Kendall, meanwhile, took the blame for the loss, saying he should have just knocked the ball down.
"If I do that, all things being equal, we win the game today," he said.
Steven Jackson had 111 total yards, but his fumble on the first possession gave the Redskins an early touchdown. Bulger went 15-for-26 for 136 yards and had two potential interceptions dropped. The Rams, whose offense is run by former Redskins assistant Al Saunders, were outgained 368-200.
Portis ran 21 times for 129 yards, his third straight 100-yard game.
"We just lost to a team that's 0-4," defensive end Jason Taylor said. "We're probably better than them, but they were better than us today."
Notes: Rams CB Ricky Manning Jr. broke a bone in his ankle, leaving the team with three cornerbacks for the second half. RB Brian Leonard (shoulder) and LT Orlando Pace (pulled quad) were also hurt. ... Redskins injuries: RB Ladell Betts (sprained knee), LT Chris Samuels (sprained knee), S Chris Horton (sprained ankle) and WR James Thrash (sprained knee). ... Redskins P Durant Brooks struggled again. His 26-yard punt in the third quarter set up Brown's third field goal. "We have to improve our punting or we're going to be in trouble every game," Zorn said.
