    REDSKINS-49ERS GAME NOTES

    • The Washington Redskins defeated the San Francisco 49ers, 26-24, in front of an announced crowd of 75,568 people at FedExField on Sunday.
    • With the victory, the Redskins improved to 3-2 this season, including a 2-1 record at home.
    • Head Coach Jay Gruden won his 24th game with the Redskins to tie Jack Pardee and Mike Shanahan for sixth-most victories in franchise history.
    • The Redskins gained 419 yards, their second 400-yard offensive effort of the season (472, vs. Oakland). Washington entered the day tied for the second-most 400-yard games in the NFL since 2015.
    • Quarterback Kirk Cousins completed 25-of-37 passes for 330 yards with two touchdowns and one interception for a passer rating of 102.3.
    • Cousins added to his team record for career 300-yard passing games (21, including 20 in regular season play).
    • Cousins has now thrown multiple touchdown passes in three consecutive games for the first time since a four-game stretch in Weeks 8-12 of the 2016 season.
    • Cousins finished a third consecutive game with a passer rating of 100.0 or better for the first time since Weeks 10-12 of the 2016 season.
    • Cousins also rushed four times for 26 yards, including a seven-yard touchdown run late in the fourth quarter.
    • With the 26 rushing yards, Cousins eclipsed 100 rushing yards on the season (103), giving the Redskins four players (Cousins, Chris Thompson, Samaje Perine and Rob Kelley) with at least 100 rushing yards in a season for the first time since 2011 (Roy Helu Jr., Evan Royster, Tim Hightower and Ryan Torain).
    • On his touchdown run, Cousins tied Sonny Jurgensen (10) for the second-most career rushing touchdowns by a Redskins quarterback.
    • The rushing touchdown was Cousins’ first of the season and his first since Week 16 of the 2016 season at Chicago.
    • Cousins added a season-long 18-yard run in the third quarter.
    • Cousins started his 37th consecutive regular season game for the Redskins, already the third-longest streak by a Redskins quarterback since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger behind Joe Theismann (60 from 1980-84) and Mark Rypien (41 from 1990-93).
    • Cousins connected with wide receiver Josh Doctson for an 11-yard touchdown pass on the game’s first drive.
    • The touchdown pass to Doctson was the 80th passing touchdown of Cousins’ career.
    • The receiving touchdown was Doctson’s second of the season and second of his career.
    • The touchdown pass from Cousins to Doctson was the culmination of an eight-play, 75-yard touchdown drive. The Redskins have now scored touchdowns on their first possession in three consecutive games for the first time since Weeks 13-15 of the 2004 season.
    • In the second quarter, Cousins’ 18th pass attempt of the game was intercepted, snapping a streak of 107 consecutive pass attempts without an interception, dating back to Week 1. Cousins’ career-long interception-less streak is 187 attempts, set in Weeks 8-13 in 2016.
    • Running back Chris Thompson recorded 105 receiving yards on four receptions.
    • The 100-yard receiving game was Thompson’s second of the season, making him only the second Redskins running back with multiple 100-yard receiving games in a single season in records dating back to 1960 (Dick James, two in 1962).
    • Thompson joins James, Craig McEwen and Larry Brown as the only Redskins running backs since 1960 with multiple 100-yard receiving games in a career (two each).
    • Thompson recorded a 49-yard reception in the second quarter. He also registered receptions of 23 and 20 yards, giving him a team-high seven receptions of 20 yards or more this season.
    • Thompson also gained 33 rushing yards on a career-high 16 carries, eclipsing his 12-attempt game in Week 7 of the 2016 season at Detroit.
    • Rookie running back Samaje Perine recorded his first career touchdown of any kind in the second quarter on a three-yard pass from Cousins.
    • With Perine scoring his first career touchdown via reception, three of the four running backs (Perine, Rob Kelley, Chris Thompson) on the Redskins’ active roster have scored their first career points on a reception. Mack Brown is the only running back on the Redskins’ current roster to have scored the first points of his career via rush.
    • Perine also caught a career-long 16-yard reception in the first quarter.
    • Running back Mack Brown recorded a career-long 11-yard reception in the second quarter.
    • Tight end Vernon Davis played against the San Francisco 49ers – the team that selected him with the sixth overall pick of the 2006 NFL Draft – for the first time in his career. Davis appeared in 149 career regular season games with the 49ers, posting team records for a tight end in receptions (441), receiving yards (5,640) and receiving touchdowns (55).
    • Davis recorded a 51-yard reception in the fourth quarter. Including a 69-yard catch against Kansas City, Davis has now posted a reception of 50 yards or more in consecutive games for the first time since Weeks 5-6 of the 2013 season as a member of the 49ers.
    • Nine different Redskins players recorded at least one catch. It marks the first time the Redskins have had nine different players finish a game with a catch since Week 12 of the 2016 season at Dallas.
    • Wide receiver Jamison Crowder recorded a career-long 11-yard rush on the game’s first play from scrimmage.
    • The Redskins recorded a sack in a 29th consecutive regular season game, dating back to 2015. Washington’s active streak of 29 games ranks first in the NFC and second in the NFL (Cincinnati, 34).
    • The Redskins recorded three sacks and have now posted three or more sacks in three straight contests for the first time since a five-game stretch in Weeks 5-10 of the 2016 season.
    • Linebacker Preston Smith and defensive lineman Matt Ioannidis split the Redskins’ first sack of the game, dropping 49ers quarterback Brian Hoyer.
    • Smith has now registered at least half a sack in each of the Redskins’ first five games this season. The half-sack pushed his season total to 4.5 and his career total to 17.0. His 4.5 sacks through five games match his full-season output from 2016.
    • Smith joined Marco Coleman (2000), Fred Stokes (1991) and Charles Mann (1989) as the only Redskins to record at least half a sack in each of the first five games of a season since the NFL adopted sacks as an official statistic in 1982.
    • Ioannidis has registered at least half a sack in four of the Redskins’ first five contests this year.
    • Ioannidis registered a full sack in the third quarter, giving him the first multi-sack game of his career.
    • Ioannidis has now recorded full sacks in back-to-back games for the first time in his career.

