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.
• 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.
• Tight end
• 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
• Running back
• Wide receiver
• 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.
• 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.
