Posted Sep 27, 2013

Before the Redskins kickoff this Sunday vs. the Oakland Raiders, here is a look at benchmarks to keep an eye on, as compiled by Washington Redskins Public Relations.

Before the Redskins kickoff this Sunday vs. the Oakland Raiders, here is a look at benchmarks to keep an eye on, as compiled by Washington Redskins Public Relations.

.

Team:

• The Redskins earning their first win of the season.

• The Redskins posting 20 points for an eighth straight regular season game, dating back to last season, matching the team’s longest streak of 20-point games since scoring 20 or more points in every game from Weeks 9-16 of the 1998 season.

• Executive Vice President/Head Coach Mike Shanahan facing an AFC West opponent for the first time since Dec. 28, 2008, his final game as coach of the Denver Broncos.

 

Offense:

• Tight end Fred Davis gaining two receiving yards to reach 2,000 for his career.

• Quarterback Robert Griffin III throwing for 300 yards in a fourth consecutive game for the first time in his career.

• Griffin III becoming the first Redskins quarterback in the Super Bowl era to throw for 300 yards in four consecutive games.

• Griffin III joining Sonny Jurgensen (five in 1967), Joe Theismann (four in 1983), Jay Schroeder (five in 1986), Mark Rypien (five in 1989), and Brad Johnson (four in 1999) as the only players in team history to register at least four 300-yard passing games in a season.

• Griffin III recording his seventh career 300-yard passing game to tie Sammy Baugh and Jay Schroeder for fourth-most in team history.

• Griffin III throwing two touchdown passes to match Doug Williams for 15th-most in team history (27).

• Wide receiver Leonard Hankerson catching a touchdown pass to match his single-season career high from last season (three).

• Running back Alfred Morris posting his ninth career 100-yard game to tie Ladell Betts for ninth-most in team history.

• Wide receiver Santana Moss scoring a touchdown to tie Stephen Davis for 10th-most total touchdowns in team history (48).

• Moss registering 29 receiving yards to become the fourth player in team history to amass 7,500 receiving yards as a member of the Redskins (Art Monk, Charley Taylor and Gary Clark).

• Moss recording six receptions to pass Gary Clark (549) for third in team history for career receptions as a Redskin.

• Moss catching five passes to become the ninth active player to reach 700 career receptions.

 

Defense:

• Linebacker London Fletcher, the NFL’s active Iron Man, playing his 244th consecutive regular season game to take sole possession of Bill Romanowski’s record by a defensive player since the 1970 merger (243).

• Fletcher starting his 203rd consecutive regular season game as he continues to chase Derrick Brooks for the most consecutive starts by a linebacker in NFL history (208).

• Fletcher intercepting a pass to tie Rich Milot (13) for the fourth-most interceptions by a linebacker in team history.

• Fletcher registering an interception to take sole possession of the league lead for the most interceptions by a linebacker since 2007. Fletcher and now-retired Brian Urlacher each have 12 interceptions since Fletcher joined the Redskins in 2007.

• Fletcher maintaining his status as the only active player with at least 30 career sacks (38.0) and at least 20 career interceptions (23).

• Cornerback DeAngelo Hall returning a fumble for a touchdown to tie Jessie Tuggle for the second-most in NFL history (five). Hall’s four career fumble return touchdowns are currently tied for third in NFL history with Bill Thompson, Derrick Thomas, Keith Bulluck and Ronde Barber.

• Hall intercepting a pass to give him 21 interceptions as a member of the Redskins, which would tie him with Vernon Dean and Lemar Parrish for 10th-most in franchise history.

• Hall returning a fumble for a touchdown to tie Jessie Tuggle for the second-most in NFL history (five). Hall’s four career fumble return touchdowns are currently tied for third in NFL history with Bill Thompson, Derrick Thomas, Keith Bulluck and Ronde Barber.

• Hall returning a fumble for a touchdown to become the first player in NFL history with five fumble returns for touchdowns and four interception returns for touchdowns.

• Linebacker Ryan Kerrigan recording a sack to become the 18th player since 1982 to record 20 sacks with the Redskins.

• Kerrigan returning an interception for a touchdown to become the first linebacker in team history to have an interception return for touchdown in three consecutive seasons.

• Linebacker Brian Orakpo returning to the site of his four-sack performance in December 2009. Orakpo tied a team record with four sacks at Oakland in Week 14 that season.

.

A Win Would...

… give the Redskins’ their first win of the season and snap a three game losing streak.

… even the Redskins’ 2013 road record at 1-1.

… give Executive Vice President/Head Coach Mike Shanahan his 176th career victory as a head coach, including postseason games.

… be Shanahan’s 168th career regular season victory as a head coach.

… improve Shanahan’s all-time record against the teams that comprise the AFC West to 60-34, including postseason games.

… represent Shanahan’s 22nd career victory against the Raiders. His current 21 wins against the Raiders are his most against any opponent.

… make the Redskins 5-8 all-time against the Raiders, including postseason play.

… give the Redskins a three-game winning streak in games played at O.co Coliseum.

… improve the Redskins to 1-0 against AFC West opponents this year.
