Game Notes: Washington Redskins vs. Dallas Cowboys

• The Washington Redskins dropped to 3-12 this season with a 24-23 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in front of an announced crowd of 80,411 people at FedExField on Sunday.
• Wide receiver Pierre Garçon posted a career-high 11 receptions, recording 144 receiving yards and a receiving touchdown.
• Garçon now has 107 receptions this season, breaking Pro Football Hall of Famer Art Monk’s team record for receptions in a single season (106 in 1984).
• Garçon joined Monk as the only players in team history to record triple-digit catches in a season.
• Garçon’s 107 receptions this season lead the league as of the conclusion of Sunday’s 1 p.m. games.
• Garçon’s touchdown reception came on his team-record-tying 106th reception of the season. The receiving touchdown was his fifth of the season, his ninth as a Redskin and the 25th of his career.
