1-6.
