    Default Game Notes 12/4/16: Skins at Cardinals


    · The Washington Redskins fell to the Arizona Cardinals, 31-23, in front of an announced crowd of 64,939 people at University of Phoenix Stadium on Sunday.

    · The Redskins gained 333 yards, exceeding 300 yards of offense in a 16th consecutive regular season game, dating back to last season, for the first time since a team-record 17-game stretch across the 1987-88 seasons.

    · The Redskins have now reached 5,000 offensive yards for a 12th straight season. Only five other NFL teams entered 2016 with an active streak of 11 or more 5,000-yard seasons (Green Bay, New Orleans, New England, Philadelphia and Dallas).

    · The 5,000-yard season posted by the 2016 Redskins is the 28th 5,000-yard season in team history.

    · Quarterback Kirk Cousins completed 21-of-37 passes for 271 yards with one touchdown and one interception.

    · Cousins threw 36 consecutive pass attempts without an interception until his 37th and final attempt of the game. The interception snapped a career-long streak of 187 consecutive pass attempts without an interception, dating back to Week 8 vs. Cincinnati in London.

    · Cousins’ 187 consecutive pass attempts without an interception surpassed Joe Theismann (162 in 1983) for the second-longest streak in team history, trailing only Jason Campbell’s stretch of 271 passes without an interception across the 2007-08 campaigns.

    · Cousins has now thrown at least one touchdown pass in 27 of 28 regular season games since assuming the starting role prior to the 2015 season, including each of the last 11 games dating back to Week 2.

    · With the effort, Cousins (3,811) passed No. 9 Mark Rypien (3,564 in 1991), No. 8 Joe Theismann (3,568 in 1981), No. 7 Jason Campbell (3,618 in 2009), No. 6 Theismann (3,714 in 1983), No. 5 Sonny Jurgensen (3,747 in 1967) and No. 4 Rypien (3,768 in 1989) for fourth on the team's list for passing yardage in a single season.

    · Cousins now has 320 pass completions this season, surpassing Brad Johnson (316 in 1999) for third-most completions in a single season in team history.

    · On a 59-yard pass to wide receiver DeSean Jackson in the third quarter, Cousins surpassed Jason Campbell (10,860) for sixth on the Redskins' career passing yardage list.

    · Cousins recorded his second rushing touchdown of the season on a one-yard plunge in the third quarter. It was his first rushing touchdown since Week 7 at Detroit.

    · The rushing touchdown was the seventh of Cousins’ career.

    · Wide receiver DeSean Jackson recorded a 59-yard reception in the third quarter and has now recorded a 50-yard catch in back-to-back games since Weeks 11-12 of the 2015 season.

    · The 50-yard reception was the 35th of Jackson’s career, the most by any NFL player since Jackson entered the league in 2008.

    · Wide receiver Jamison Crowder caught a 26-yard touchdown pass from Cousins in the third quarter.

    · The touchdown reception was Crowder’s seventh of the season and the ninth of his career.

    · Crowder became the first member of the Redskins to post seven receiving touchdowns in a season within the first two years of an NFL career since Chris Cooley (seven in 2005).

    · The touchdown pass was Cousins’ 21st of the season and the 68th of his career.

    · Crowder finished the game with three receptions for 42 yards with the touchdown. With the effort, Crowder now has 117 career receptions, moving past No. 3 Art Monk (114) and tying No. 2 Rod Gardner (117) on the Redskins' list of receptions across a player's first two NFL seasons.

    · On the Redskins’ first offensive play from scrimmage, wide receiver Pierre Garçon extended his streak of consecutive regular season games played with a reception to 98, the sixth-longest active streak in the NFL. Seventy 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.

    · Garçon recorded a season-high seven receptions for 78 yards.

    · Tight end Vernon Davis started his 150th career regular season game and recorded five receptions for 47 yards.

    · During the contest, Davis passed Steve Jordan (6,307) for 11th-most receiving yards by a tight end in NFL history.

    · Linebacker Ryan Kerrigan started his 92nd consecutive game. Kerrigan has not missed a start in his NFL career.

    · With a second quarter sack of Arizona quarterback Carson Palmer, Kerrigan recorded his 10th sack of the season to become the fifth member of the Redskins to post multiple 10-sack seasons since the NFL adopted sacks as an official statistic in 1982 (Dexter Manley, 4; Charles Mann, 4; Andre Carter, 2; Brian Orakpo, 2).

    · Kerrigan has now posted his second-highest single-season sack total of his career, trailing only a 13.5-sack season in 2014.

    · Kerrigan has now posted a sack in three consecutive games for the second time this season, including a four-game stretch in Weeks 5-8.

    · Linebacker Trent Murphy added to his career-high sack total in the third quarter. Murphy now has 8.0 sacks this season after recording 6.0 total sacks in his first two NFL seasons from 2014-15.

    · The Redskins have now recorded a sack in 20 consecutive regular season games, dating back to last season. Washington's active streak entered the day ranked first in the NFC and fourth in the NFL (Denver, 28; Oakland, 25; Cincinnati, 24).

    · The Redskins pushed a regular season sack streak to 20 games for the first time since a 30-game span across the 2008-10 seasons.

    · Cornerback Bashaud Breeland forced a fumble in the first quarter, his first forced fumble of the season and the sixth forced fumble of his career.

    · Cornerback Quinton Dunbar tied his career high with two passes defensed.

    · Kicker Dustin Hopkins went 3-for-3 on field goal attempts.

    · Hopkins has now made 28 field goals this season, ninth-most in a single season in team history.

    · Hopkins has now made 53 field goals all-time, passing Brett Conway (52) for ninth on the team's all-time career field goals list.

    · With a 47-yard field goal in the second quarter, his 26th field goal of the season, Hopkins surpassed his previous single-season career high of 25 made field goals from the 2015 season.

    · Hopkins hit a season-long 53-yard field goal in the fourth quarter, surpassing 50-yard field goals against Philadelphia in Week 6 and Minnesota in Week 10.

    · The 53-yard field goal was the second-longest of Hopkins’ career, trailing a 54-yarder at Atlanta during the 2015 season.

    · The 53-yard field goal was Hopkins’ career-high third field goal of 50 yards or more this season, tying Brett Conway (1999) and Chip Lohmiller (1990) for fourth-most in a season in team history.

    · Hopkins now has five career field goals of 50 yards or more, tied with Conway for third-most in team history.

    · Running back Chris Thompson recorded a 21-yard reception in the second quarter, his longest since a 38-yard catch vs. Dallas in Week 2.

    · Wide receiver Ryan Grant set season highs with two receptions for 20 yards.

    · The Redskins and Cardinals faced one another for the 122nd time, representing the Redskins’ third-most games played against any opponent. It also marks the Redskins’ most against an opponent in which the series does not include a postseason game.

    · Despite the defeat, the Redskins remain 74-46-2 against the Cardinals all-time. The Redskins’ 74 all-time wins against the Cardinals are their second-most against any franchise.
