      • The victory improved the Redskins to 6-3-1 this season.
      • The Redskins now have six wins through 10 games for the first time since 2008 (6-4). At 6-3-1, the Redskins' .650 winning percentage is the team's best through 10 games since 1996 (.700).
      • The Redskins’ 42 points were the second-most by the team since the arrival of Head Coach Jay Gruden in 2014, trailing only a 47-point performance in Week 10 of the 2015 season vs. New Orleans.

      • The Redskins gained 515 yards of offense. It was the team’s second 500-yard game of the season, tying the most 500-yard games in a single season in records dating back to 1950 (accomplished previously in 1950, 1981, 1989 and 1999).
      • The 515 yards were the Redskins’ most in a game that did not require overtime since a 559-yard effort in Week 11 of the 1991 season against Atlanta. The Redskins recorded a 546-yard game in Week 8 this season, a game that required a full 15-minute overtime period.

      • The Redskins finished with two 100-yard receivers (Pierre Garçon and Jamison Crowder) and a 100-yard rusher (Robert Kelley) in a single game for the first time since Sept. 12, 1999 vs. Dallas when receivers Michael Westbrook and Albert Connell and running back Stephen Davis accomplished the feat.
      • Between Garçon (116) and Crowder (102), the Redskins featured two 100-yard receiving performances in a single game for the first time since Week 3 of the 2014 season (Garçon and DeSean Jackson at Philadelphia).
      • The game was the Redskins’ first appearance on NBC’s Sunday Night Football since Dec. 1, 2013, vs. the New York Giants.

      • On a 70-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter, Cousins became the sixth quarterback in team history to record back-to-back 3,000-yard passing seasons (Sonny Jurgensen, 1966-67; Joe Theismann, 1983-84; Mark Rypien, 1991-92; Jason Campbell, 2008-09; Robert Griffin III, 2012-13).

      • The performance was Cousins’ 17th career regular season game with multiple touchdown passes.
      • With the touchdowns, Cousins pushed his career passing touchdowns total to 64, including 17 in 2016.
      • Running back Robert Kelley recorded career highs in rushing attempts (24), rushing yards (137) and tied a team record with three rushing touchdowns.
      • Kelley’s performance marked the 25th time a member of the Redskins has recorded three rushing touchdowns in a single game and the first since Darrel Young on Nov. 3, 2013.

      • Kelley later added touchdown runs of one yards and four yards in the fourth quarter.
      • Kelley’s final touchdown of the game was set up by a 66-yard run, the team’s longest run from scrimmage since a 76-yard rush by Robert Griffin III on Oct. 14, 2012. It also marked the longest run by a Redskins rookie since that same Griffin run.
      • Kelley’s 100-yard rushing game was the first of his career. According to Kelley, it was his first 100-yard rushing performance since high school.
      • Wide receiver Pierre Garçon recorded a season-high 116 yards on six receptions with one touchdown.
      • The game was the 15th 100-yard game of Garçon’s career and his first since Week 3 of the 2014 season at Philadelphia. Nine of Garçon’s 15 games with 100-plus receiving yards have come as a member of the Redskins.

      • The 70-yard touchdown was tied for the third-longest in Garcon’s career and his longest since a 70-yard touchdown vs. Tennessee in Week 7 of the 2014 season.
      • The touchdown pass was Cousins’ fifth career touchdown pass of 70 yards or more and his first since Week 15 of the 2015 season vs. Buffalo (77-yard pass to DeSean Jackson).
      • With his second reception of the game, a 17-yard gain in the first quarter, Garçon became the 11th player to record 4,000 receiving yards with the Redskins.
      • Garçon extended his streak of consecutive regular season games played with a reception to 96, the sixth-longest active streak in the NFL. Sixty-eight of the games in Garçon’s streak have come with Washington, the third-longest streak by a member of the Redskins since the 1970 merger.
      • Wide receiver Jamison Crowder gained 102 yards on three receptions, including a 44-yard touchdown.
      • The 100-yard game was Crowder’s third of the season and the fourth of his career.
      • Crowder’s 34.0-yard average during the game set a career high and was the best by a member of the Redskins with at least three receptions since Matt Jones in Week 10 of the 2015 season (43.7).
      • The 44-yard touchdown was the second-longest receiving touchdown of Crowder’s career, trailing a 55-yard receiving touchdown in Week 3 at New York. It was the third-longest total touchdown of his career, including an 85-yard punt return touchdown in Week 5 at Baltimore.
      • Crowder pushed his career-high receiving touchdown total to six, becoming the first member of the Redskins to record at least six touchdowns in a season within the first two years of a career since Fred Davis in 2009 (six in his second NFL season).
      • The Redskins opened the game’s scoring with a 17-yard touchdown pass from Cousins to wide receiver DeSean Jackson in the first quarter.
      • The receiving touchdown was Jackson’s second of the season and the 44th of his career.
      • The touchdown was Jackson’s first since Week 3 against the New York Giants.
      • The 17-yard touchdown was the second-shortest score of Jackson’s 12 receiving touchdowns as a member of the Redskins. The only touchdown of Jackson’s Redskins tenure shorter than the 17-yarder was a 13-yard touchdown reception at Minnesota in Week 9 of the 2014 season. Chronologically, Jackson has receiving touchdowns of 81, 60, 64, 13, 42, 69, 56, 63, 28, 77, 44 and 17 yards with Washington.

      • With the effort, Reed (231) passed Rod Gardner (227) for 15th on the Redskins' all-time receptions list.
      • Linebacker Ryan Kerrigan started his 90th consecutive game, tied for second-most among active NFL linebackers. Kerrigan has not missed a start in his NFL career.
      • With a second-quarter sack, Kerrigan pushed his season sack total to 8.0, joining Jared Allen, Derrick Thomas, DeMarcus Ware and Reggie White as the only players to register at least 7.5 sacks in each of the first six seasons of an NFL career since the NFL adopted sacks as an official statistic in 1982.
      • The Redskins extended their streak of consecutive games with a sack (including postseason play) to 19. Washington, Dallas and Green Bay are tied for the longest active streaks in the NFC.
      • Defensive end Chris Baker recorded a sack in the second quarter, pushing his season sack total to 3.0 and his career sack total to 11.0.
      • Linebacker Will Compton recorded his second career fumble recovery of the season in the fourth quarter.

      • Linebacker Martrell Spaight recorded his first career interception in the fourth quarter, picking off Packers quarterback Brett Hundley.
      • The Redskins forced a three-and-out on Green Bay’s opening possession. Including a three-and-out to open the game against Minnesota last week, the Redskins have now recorded three-and-outs on the first defensive possession of consecutive games for the first time since a three-game stretch in Weeks 6-8 of the 2010 season.
      • The Redskins recorded three-and-outs on each of Green Bay’s first three possessions, marking the first time the Redskins have opened a game with three straight defensive three-and-outs since Week 2 of the 2014 season vs. Jacksonville.
      • According to the NFL Media Research Group, the three consecutive three-and-outs by the Redskins’ defense marked the first time a defense had forced three straight three-and-outs to open a game in the career of Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
      • The Redskins have now won four consecutive games at FedExField and are 4-2 at home this season.
      • After recording a five-game winning streak at FedExField last season, the Redskins have now secured a home winning streak of at least four games in back-to-back seasons for the first time since 1991 (six games) and 1992 (four games).
