Offense:

  • On a 38-yard completion to wide receiver Jamison Crowder in the second quarter, Cousins reached the 15,000-yard career passing mark, becoming only the fifth player in team history to throw for 15,000 career yards with the Redskins, joining Joe Theismann, Sonny Jurgensen, Sammy Baugh and Mark Rypien.

  • Perine became the first Redskins rookie with back-to-back 100-yard rushing games since Morris in Weeks 12-14 of the 2012 season.

Defense:

  • Linebacker Ryan Kerrigan started his 107th consecutive regular season game, the longest active streak among active NFL linebackers. Kerrigan has not missed a start in his NFL career.
  • Kerrigan recorded 2.0 sacks, his second multi-sack game of the season and his first since Week 8 vs. Dallas.
  • The game was Kerrigan’s 11th career contest with at least 2.0 sacks since entering the NFL in 2011.
  • Kerrigan now has a team-leading 9.0 sacks this season.
  • With a first-quarter sack, his eighth of the season, Kerrigan joined Jared Allen, Derrick Thomas, DeMarcus Ware and Reggie White as the only players in NFL history to record at least 7.5 sacks in each of the first seven seasons of a career since the NFL adopted sacks as an official statistic in 1982.