    • Cornerback Quinton Dunbar earned his first start of the season and recorded a career-high eight tackles (six solo) and matched his career high with two passes defensed.
    • The Redskins pushed their record against NFC West competition this season to 2-0.
    • With wins against Rams Head Coach Sean McVay and 49ers Head Coach Kyle Shanahan, the Redskins are now 2-0 against former Redskins offensive coordinators this season.
    • The Redskins have now earned two straight wins against NFC West opponents for the first time since defeating the Cardinals and Rams in Weeks 2 and 4, respectively, of the 2011 season.
    • The Redskins secured their 14th victory in games directly following a bye since byes were instituted in 1990.
    • The Redskins snapped a four-game losing streak to the 49ers, earning their first win against San Francisco since a 52-17 victory at FedExField on Oct. 23, 2005.

    Gruden has to lock away in his mind the Cousins' bootlegs and read option plays and make sure they are IN THERE for the Eagles game.

    He has a tendency to move away from those plays RIGHT AFTER they have been successful.

    Remember the Detroit game last year? We should have won that game with the Kirk read option touchdown if not for the matador defense.

    But we lost that play over the next couple of games where it could have been used.

    Read option run for our QB should be used sparingly. Last time we used it extensively was 2012. Let that sink in.

    The simplicity in me is complicated.
    I live in my own little world, but that's ok. They know me here.

    I think BB makes a great point, and I think that's what Gruden was alluding to when he said he 'likes it but doesn't love it'. I think Cousins is taking advantage of it when it's there, and that's great because the threat of it makes blitzing a dangerous proposition for teams. But I think using it sparingly is wise. Look at the Packers - their season is probably over with Rodgers down and I think the same thing could happen if Cousins went out (no offense to Colt who I like, but he's no Cousins).
