      • Kerrigan became the first member of the Redskins to start all 16 games in each of the first six seasons of an NFL career since the adoption of the 16-game schedule in 1978. (Note: Jon Jansen started all 16 games in the first six seasons in which he played from 1999-2005 but missed the 2004 season with an injury).

      • Guard Brandon Scherff started his 16th game this season, joining Chris Samuels (2000-01) and Jon Jansen (1999-2000) as the only Redskins offensive linemen to open their careers by starting 16 games in each of their first two NFL seasons.
      • The Redskins dropped to 46-37-2 all-time in regular season finales.
